While it’s rare enough to see a 45-year-old quarterback in the NFL, he raises the stakes by playing at a high level and starting for the Super Bowl LV champions.
Last season, he finished second in the Most Valuable Player race behind Aaron Rodgers after finishing with 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns.
His 2021 campaign was arguably his best season throughout his 21-year career
He is poised to have another strong year in 2022, given the talented cast of players around him.
These athletes could help him lead the Buccaneers to another postseason berth.
But before they reach that goal, Brady would like to maintain his dominance against the Dallas Cowboys.
