Tom Brady wants to play until he’s 45, whether he had a concussion last season or not, but an anonymous AFC East rival of TB12 told Bleacher Report that it’s “a joke to think that Brady can play that long.”
"It was always a joke to think that Brady can play that long. It's impossible,” the player, described as one of Brady’s division rivals who has faced him, told B/R’s Mike Freeman.
"Tom is the greatest player I've ever seen, but when I got concussions in my 20s, it took me weeks to recover,” the player said. “If you get one at 43 or 45, I don't think your brain would ever be the same again."
Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, raised the concussion issue this week in a CBS Morning Show interview. Saints quarterback Drew Brees, told the Dan Patrick Show, he wouldn’t tell his wife if he had a concussion.
