Video shows Tom Brady running faster now than at the Combine

Getty Images

Not many NFL players are faster at nearly 42 years old than they were at their Scouting Combine, but Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a little different.

Brady and his team posted a video today of him running what they say is a 5.17-second 40-yard dash. That’s far from elite for an NFL player, but it’s an impressive time for Brady.

That’s because at the 2000 Scouting Combine, Brady ran the 40 in 5.28 seconds. Few athletes — few people in the general population, for that matter — can run faster in their early 40s than in their early 20s.

Brady, who will turn 42 on August 3, runs shirtless in the new video and looks better than he did in his famously pudgy appearance at the Scouting Combine. Heading into his 20th season, Brady does not appear to be slowing down.

  1. I would be more worried about his arm, his passes last season lost some zip from years past. All the best to him this upcoming season.

  2. He said he wanted to be stronger for this season, and he’s a man of his word. 2019-20 should be interesting…

  3. Tom Brady will live and play forever. GOAT. Period.

  4. It’s never enough. Bernie Pollard’s recent comments are on his locker right now. Some people will never get it.

    lmao

    Keep making comments. We love it.

    You state that as if he’s some type of man of honor. Ask Bridget Moynihan or people involved in Spy or Deflate Gate. Ask Jimmy G? Honorable men don’t destroy evidence if they have nothing to hide.

    Great player,definitely. GOAT,perhaps.
    Honorable? Lol!!!

  6. Lance Armstrong and Barry Bonds also got stronger and faster at the end of their careers. Can’t really think of too many other examples of that happening.

  7. The fact that this is even worthy of talking about is hilarious. Even more so when I watched the video. I mean when everyone in the media says the best player of all time is Brady you don’t need to evaluate a hundredth of a second to prove anything unless its a mental edge or trying to motivate Tom. I’m not ripping on Tom saying that. He is a stud, but he also is the guy replacing another stud and that is how things go in the NFL.

  8. TB and Drew Brees are both remarkable athletes. I think we should have one of those 40-yard dash contests between the two of them. I have seen several videos from 2010 through 2017 in which Brees, who is much smaller than TB, has hit home runs at various celebrity softball games or other all-star game events. And, he hits them out — not just out of the temporary HR boundaries. I find it interesting that he bats left-handed and I wonder how or why that came about?

    Guess you missed the memo last week where he’s posted the 2nd fastest throw (61mph) of any active QB – and since 2008 only Josh Allen did one faster at 62mph. The only cliff is the one the salty mountain of hate’s tears have carved down every flank. Enjoy your upcoming salty season!

  10. Well, I couldn’t be more impressed if I knew the distance of the purported 61 mph football throw, or witnessed the laying out/measuring of the 40 yard course and had timed the ‘sprint’ myself.

  11. Brady will continue running after he retires from the NFL – running for public office.

  12. The Lance Armstrong of the NFL. The definition of HGH. Pat Fanboys call out Manning which is hilarious, it is blatantly obvious without any doubt with Brady and Guerrero and his fraud tb12 foundation

  14. The haters seem to be in their training camp too!
    Tired Deflategate takes, Bridget Moynihan?, weak arm, insecure? It looks like you guys are the ones falling off the cliff! To quote another Michigan Alum, “ Whose got it better than us?”

  15. Only in the NFL would anybody even look at a 40 yard time. Even in track, the only short distance that ever gets measured that is comparable is a 30 meter fly to determine maximum velocity. Many elite sprinters are just getting fully upright and nearing top speed at 40 yards out of the blocks.

    As for those claiming this is somehow proof of PED, I assure you that any 41yo guy who trains like Brady could run as fast if not faster. Even at 41, that is a slow time.

    You’re right. I saw a definite weakness in his arm as he was lifting that Super Bowl trophy

  19. Go watch Brady’s top plays from last yr, and guys like Romo marvelling at the 30 yrs lasers ‘2 yrd Tom’ was throwing during gms. Then come back and tell me about his arm strength. Good to see he’s as driven as ever.

