If Tom Brady plays out the remainder of his contract with the New England Patriots, he’ll have four more cracks at his fifth Super Bowl ring.
Joe Montana likes Brady’s chances.
“If the Patriots keep the team together, Tom’s got a good chance (to win a fifth Super Bowl title before he retires),” Montana, owner of four Super Bowl rings, recently told NFL Media’s Brooke Cersosimo. “It’s hard to keep the teams together, and you have to have things going your way at the end of the line. Sometimes it’s easier to get close to it than actually to obtain it. He’s definitely had some pretty good years at this point.”
Sure, the Patriots quarterback is 38 years old and entering his 17th NFL season. And sure, Father Time is undefeated. But New England still looks like a perennial championship contender. And Brady has shown no signs of slowing down. Montana might be onto something.
Brady, whose contract runs through the 2019 season, would become the first quarterback in NFL history to reel in five rings, snapping a three-way tie between him, Montana and Terry Bradshaw.
