Tom Brady is as sharp a quarterback as we’ve ever seen, but could he really continue to play at a high level up until he’s near 50 years of age? Brady seems to think so, telling the Associated Press that his goal is to play 10 more seasons, which is 26 total for his career.

“I’d like to play a long time, yeah, a long time,” Brady said Wednesday. “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.”

Brady, who would be 48 when such a goal was finished, said he would play as long as a team wanted him.

“Well, it’s not always up to me,” he said. “That’s what my goals are, so that’s just what I’m hoping. And it will take a lot to achieve that. Obviously, a team has to want you, but I think that’s, you know, I love playing this sport. I love making a commitment to my teammates and my coaches, and hopefully I can do it for a long time.”

The 10-time Pro Bowler has led New England to a perfect 5–0 record, while amassing 1,699 yards passing for 14 touchdowns with just one interception.
