Tom Brady retires: Will New England Patriots star retire after Super Bowl? Is it his LAST | NFL | Sport


Tom Brady, 41, is going for another Super Bowl ring this weekend as his New England Patriots face the LA Rams in Atlanta.

Brady already has five Super Bowl rings and can become the first man to six if the Patriots beat the Rams tonight.

Brady is already the oldest player to start a Super Bowl match, setting the record aged 39 in 2017, breaking it again last year at 40 and will break it again tonight at 41.

So could the man most recognise as the greatest QB of all time call it a day after tonight’s showdown?

He says not. Insisting there is ‘zero’ chance he will retire from the sport he’s played professionally since 2000 when he was the 199th, a compensatory pick, in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft for New England, who has played for ever since.

Brady’s contract with the Patriots expires after the 2019 season but the team are ready to ‘do anything’ get him stay.

“The last three years our team has gone to the Super Bowl under his leadership,” Patriots owner Robert Kraft told Sky Sports.

“We have gone four of the last five years and people speak about his age. We would be kind of silly not to do everything we can to keep it going and we will.”

And Brady says talking of stepping away from the sport has been confusing him – despite his age.

“I’m not understanding that [the speculation],” Brady said. “I’m beginning to sound like a broken record.

“I want to play, I want to play well.

“When I can’t play well anymore, I’ll move on to something else.

“I’ll do all the chores at home like all the other dads.

“Until then, just play football, try to have some fun and try to win some games.”

And when speaking about retirement on the late show he insists he will continue to be active.

“After football, I’m going to play baseball,” Brady said.

“And after baseball, I’m going to play Hamlet.”
