It's always good to see that a player has a strong commitment to a team, but is Tom Brady being a bit overeager here?

How long is too long to play a professional sport? New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said in a recent interview that he wants to play in the NFL into his forties. Do we have another Brett Favre on our hands?

The real question will be if Tom Brady is capable of playing the same as the years go on. He just turned 35 years old, so at this point he is on the downside of his career. The fact that he wants to play until he's 40 means he'll be going at least five more years, if not more.