  20. Four rings on one hand and two rings on the other. It would slow him down a bit. Dan Marino never had this issue.

  21. Ive been waiting 15 years for his decline. Im not holding my breath. Some guys just have it. Brady clearly has it. The tb12 method may not work for everyone, but clearly hes getting results.

    Did he forget how he lost to Brady in regular season? I guess lot of fans here believe Mahomes is an idiot.

  31. Can’t wait for the season to begin.

    It’s great that Pats fans think he’ll play at peak level for years. It will make things much more fun.

  32. LOL you haters talking about HGH and stuff are too funny. Have you seen 2000 Tom Brady lately? I mean it’s not hard to improve on that even at age 40. It’s not like he was a great athlete back then and now is even better. Just because his body was younger doesn’t mean he was stronger/faster, there are plenty of people that are in the best athletic shape of their lives at 35+, when they weren’t really training as hard or at all in their 20s.

    You are just silly. He broke up with Bridget BEFORE discovering she was pregnant. Check those facts. And has done the right thing by his son, and so has his wife.
    Jimmy G? If anything he’s glad to get traded, have his chance to start, and make more than Tom is currently earning. Destroying evidence? No, he destroyed his old phone after being told it was ok to do so. He’s a millionaire celebrity with a supermodel wife. Of course he doesn’t leave old phones out there to grab. If you can read, understand, and think for yourself, read the Wells report. READ IT ALL. And ask yourself why the NFL collected football inflation data all year, saying they would publish it, then at the end of the year make a mysterious statement, destroy all the data, and never publish it. Because cold wet footballs lose air pressure. Get a clue before commenting next time.

    Magic potions working instantly are easier for small minds to imagine than intelligent persons having consider over 20 years of facts.

    TB12 was tall, lanky, and awkward when it came to running at the time of the NFL Combine.
    More recently, TB12 has discovered good nutrition, stretching & flexibility, weight training and he has access to modern training equipment and methods.

    Its pretty obvious that TB12 didn’t do any modern physical training type of activities during High School or College.

    When someone starts at an extremely slow time and then puts in several years of modern training for the 1st time, it should be easy for someone with a working mind to understand that a person would then get slightly faster at running.

    That Armstrong comparison is only used by silly people looking to try to tarnish the accomplishments of TB12. If TB12 ever gets as fast as the fastest QB’s in the league…then I will believe that he is taking magic potions.

    Why would u assume that the post-Brady, post-BB Patriots will be worse than the Bills? There is simply no basis to conclude that. Well managed teams are always competitive – like the Steelers – and poorly run teams are always terrible – like the Bills have been for 20 years now.

  44. Tom Brady has played for roughly $100 mil below market value over the last 10 years. Is it because his wife is rich, the Pats are paying him under the table, or is he just a heck of a guy?

  45. Haters never disappoint, you guys are great! We get it. Brady is more successful than you, he is better looking than you , his wife is better looking than yours, he has a lot more money than you and is a better person than you. The hate is childish, but understandable

    I’m old enough to be Tom Brady’s father. If I threw for a month on a well-designed regimen, and then stretched for a week and-a-half while continuing to throw, I’m certain that I could throw in the low 50s mph IF the radar gun measured at, say 7-8 yards. At 20-25 yards, the velocity would be down noticeably, and, heaven permitting me a 40 yard heave, people would be looking for the 11 year-old who just threw the duck so they could return the ball. At that point, I’d be headed to the ER for a shoulder replacement, but I’d happily receive the anesthesia knowing that I threw a football 53 mph!

    Spygate – the Patriots success after being over punished not following a poorly worded memo and not moving a camera back 30 feet really shows how silly that was. NFL games are filmed and it is not against the rules. Zoom lenses make moving 30 feet back irrelevant.

    Deflategate – most people are capable of understanding that when the NFL has printed logs from Bradys phone and the 2 team owned phones that the NFL has 2 ways to see every text message sent between those 3 phones. The rest of the people still want to imagine that there was “evidence” that couldn’t be seen because a private phone was not handed over.

    Science has always said that there was no cheating. The NFL is still hiding the PSI data from the 2015 season because science can’t lie. There is the actual hidden evidence. Perhaps you should be looking in a different place for a dishonorable person.

