Attention fans of the 31 National Football League teams that are looking forward to the day when Tom Brady finally retires: Don't hold your breath. We'll hear from the likes of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, Sean McVay, Jared Goff, Rob Gronkowski, Todd Gurley, Wade Phillips, and every other player and coach for the Rams and Patriots.

When ESPN's Jeff Darlington asked Brady if there's any chance Super Bowl LIII could be his last game, Brady was quite clear.

"I've set a goal for myself at 45", he continued. "I know how hard it was this year, you know, and the commitment it takes and hopefully I've learned from some of the things that happened this year to be better next year".

Given the fact that Brady turns 42 this summer, it'd be easy to assume the Patriots starting quarterback might be moving on (and, in so doing, opening wide the doors of competition).


"I imagine as soon as I step on that field in Atlanta it'll be electric, a great atmosphere, and really just be a fast field - let us play our game, and just roll our way to victory."


'I've said that for a long time.

On Sunday morning, thousands of Patriots fans turned up at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., for a now-familiar midwinter ritual in New England: the Super Bowl send-off rally.

The remarks should give the 41-year-old Brady a few days to stew, and it firmly landed the 27-year-old Robey-Coleman right back in the center of controversy. We going to see on Sunday.

The five-time Super Bowl champion and three-time regular-season MVP led the Patriots to an 11-5 record in 2018 - his 19th season - while completing 65.8 percent of his passes for 4,355 yards and 29 touchdowns against 11 interceptions.
