New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says quarterback Tom Brady told him he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
“As recently as two, three days ago, he assured me he’s willing to play six, seven more years,” Kraft said Monday, per NFL.com. “At the level he performed, there is no one who would be happier than I am and our fan base. When you think about it, there’s one player at the age of 40 who had one good year: Favre (when he was with) the Vikings.
“I think Tommy’s sustained excellence is just unbelievable. It’s a lifestyle. He’s in training. I remember after our first Super Bowl going down to the trainer in the old Foxboro Stadium three days after we won and he’s in there with the music blaring, working out. The thing that’s amazing about him, to this day he hasn’t changed as a human being in terms of how he relates to people, but also how he works out. The only thing is he changes how he eats, how he diets. I’m not sure avocado ice cream is right for me, so if I can look like him and perform half as well, I guess I’ll do it.”
