Tom Brady is 45 yrs . old, a seven-time Super Bowl champion and widely thought to be the very best quarterback in NFL history.
But, in his eyes, he still has something to prove.
“Yeah, I’ve too much to prove,” he said on the Let’s Go! podcast with Jim Gray (h/t Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times). “I’ve got too much to prove this season. I’m on the market to prove that I’m still with the capacity of leading a team to a championship.”
Despite what he said, Brady really does not have anything to prove.
Along with having more Lombardi Trophies than any single franchise, the legend is really a five-time Super Bowl MVP, three-time league MVP and 15-time Pro Bowler who already proved he is able to lead Tampa Bay to a title through the 2020 campaign.
He might be 45 yrs . old, but he showed no signs of slowing last season while he completed 67.5 percent of his passes for a league-best 5,316 yards, 43 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Yet it’s been something of a turbulent offseason, as he took time from the Buccaneers during training camp and saw multiple offensive linemen, including center Ryan Jensen, suffer injuries which could leave the team shorthanded through the entire campaign.
Despite having the adversity, Buccaneers fans could possibly be forgiven for assuming everything will undoubtedly be fine so long as Brady is under center.
The all-time great has essentially done only win throughout his career but still has Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Leonard Fournette, Cameron Brate, Julio Jones, Russell Gage among others surrounding him on the offense.
And he could be apparently still motivated to prove himself even yet in his 22nd season.
