Tom Brady has revealed his intention to keep playing in the NFL until he is 50 years old.

“I think I can, I think it is a yes,” the 44-year-old quarterback said on “Tommy and Gronky,” a YouTube show produced by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brady’s longtime teammate and Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski responded with a twist.

“There’s a little spin to that question,” Gronkowski said. “I think it’s, ‘Will Gisele (Brady’s wife) let Tom play ’til 50?'”

“That is a way better question,” Brady answered. “I’m just kidding, I’m sorry, babe. I love you. You would let me. You would let me do anything, as long as I’m happy.”

The current record for the oldest player to play in the NFL is held by George Blanda, who was a kicker and quarterback for the then Oakland Raiders. He was 48 years old at the time of his retirement in 1975.

Brady is at least set to keep playing through the 2022 NFL season. He agreed to sign a one-year extension with the Bucs in March, keeping him under contract through next season. He will turn 46 before the 2023 NFL season.

Tampa Bay opened the season with a 31-29 victory against the Dallas Cowboys at Raymond James Stadium last week.

The Buccaneers will host the Atlanta Falcons on September 19.
