Report: Gisele tried to get Brady's friend to convince Tom to retire

Report: Gisele tried to get Brady's friend to convince Tom to retire

This past spring, Gisele Bundchen tried to have Tom Brady's college friend, former kicker Jay Feely, convince the Patriots quarterback to retire, according to a Sports Illustrated story.

Here's that anecdote from Greg Bishop's profile of Brady in this week's SI: 

Last spring Brady and his family vacationed with retired kicker Jay Feely, a close friend from their college days at Michigan. This being Brady, Feely prefers not to disclose the locale, but he does share that Brady’s wife, the supermodel Gisele Bündchen, spent time on that trip “trying to get me to convince [Tom] to stop playing.” And, Feely adds, “‘she was dead serious.’”

Feely says he looked at his friend and told him, “Play as long as you can.” Brady smiled back and winked.

Brady has been pretty adamant about wanting to play until he's 45. At about the same time as the story Feely told SI, Bundchen spoke about a concussion she said Brady suffered last season. And Brady tried to clarify that in training camp this past summer by basically saying it was nobody's business. Expect plenty more of the how-long-will-you-keep-playing questions next week at the Super Bowl in Minneapolis.
