The legendary NFL quarterback Tom Brady is at the point in his life where his kids are playing sports.
He has a son that plays football and is a quarterback.
But after spending most of his life in football, Brady would be fine if his son chose to do something else.
Brady went on NFL Live to talk about his son playing football.
He said he “wouldn’t choose” for his son to play football due to the unfair expectations that would be placed on him.

There is no doubt many people would expect Brady’s son to fill his father’s footsteps.
But comparing any player to the career of Brady is not fair.
It is very unlikely that he would be able to repeat the success or longevity that Brady had in his career.
Brady mentioned how he will support all of his children in any path they choose.
You have to have an extreme amount of toughness to subject yourself to the punishment NFL players take year in and year out.
It makes sense that Brady does not want to see his son deal with that.
More than anything, Brady just wants his kids to find something they love to do.
It will be interesting to see if Brady’s son decides to continue playing football.
He certainly has a great father to learn from and most likely developed a love for the game like his dad.
But there is no doubt he will have to deal with the sky-high expectations.
That is the price of having a father that is considered the GOAT.NEXT: Case Keenum Opens Up About Being Back In Houston
