There is absolutely no denying the fact that Tom Brady will go down in history as one of the best quarterbacks of any NFL franchise. His work ethic is impressive and his win ratio is phenomenal. But at forty-two years old many are wondering exactly how much longer can he continue to deliver on the field. Every athlete has to hang up their cleats at some point, yet Brady has been holding on tightly as he still wishes to remain in the game.

Brady has long stated his desire to play the game for as long as he can, but normally whenever one thinks of Brady they immediately think of the team he's played with for his entire NFL career; the New England Patriots. Appearing in nine Super Bowls and winning six of them Brady has most certainly solidified his name as one of the greatest legends of football. And he still has enough gas going in his engine for a few more years. The New York Post Reports;

Tom Brady, who has said he wants to play until age 45, did not completely rule out retirement after the New England Patriots’ season-ending 20-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Saturday night’s AFC wild-card game in Foxborough, Mass.

New England’s legendary quarterback said it’s “pretty unlikely” that his career is over.

Brady, whose contract is up after this season, also was cryptic about whether he will play for the Patriots next season.

“Who knows what the future holds?” the 42-year-old Brady said.

And what of his teammates? How are they feeling about Brady at this current stage of his career? Well according to the New York Post Brady may not be ready to leave the game just yet, however he might not be moving forward with the Patriots.

“I believe the Patriots are 100 percent done,” retired Patriots tight end Christian Fauria said of Brady on WEEI’s “Ordway, Merloni & Fauria.” “I think the Patriots are okay and ready to move on.”

Fauria continued his theory, even referencing a recent stunt Brady pulled with the LA Chargers.

“I think the Patriots knew they weren’t signing him before the season started,” Fauria said. “I don’t think they want him for $13 million, I don’t think they want him period, and I think that Brady knows it. Why do you like a tweet from the LA Chargers?”

Brady will more than likely continue to draw out America's fascination with his next move. But if he's not playing for the Patriots then where will he end up?
