SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA, December 15, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — With a whopping six Super Bowl appearances in his 17-year, Hall of Fame-bound career, it stands to reason that one has to wonder just how many more times they can expect to see 39-year-old superstar quarterback Tom Brady back in the big dance before he hangs up his cleats.
Brady made his first Super Bowl appearance in his second season in the league and first as a full-time starter after supplanting former starter Drew Bledsoe way back in 2001. Successive Super Bowl appearances came for Brady in 2003, 2004, 2007, 2011 and 2014.
Not only that, but Brady has won four of the six Super Bowls he has appeared in, including the first three of his career against the St. Louis Rams, Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles, respectively.
“I’d like to play a long time,” Brady said during a conference call with New York media just over a year ago. “There’s a lot that goes into playing well. I’ve played with a lot of great teammates. But I want to play for a long time, maybe 10 more years. I think that’s probably what my goal is.”
For reference, the oldest player to ever suit up under center in an NFL game was the legendary George Blanda, who was 48 years old when he played his final game for the Oakland Raiders in January 1976. If Brady plays through the 2025 season he would end up breaking Blanda’s record, but does he really believe he can play that long? There’s no way to predict that, but in the meantime, let’s review the odds released by MyBookie.ag:
