Tom Brady thinks he can play football until he is 50 – but his wife, Gisele Bundchen, may feel differently.
In the new installment of Tampa Bay’s “Tommy & Granky” series, Brady and the Buccaneers answer some of the most searched questions on the internet about tight end Rob Gronkowski.
“Could Tom Brady play until he was 50?” Gronkowski asks – Brody jokingly replies, “I’m not hard … so I feel like I can play and then retire. [in Florida]. I think I can. It’s ‘yes.’ ”
Then Chimes (1:39 mark) to put a “little spin” on the Gronkowski question.
“Will Gisele let Tom play at 50? That’s the real question,” declared Gronkowski, who is dating Sports Illustrated Swim Suit model Camille Kostek.
“That’s a good question,” Brady said, laughing. “Sure, no, that’s the answer.”
While Gronkowski was laughing well, Brady immediately backed off, glanced at the camera and sent a sweet message to Bundchen.
“I’m sorry, baby. I’m in love with you. You’ll let me in. You’ll let me do whatever I want until I’m happy.”
Bondichen has been concerned about how long Brady plans to play.
Brady, throughout his 20-year career with the Patriots, has always maintained that he plans to play until his mid-40s. He turned 44 last month.
In June, he discussed playing under 50, after Bucks general manager Jason Licht said in May, “I told him if he wants to play under 50 and he still plays and he can still play, then he can play at 50.”
Brady said at the time USA Today, “50? That’s a long time. Even for me, it’s a long time. I’ve always wanted to reach the age of 45 and that’s my goal. I’m 44 this year, so I’m 45 next year. I’ve got a two-year lease.
The Bucks expanded Brady’s contract to keep the future Hall of Famer in Tampa through 2022.
Brady showed no signs of slowing down in the Tampa Bay season-opener against the Cowboys last Thursday. He started Season No. 22 by throwing for 379 yards and four touchdowns in the Bucks’ 31-29 win over Dallas.
