Brady’s time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is always a huge topic of discussion as the quarterback continues to play at a remarkable rate despite being 44 years old right now.
Last month, Tom Brady even went so far as to say that he can play until he is 50 years of age, which certainly made fans wonder whether he can maintain that level of condition for 6 more years.
While speaking with USA Today Sports, NFL legend Joe Montana stated that he believes Tom Brady can play till the age of 60 due to the lower level of physicality in games nowadays.
“They don’t even touch him. He’s hardly ever getting hit. So, he could play until maybe 60, I don’t know. It’s always about the physical part. How long can you handle that part of it?
The way it is with the rules today, he just doesn’t take those big hits anymore. Yeah, he gets hit on occasion, but it’s never one of those, ‘300 pounds compressing you into the ground.’ They stopped that from being legal. They just don’t do that anymore.”
Tom Brady recovered from COVID-19 earlier this year as well. We will have to wait and see whether Tom Brady will be able to play till he is 50 or even 60 as fans would love to see him play for as long as he can.
