Tom Brady is 43 years old, and he’s still a starting quarterback for an NFL team.
That alone is an exceptional feat, but what’s downright astounding is that he led the Bucs to a Super Bowl win earlier in the year. Brady’s the oldest quarterback to have ever won a title, as he actually broke his previous record, which he set in 2019.
What’s really crazy is that Brady hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down anytime soon. He and LeBron James have teams of people working for them, helping to optimize their muscle recovery, nutrition, training and even sleep.
Brady did undergo knee surgery a few months back, and he admitted it was the first of its kind he’d had to do in 12 years. It remains to be seen how that’ll affect his performance this season, but oddsmakers don’t see Brady slowing down anytime.
In fact, Bovada put up a prop bet for when Brady will retire, and “after the start of the 2022 season” is actually the favorite, at -190.
Brady has indicated he wants to play until he’s 45 in the past, so this prop bet aligns with the career goals he’s shared with us. We’ll see if it happens.
