Eventually, he took care of himself by maintaining a strict diet and going in for regular workouts.
But no one thought that he would continue to play until his mid-40s.
Usually, this is the age when most football players retire and enjoy their second career.
However, Brady is still playing at a high level and it seems that Father Time has left him.
Now that he is turning one year old, he has accomplished a goal that he has been proclaiming for a long time.

Pro Football Focus’ Ari Mirov tweeted, “#Books’ QB Tom Brady turns 45 today. He said years ago he wanted to play until he was 45. He wasn’t kidding.’
Initially, the goal of playing until he turned 45 was a part of a marketing ploy for his TB12 fitness center.
Now that it’s true, what a way to promote your brand.
The scary part is that he is not slowing down and can still play beyond 45.
Last season, he had 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns, finishing second in the MVP race behind Aaron Rodgers,
but with the return of his top goals and the addition of Julius JonesBrady will be one of the top quarterbacks in the league.
Brady’s next target
It is not certain whether Brady will continue to play football beyond 2022, especially as he is in the final year of his contract with the Buccaneers.
But if he has another strong season, he can continue to play until he reaches George BlendThe feat
The quarterback who was friendly for the Chicago Bears, Baltimore Colts, Houston Oilers and Oakland Raiders until he turned 48.
Brady is just three seasons away and it would be foolish to think that he isn’t thinking about pursuing Blanda.
If the Buccaneers win Super Bowl LVII, Brady could return for another run.
