This Sunday, he takes on another veteran quarterback, Drew Brees, and the New Orleans Saints. During a press conference ahead of the game, Tom Brady opened up about his relationship with Drew Brees.

Like Brady, Brees has been playing in the NFL into his 40s. Drew Brees turns 42 today and still continues to play at an extremely high level.

However, there are rumors afloat that suggest that Brees is nearing the end of his career. Many analysts are stating that Brees will retire at the end of the season to pursue his career as an analyst.

Tom Brady continues to shine

On the other hand, Brady is still looking to cement his legacy further. After winning 6 Super Bowls with the New England Patriots, Brady is eager to show he can still go. He wants to prove to detractors that he can win another Super Bowl without the help of the renowned coach Bill Belichick.

Brady showed this season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that he is still an elite quarterback. He helped his new team secure a spot in the Playoffs, despite tensions throughout the season with Head Coach Bruce Arians.