  49. Meh,don’t care what science says as to the impact on the action itself. The question is, was the action committed?

    ————

    Good question. It has already been asked and answered. I have a feeling that you won’t believe me, so look it up. I am not a scientist. People much smarter than me figured it out.

    The balls for both teams lost similar pressure that night. They tested all of NE balls while Indy balls warmed up in the room, waiting to be tested. When they finally started testing Indy balls, they “ran out of time”. (Kid you not.)

    Anyways, since the pressure of all balls tested were similar, it was determined that NE did not let air out. If they had, the NE balls would have had much lower PSI than Indy.

    Scientists did these tests in the months following. Check it out.

  50. The 40 itself is a farce…

    Its a complete quick twitch distance, and its also subjective as the clock starts when the runner moves… completely unlike Track and field when you have to react after the gun sounds…and in football, when you react on the designated snap count.

    Its a made up “glory” event.

    The shuttle is WAY more indicitive of how fast a football player will be on the field than the 40 yard dash.

    ***************

    billsbackto81, I’m going to assume you would like to be factually correct, so please disabuse yourself of the notion that Brady left Moynahan in the middle of her pregnancy. Not true. They broke up before either one knew she was pregnant. He, Gisele Bundchen and Moynahan get along well and seem to have no issues among them. I’m sure you are relieved to hear you were misinformed as to this issue of honorability in Brady’s private life.

  52. I’m beginning to side with the Haters.

    Brady has only taken his team to four of the last five super bowls. And they only won 3 of the 4. That’s totally unacceptable. His demise is obvious, face the facts.

    ————————————————-
    You are correct, but they actually measures all of the Patriots football twice, while allowing the Colts footballs to warm up indoors.

    Plus the Colts footballs were probably higher PSI to start the game. Brady liked his at the low end of the legal range. Other QB’s wanted theirs higher PSI. Its a range not an exact number.

    The COLTs footballs were kept in a dry bag for most of the 1st half due to time of possession favoring the Pats. No water, and no wind chill. so they would not be as cold and would warm up faster. But the Colts footballs were still below regulation. Just not as low as the Patriots footballs. The PSI data from 2015 would have shown football from every team dropping PSI during cold/wet weather games. Goodell didn’t want to have to give back the million dollars or the 2 draft picks. Which is why that data has been hidden from football fans since 2015.

    Thank you for demonstrating that you truly have no clue about the matter. I am in my late 40’s and competitively throw the javelin at the national level. I assure you that the velocity of my throw in the last 10 meters is the same or greater than the 1st 10. Reduced throwing strength impact the velocity overall, and the maximum distance of the throw. There is no such thing as diminished velocity simply by throwing farther.

    Please enlighten us.

  58. I moved to Maine for a job. My boss was kind enough to take me out to dinner when I arrived. We talked football, and I remarked that he was lucky to have such a great quarterback playing for his team. He replied with something like “I don’t know, there were some times last year when he looked like he’d lost a bit.” That was not quite eight years ago.

  59. Let’s not make this into a big deal. Upon entering the league he was never into body conditioning. He’s a health nut now. So he shaved off about one tenth of a second from his combine days is not a surprise consider he’s been working on his football for years now. Another non-story but it sure makes it fun for the Max Kellerman of the world!

  60. I stopped watching the Olympics years ago because the Russians were cheating and everyone knew it. In fact, the Russians didn’t even care if everyone knew. They didn’t really try that hard to hide it. If they could cheat and get away with it, who cares what everyone else thinks. Brady is the same way. He hasn’t been kicked out of the league yet, and he’s been caught cheating numerous times. That’s just another reason why Joe Montana is far and away the greatest player to ever play the game. There’s a huge gap between Joe and everyone else.

    If you or anyone else requires a PHD to determine what you feel is honorable then you have bigger problems than being a Brady fanboy. Common decency and honor are character traits instilled from proper upbringing, not a diploma.

    You keep singing the same tune, without answering my question. That tells me a lot.

