Alex Guerrero, Tom Brady’s trainer, says quarterback wants to play at 47

It seems Tom Brady’s expiration date is getting further out of sight.

During an appearance Thursday on WEEI, Brady’s trainer and controversial confidant, Alex Guerrero, said the 42-year-old quarterback wants to play into his late 40s.

“It all comes to commitment, really,” Guerrero said. “No one thought you could play at the elite level in your late 30s, early 40s. That is something we always felt we could do. I have really wanted to be there to help him accomplish that goal. I certainly do believe that 45 is a very realistic goal.”

Brady has long maintained that he wishes to play until he’s 45, but the six-time Super Bowl champ is keen to push Father Time’s buttons.

“We talk about it all the time. Every year he just adds another year. He goes in and he’s like, ‘Guys, I feel so good still. I think I am going to go ’til 45.’ I am like, ‘OK.’ Now he’s like, ‘Alex, I think I can go like 46 or 47,’” Guerrero said.

Though Brady’s future beyond the 2019 season remains uncertain, as he will become a free agent next year, Guerrero said his focus remains on preparing his pal for Sunday.

“It’s not July 2020. I am focused on today. I am just trying to get Tom ready for practice today. It’s Thursday,” he said.

The Patriots face the Eagles on Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia.
