Tom Brady

first_imgWhen New England was on TV the other night, I was again reminded that Tom Brady wants to play professional football until he reaches 45.  Since his birthday is in August, this would mean another 4 seasons.  It is quite obvious from his performance this year that he is capable of doing so.  However, why would you want to?He is currently making $24 million a year.  I suppose that is enough incentive to put your body through the pounding you take each season as a pro athlete.  On the other hand, unless he has a poor financial adviser, he surely doesn’t need that much more money in order to survive.Why not retire while you are on top and can still walk?  With his background, he will surely get some kind of TV job when he does retire.  After all, look at Peyton Manning and all he is doing.last_img
