Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady turned 45 on Wednesday, and there’s really no telling once the seven-time Super Bowl champion might hang up the phone the cleats. Aaron Rodgers, however, is really a different story.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback told reporters Wednesday he doesn’t envision himself playing in the NFL when he’s 45.

“No, I don’t, but happy birthday, Tom,” Rodgers said when asked if he saw himself playing until that age.

Brady is definitely thinking about playing football until his age-45 season. However, he announced his retirement from the NFL in February before unretiring 40 days later to come back to the Buccaneers for a third season.

At this time, it’s unclear once the future Hall of Famer will officially retire, particularly if he continues playing at a higher level.

“Ill know once the times right,” Brady told NBC Sports’ Peter King last summer. “EASILY cant if Im not just a championship-level quarterback, then Im not gonna play. If Im a liability to the team, After all, no chance. But easily think I could win a championship, then Ill play.”

Through the 2021 season, he showed no signs of slowing, completing 67.5 percent of his passes for 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns against 12 interceptions. It had been just the next time he previously thrown for a lot more than 5,000 yards in his career.

While Brady helped lead the Bucs to the playoffs, these were eliminated by the LA Rams in the divisional round.

Now Brady enters his 23rd NFL season eyeing his eighth Super Bowl title, and he and the Buccaneers could have a solid possiblity to capture the championship because they boast among the league’s best offenses.

Tampa Bay’s offensive unit, which include Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Julio Jones, Cameron Brate, Kyle Rudolph, Leonard Fournette and Rachaad White, will wreak havoc on opposing defenses.

If Brady wins another title, it’s hard to assume he’ll hang up the phone the cleats prior to the 2023 season.

For Rodgers, he’ll turn 39 in December. He could be a 10-time Pro Bowler, four-time All-Pro, four-time MVP and a brilliant Bowl champion. Like Brady, he previously a significant 2021 campaign, completing 68.9 percent of his passes for 4,115 yards and 37 touchdowns against four interceptions.

However, Rodgers and the Packers were eliminated from the divisional round with a loss to the SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA 49ers.

If Rodgers plays out his contract, he’ll have at the very least five more seasons to include another Super Bowl title to his set of accomplishments. He’s under contract through the 2026 campaign and can turn into a free agent when he’s 43.

Predicated on his comments on Wednesday, it’s reasonable to trust that’ll be when Rodgers hangs up the cleats, or even sooner.
