NFL Notebook: Brady confirms he will play next year


The drama of the playoff picture as the Week 17 National Football League results roll in might peak well before the Colts and Titans play a de facto playoff game Sunday night. Now it looks as if the Patriots quarterback isn't going to hang it up after what has become a somewhat hard 2018 season. I wake up every day excited to go to work. fulfilled.

Sunday stakes: What will be at stake when the Patriots wrap up the regular season by playing host to the New York Jets at Gillette this Sunday?

This is the news that all Patriots fans wanted to hear.

Brady said this week on Westwood One radio that he "absolutely" believes he'll play next season and hopes to extend his career beyond that.

"I have goals to not only play next year, but beyond that", Brady said. Brady then went to acknowledge, "It will certainly be a challenge". According to NFL Matchup on ESPN, the Steelers only have a 2.5 percent drop rate, which is good for fifth-best in the NFL. "I don't take any of these things for granted, but I hope I can keep playing, and I hope I can keep playing at a championship level".

At 41 years old and with hundreds of millions in the bank, it's not unusual to wonder if New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady is considering hanging up his cleats sometime soon. As prolific as his career has been, Brady has begun to show signs of that aging he has defied for many years now and has not almost been as sharp in recent weeks.

So far this season, Brady has 4,105 passing yards and 25 touchdowns.

Brady will be 42 at the start of next season, and he's said in the past that he would like to play until he's well into his 40s.

"I feel great. I really do", Brady told reporters Monday, adding that he felt "100 percent" in terms of his health. "So, we'll just concentrate on the Jets and worry about next year, next year, worry about next week, next week, worry about last year some other year".
