Tom Brady could play for the Buccaneers beyond the 2021-2022 season?
It’s starting to become almost something of a running joke at this point to guess when this man/this GOAT will retire (either by personal choice or a clear and obvious loss of talent), but when Licht said: “Hey! Our people are in talks for contract extensions.” There was not a single person that batted an eye. Of course, this would be Tom Brady’s last year of a 2-year $50 million contract that he signed in the 2020 offseason. However, it’s clear from press junkets and things of that nature that Brady feels incredibly more eager to talk about playing until he’s 50 than retiring when he’s 44. When Brady does eventually hang up the cleats, it should be as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and it most likely will be if this success of the team holds up.
The oldest person to ever throw a football in the National Football League was George Blanda at age 48, and you’d be kidding yourself if you didn’t think that Tom Brady knew about that record & wanted it for himself! Brady is the most competitive human on the planet so we may already know the answer to this question.
