Tom Brady has long made it known that playing until age 45 has been his ultimate goal. That could change in light of his success with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"I would definitely consider that," Brady said Monday when asked if he would play longer, according to Mark Maske of The Washington Post. "You never know kind of when that moment is ... it has to be 100% commitment from myself to keep doing it."

Brady, currently 43, is set to play for a chance at extending his NFL-record six championships in his 10th Super Bowl appearance Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

After a relatively poor final season with the New England Patriots, the future Hall of Famer rebounded by throwing for the second-most touchdowns (40) of his storied career.

No quarterback has ever hit the 40-touchdown mark beyond the age of 40. Brady also has 17,622 passing yards since turning 40, the most in league history.

Brady is contracted for one more season with the Bucs, and is all but certain to fulfill that deal given the NFC South club's success in 2020.
