And even though he's agreed to appear on the cover of Madden NFL 18's "G.O.A.T. Edition", Brady said recently that he doesn't agree with the assessment that he's surpassed Joe Montana as the greatest quarterback of all time.

On playing into his mid-40s and potentiall his late 40s: "I always said my mid-40s, and naturally that means around 45". It's not Magic, Jeter, Mariano (Rivera), Kobe, Duncan, guys more my age who I always admired.
