Tom Brady has been able to play at the highest level in the NFL for a ridiculously-long time. One of his new Buccaneers teammates shows this perfectly.

Tom Brady with the Buccaneers-is he just the case of incredible luck at staying healthy through a long career, or does his formula for maintaining his health actually open a new door in the world of sports science and maintenance?

Regardless, Brady’s career and the ability to play at such a high level at this age is nothing short of astounding. The GOAT made a legitimate case to win the MVP last season, and there is still reason to believe that he can do the same thing this year.

What makes this career even harder to believe is just how much older Brady actually is. 44 is old for any athlete in any sport. It’s just crazy that Brady is old enough to be the father to some of his teammates.

Rookie defensive lineman Logan Hall shows this perfectly.

Hall was born six days days after Tom Brady was drafted. Let that sink in for a moment.

Players with kids get drafted all the time. The fact that Brady has been able to play at this level for so long that he could be on the same team as his son in the sport of football is otherworldly.

LeBron James is trying to do the same thing in basketball, which is already a difficult task on its face with the higher volume of games, but Brady being 24 years older than one of his youngest teammates in football is still a far more impressive accomplishment.

Brady isn’t even slowing down with the Buccaneers either. It would be one thing if he was aging and hurting the team as he tried to extend his time in league, but this is another level in the realm of accomplishments.

Here’s to hoping that Brady can find a way to keep this going for the benefit of the Bucs.
