We will get to see New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady in the NFL in 2019 as well. Many analysts wondered whether Brady will consider retiring if he wins Super Bowl LIII, which would be his sixth, on Sunday and we got that answer sooner than expected.

In a recent interview with ESPN‘s Jeff Darlington, Tom Brady was asked if there’s any chance that Super Bowl LIII is his last game.

“Zero” – responded Brady and confirmed what he has been saying for the entire season.

“I’ve said that for a long time,” – he added. “I feel like I’m asked that a lot, and I feel like I repeat the same answer. But no one believes me.”

When Tom Brady, who is currently 41 years old, said early last year that he intends to play until 45, many people didn’t believe him since no one played so long on such a high level. But in seven days, Brady will have two Super Bowl appearances in his forties, and you have to wonder how far can he go.

This year wasn’t remarkable for him when you consider some of his performances in several past seasons, but Tom Brady has been still playing closely to All-Pro level. He completed 375 out of 570 passes for 4,355 yards, 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Although there are some slight signs of decline, Brady is setting the new standards for longevity and the rest of the league continues to look closely.
