Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was quizzed on whether he feels he can play as long as Tom Brady to which Mahomes replied that he wants to play for as long as possible and be able to help the team. Mahomes addressed that it’s a difficult feat to achieve but once you play at the highest level you don’t want to quit it.

“I want to play as long as I can play, and I can still have a chance to help the team get better,” Mahomes said. “Obviously, it’s hard to play until you’re 45 years old, and I don’t want to be out there just hanging on. You see what Tom is — he’s still playing at a very high level. I think that’s why it’s hard for him to kind of give it up – when you’re playing at a high level you don’t want to leave it.”

Furthermore Patrick Mahomes also appreciated that what Tom Brady has been able to achieve at this age is something ‘special. He added that throughout his career Tom Brady hasn’t had a single off season and has looked for ways to get better.

“I mean it’s special to see the things that he’s done in this league,” Mahomes said. “The way he was able to change the position, the longevity of great success – I mean that’s the crazy part – you look at his career and there’s never really been a down year. He’s always been great and had a great season and found ways to get even better. He’s done stuff off the field that hasn’t impacted him on the field, but still made his legacy even greater so it’s always a great opportunity for me and our team to go up against a great quarterback and really [measure] where our team is at.”