    But if you don’t think Tom Brady is an honorable man, there must be VERY few players in the NFL that you actually like. Unless your value system is, shall we say, askew.

  63. At this point, anyone that doesn’t recognize Brady as the GOAT is in the vast minority. I think all the winning may have caused emotion problems for many people.

  64. The guy throwing the javelin competitively – that is awesome and inspiring!! I’m guessing that the aerodynamics may be different – a football will lose rpms. Does a javelin rotate? I’m GUESSING no. This I know – my decrepit football fastball could break a nose at 7 or 8 yards. At the same arc, my 30 yard throw could not.

  65. The Patriots are impressive, as sporting franchises go. Not quite comparable to the success of the New York Yankees but baseball has had a longer run.

    The Patriots fans, though, are most impressive. They are a clever lot. Their skill at repartee is deserving of recognition as the GOAT Fanatics. They have given me many laughs at the expense of THE HATERS, of course.

    Still, I am reminded of another impressive lot: circus fleas. Not quite up to the task of fanatic repartee but just as entertaining as the games played by Patriots and Yankees!

    Unlike human athletes fleas typically live only for a few months and are not trained for their sport. Fleas are observed to see if they have a predisposition for jumping or walking. Reminds me of scouts at the Combine. Once sorted, fleas are harnessed by carefully wrapping a thin gold wire around their neck. Without a doubt, circus fleas have a tougher act than football or baseball players.

    Once in the harness, the fleas usually stay in it for life. No retirement from the sport. The harnesses are attached to the props and the strong legs of the flea allow them to move objects significantly larger than themselves. Imagine a giant flea playing offensive guard or tackle.

    Jumping fleas are used for kicking small lightweight balls. Special teams are the forte of circus fleas. They are carefully given a ball; when they try to jump away (which is not possible because of the harness), they shoot the ball instead. Running fleas can pull small carts and vehicles or rotate a Ferris wheel. Now that is impressive!

  66. He is off the chain. Haters want to hate him. I respect him as the best QB I havew ever seen in my lifetime. I mean come on. If you turn the TV to another channel when this guy is on the field then turn in your football card. I’m not a Pats fan but this 6th round draft pick is the GOAT. Love him/ Hate him… he is who he is. A hired gun and a maniac on game day.

  67. “Too bad a fault line doesn’t run under boston”

    Well fortunately something hitting Boston would be unlikely to affect the Patriots the way you are hoping.

    But if it makes you feel any better there are plenty of Patriot fans in SoCal that were affected by the earthquake.

  68. So his speed has slightly increased.

    Now he needs to learn how to catch.

    If he could catch we would have won 4 super bowls in 5 years instead of only 3.

    I hope Bill is working on his catching ability in practice.

  69. Tom’s great but if he doesn’t get the protection things will deteriorate quickly. The young guys have trouble getting hit over and over again so protecting him will be the key.

    It’s amazing what PEDs can do.
    ——————————-
    When Brady takes time off to run for USA in the Olympics you can post that without sounding silly.
    A guy who never trained for speed…later spends several years while being assisted by personal trainers. That person then gets slightly faster. Not amazing at all.

  71. Tom Brady the Lance Armstrong of the NFL. It’s becoming more obvious. Faster at 42 than 21……ya he is not juicing. Only Pats fanboys believe that crap….but they are not the brightest bulbs on the circuit.

    The guy throwing the javelin competitively – that is awesome and inspiring!! I’m guessing that the aerodynamics may be different – a football will lose rpms. Does a javelin rotate? I’m GUESSING no. This I know – my decrepit football fastball could break a nose at 7 or 8 yards. At the same arc, my 30 yard throw could not.
    ——————-
    Since you asked, yes a properly thrown javelin rotates, but not like a football does because the throwing motion is different and hand grip is (usually) more like fastball in baseball. Footballs are intended to be caught. Javelins, not so much.

    It is however comical that you think that you can’t break someone’s nose on a longer football throw than a shorter one simply because of the arc of the throw. Please attempt this at home with a 40 yard throw and when you recover, post results here.

