New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady repeated his intention to continue playing in 2019 and beyond. Brady said in an interview, “I absolutely believe I will. I know I’ve talked about it for a long time. I have goals to not only play next year, but beyond that. I’m going to try to do it as best I possibly can. I’m going to give it everything I have, like I always have. It will certainly be a challenge. I don’t take any of these things for granted, but I hope I can keep playing, and I hope I can keep playing at a championship level.”

Brady’s current contract expires after the 2019 season. He has spent his entire 19-year career with the Patriots.
