The NFL meetings are going on in Phoenix this week. Yesterday, according to the Boston Herald, New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft gave an impromptu press conference and one of the subjects was Tom Brady's retirement. The former Michigan Wolverine's QB turns 40 this August. So how many years will Tom keep playing in the NFL? Back in the 70s, George Blanda played quarterback until he was 43. Later on, Steve DeBerg and Warren Moon played until they were 44.

So, 42 or 43 for Brady? Nope.

Tom Brady told Bob Kraft he can play until he's 46 or 47. I know Brady's very healthy, but (IMO) defensive linemen are getting healthier and bigger by the moment. And THAT'S what Tom has to worry about.

Here's the story.
