A man synonymous with the New England Patriots, Brady has starred for the franchise since 2000, winning the Super Bowl on five occasions and being named Super Bowl MVP four times. He said that he was happy to be spending his birthday week on the practice field.
"I woke up today feeling like I did yesterday morning and the day before that". In fact, Brady has said he wants to play until he's in his mid-40s.
"I just love doing it".
Notable absences from practice included starting left tackle Nate Solder and special teams ace Matthew Slater, as well as wide receiver Cody Hollister.
On Friday, Brady acknowledged the study when asked by reporters but did not spend much time commenting on it. "He's just so fun to be with, so fun to work with".
6 - There are six instances in National Football League history of a quarterback aged 40 or older throwing four or more touchdown passes in a regular season game - three times by Brett Favre, twice by Warren Moon and once by George Blanda.
Brady says, though, that it will take time to become fully comfortable with the newest weapon in his arsenal. We're talking about things. I admired him for so long.
"You see the effects of it from past players, players who have taken their lives, the CTE, all that stuff and, you know, I'm thinking about my family and long term", he said.
"That was a great catch", commended Brady, adding that they were able to get a free play after drawing the defense offsides. We talked about certain things, but yeah, I mean, he was incredible playing as an older quarterback, and he still had a great love for the game. Instead, he used his normal response of things are good, but there is always room for improvement.
During an interview with Access Hollywood past year, Brady spoke of his marriage to Bundchen, admitting that they've gone through ups and downs.
"There is a lot of talent and the guys have worked hard, but we're at the beginning like everyone else".
"You know, I'm just saying that as a wife, I'm a bit anxious, she explained. We're still at the beginning but it's been fun to be out here".
