Expect the five-time champion to return next season.
Tom Brady has had a legendary career. With five Super Bowl championships and eight Super Bowl appearances under his belt, it can be argued that Brady is not just the best quarterback of all time, but one of the best players of all time period. At 41 years old, Brady is showing no signs of slowing down and has confirmed that he plans to come back and play next season.
In a radio interview with Westwood One, Brady said "I absolutely believe I will. I know I've talked about it for a long time: I have goals to not only play next year, but beyond that. I'm going to try to do it as best I possibly can. I'm going to give it everything I have, like I always have."

Brady, who is in his 19th season with the Patriots, just led his team to their 10th straight AFC East title thanks to a 24-12 victory against the Buffalo Bills. Despite that, the Patriots have struggled at times this season and currently sport a record of 10-5. With a little luck, they could still end up being the first place team in the AFC which would allow them to skip the Wild-Card round.
The Patriots play the New York Jets next weekend in what will be the last game of the regular season.