  73. Patriot hater is so silly.
    A guy spends several years working with personal trainers while following a very strict diet. That person can then run 40 yards in 5.17 seconds. Years before that same person ran 40 yards without any training in 5.28 seconds.

    The silly people now want to believe that a .11 seconds improvement after years of training is evidence of someone using PED’s. Tom Brady’s improved time is still not as fast as Vince Wilfork’s 5.08 second time. Not to mention all the differences with location, the shoes, the timer etc…which could easily account for a .11 second difference.

    Athletes often have different 40 times from different times or days or locations. I guess any athlete that didn’t always run the same 40 time took PED’s to run on the faster day if there is a .11 second difference.

    If Brady is so great, why doesnt he have a winning record against Denver?

    Oh geez 🙄 you got him there

    ———————————————-
    Maybe the NFL should have Denver play all their games in other stadiums.
    Forcing visiting teams to have to play a mile above sea level was a bad idea from day one.

    Brady already has a large collection of rings so he obviously doesn’t need that change, but it may help some of the other teams in the future.

  76. It is however comical that you think that you can’t break someone’s nose on a longer football throw than a shorter one simply because of the arc of the throw.
    ———————————————————————————————————————————————————-
    My knowledge of physics is unquestionably comical – shame on me. I suspected that ‘arc’ was wrong, but I was hoping. What I meant to convey was that my 7-8 yd throw would be a fastball capable of breaking a nose. My longer throw – if it hit someone’s nose with the same surface of the ball on the same plane – fingers crossed! – would be less likely to because the ball was slowing down.

    Translation:

    He can’t be this good for 20 years! There must be something illegal going on! He keeps beating my team!

  78. I get a kick out of the sports media when it comes to Brady and Brees, primarily because a bunch of years ago they were promoting the “fact” that due to sports medicine, better training and to some degree, evolution, our athletes will begin to play far longer than there predecessors.

    We are now seeing what science predicted, but now the media is trying to sell that older athletes have an expiration date, that sports medicine/science they positively reported on a few years ago was a bunch of hooey (their own fake news) and it is usually the most successful athletes they prey upon. Brady and Brees, Brees and Brady, I love watching them both and hope they play into their fifties making most sports pundits look like fools. If not for serious injury, Peyton would probably still be in the mix.

    So when did sports science and evolution suddenly become voodoo science and snake oil?

  79. mlhigh says:

    Since you imply that Brady is not so great due to his record against the Broncos, I must ask what the Bronco’s record is against all of their NFL opponents? To extend that, are the Broncos even in any sort of conversation about who is the best even with multible QBs and great ones at that?

    The measure of greatness in any sport is just how well you do against your opponents as a whole, is not defined by a single player, it is defined by team. Sorry about your luck, but your Broncos, as great of a team they’ve been, is not even close to the Patriots or Steelers…I’ll lets others fill in the other list of consistently better teams.

    I’d love to see the petri dish of illegal substances he’s on
    ———————————————————–
    Yea…because breaking NFL rules while subjecting his mind and body to multiple illegal substances and all the horrible side effects would be worth Brady gaining a 10th of a second while running a 40 yard dash. While still being slower than Vince Wilfork.

    People must only read the headlines before posting and then assume that Brady is now going to be running away from cornerbacks and safety’s in the open field because of illegal potions. I hope the haters are right. Belichick loves players who can contribute on special teams. Maybe we will see Brady returning punts and or kickoffs for touchdowns this season.

    The Lance Armstrong of the NFL. The definition of HGH. Pat Fanboys call out Manning which is hilarious, it is blatantly obvious without any doubt with Brady and Guerrero and his fraud tb12 foundation

    Yes, because Brady pays off the NFL to skip the PED tests.

    Brady is still the slowest QB in the NFL. And now some salty haters want to compare him to a guy that was fast enough to win the Tour De France. And now its some grand conspiracy with people getting paid off. Do you have any idea how silly you sound?

  84. Great, but when is the last time he has run 40 + yards? When you cheat, like ALL of Boston’s teams have, who cares?

    Oh yeah, bye-bye rad sox
