Steve DeBerg holds the NFL record for the oldest quarterback ever to start a regular-season game. DeBerg was 44 years, 279 days old when he started for the Falcons against the Jets on Oct. 25, 1998.

DeBerg’s record, though, isn’t expected to stand more than another season.

Tom Brady turns 44 in August and has said he expects to play through the 2022 season when his contract expires. Brady’s personal trainer, Alex Guerrero, said on The Adam Schefter Podcast this week that two more seasons is his expectation for Brady as well.

“I think the biggest accomplishment from me will come probably if we make it through age 45 because that’s what his goal was,” Guerrero told Schefter, via Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald. “That will probably be the proudest moment for me, to say, ‘Hey, we actually did it.’ I know from my perspective that I want to honor my promise to him in helping him with his goal. If his goal changes, no problem. If he says, ‘Hey, I think I’m going to call it a day,’ then great. No problem. I will 100 percent support that.

“But in my mind, I’m trying to prepare him to be able to do that. I thought about this year two years ago. I try to keep his body three years ahead of where we’re going to be. I’m thinking about not just next year, but, ‘What if he feels so good at 45 he wants to play to 46?’ I don’t know, so I’d better plan. I better plan to think about how I need to get his body prepared for 46 or 47. I don’t know.”

Guerrero, Brady’s business partner at TB12, said he’s not “super strict” about Brady’s plant-based diet.

“We’re not like that,” Guerrero said. “We’re very balanced. We do things to kind of help our body stay in balance all the time. So if we feel the need to heat up a pizza and eat a pizza, we’re going to do it. If he needs to have a cheeseburger, we’re going to do it.”

  1. the only obstacles to two more years will be wifey G, father time and those unfortunate n pesky but wot turns out to be a major soft tissue or ligament injury with a lengthy recovery time eating up in season career time, myself one more superbowl victory should it be possible and just call it a day as you’ve already had a fantastic career then go enjoy some avocado beer

  2. There was an article the other day about the Patriots not doing anything special for Brady when he returns to Foxborough in October.

    I wish someone would tell Kraft that this will be the last time the Patriots fans get to see Brady play at Gillette.

  3. Everyone should remember what these guys are doing. Someday, you’ll be able to look back and say “I remember Brady before he became the new Armstrong/Balco poster boy”.

  4. Alex Guerrero falsely presented himself as a doctor and claiming to be able to cure cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and Parkinson’s disease using a dietary supplement called “Supreme Greens.

    He later admitted that all these claims were lies.

    There is at least one denier that still believes these claims. Tom Brady

  5. “We’re not like that,” Guerrero said. “We’re very balanced. We do things to kind of help our body stay in balance all the time. So if we feel the need to heat up a pizza and eat a pizza, we’re going to do it. If he needs to have a cheeseburger, we’re going to do it.”

    Nice to see Tom shares his body with his trainer. Hell of a guy.

  6. Whether Brady plays for 2 or 3 more years or whatever it ends up being, it’s time for HOF president David Baker to start getting quotes from architects. They are going to have to add a new wing to hold all of Brady’s accomplishments.

  7. The way Tampa is set up they have a solid 3 years before the team starts breaking apart because of contracts and contract extensions. I can’t see Brady leave when he knows he can have another good season.My bet is 3 years left and he hangs up cleats.

  8. Tom is probably very aware that an in season injury could end this whole thing, which is why you see him duck and chuck now. A pick is a pick and you can come back from that. Not so much for injuries at 44, on a field filled with athletic freaks. You can only taunt the bull so much before you get gored. He’s definitely operating with an abundance of caution now, but still can play and manage the game and the other players well enough to get to the top of the mountain. There is no competition in the division and the best young QB’s are in the AFC. Rodgers may end up in Denver soon as well, so the road to the Super Bowl will likely go through Tampa in the NFC. Brady is looking good for a couple of years. Unless he forgets to duck.
