FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who has been thinking about football in his lifetime, reiterated his intention to go back to Old School in 2019 and beyond, meaning that Gronk will occasionally be used for a blocking TE.
"I absolutely believe that I will do that, and I know I've talked about it for a long time: not only do I have the goal of not only playing next year, but beyond," Brady said in his weekly interview over Westwood One. "I will try to do it as well as possible, I will give everything I have, as I always have."
"It will certainly be a challenge. I do not take that for granted, but I hope I can continue to play and I hope I can continue to play at the championship level.
Brady's current contract expires after the 201
Brady, 41, won his 14th place in the Pro Bowl tournament game this season and joined an elite group Tony Gonzalez, Peyton Manning, Bruce Matthews, and Merlin Olsen In his radio interview, Brady talked about the place football has in his life.
"For 19 years, I've been able to lead a career that I love. I wake up every day, excited to go to work. I wake up every day with what I do. I do not think there is a greater gift in my life than having this, "he said.
" Along with that, there have been a lot of other very cool options, but in my heart and soul I play that I like soccer and it has brought so much joy in my life. It tests you in so many ways. I have been dealing with this for a long time. There are anxiety and nerves as well as joy and happiness. There is disappointment and frustration. The emotions determine the bandwidth. But if you can stay and build your mental strength, it's just incredibly rewarding. I am a very, very happy man.
Brady has helped set the Patriots to a 10/5 record this season, though his performance was not at the level of 2017 when he won the NFL's Most Valuable award for player Brady has 351 of 537 passes for 4,105 Yards completed, with 25 touchdowns and 11 interceptions – the number is partly influenced by a valley reduction in its environment.

"It has been 15 weeks of football and there are always bumps and bruises that need to be dealt with." , But for this season I feel great. I will take it every year to feel as good as at this time of the season.
The Patriots conquered their 10th AFC East Championship in a row, and if they beat the New York Jets at home on Sunday, they will do well to secure a first round in the playoffs for the ninth straight season.
