Tom Brady plans to keep playing.
The Patriots quarterback told ESPN there is a “zero'” percent chance he retires after Super Bowl 53.
“I’ve set a goal for myself at 45,” Brady said. “Like I’ve said before, it’s very hard to make it that far. I know how hard it was this year and the commitment it takes.”
“I think it’s just, I’m going to know when the time is right (to retire). And I’m going to feel like, I’ve kind of had enough. I don’t quite feel like that yet. … I still feel like I can continue to do it at a championship level.”

Brady, 41, will compete in his ninth Super Bowl against the Rams on Feb. 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. He is 5-3 on the biggest stage and has a chance to become the first quarterback to get six Super Bowl wins as a starter.
New England faced adversity throughout the regular season in 2018-19 but finished with an 11-5 record.
