Brady not mulling retirement

Brady was named the MVP of Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, helping lead the Patriots to a dramatic 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Arizona.

His current contract runs until the end of the 2017 season, at which time the quarterback will be 40 years old.

“I’ve got a lot of football left,” Brady said. “It’s hard to play this game and it takes a big commitment, a lot of sacrifice.

“For all the players that have played in the past and I’ve looked up to and admired and lot of the players now who I look up to admire ??? it’s a big challenge and it’s incredible to experience this feeling once and I???ve been fortunate to play on four really great teams, so I???m really blessed.???

Regardless of when Brady chooses to hang up his cleats, he has already made his mark on the record books.??

His figures from this year’s Super Bowl victory??- 50 passes with a record 37 completions and four touchdown passes – earned him his third Super Bowl MVP award and his fourth Super Bowl championship, equalling the mark set by??Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw.??

Brady’s high-flying career – of which all 15 years has been at New England – had inauspicious beginings, with the quarterback selected as the 199th pick in the 2000 draft.
