Tom Brady has said he hopes to continue playing until he's 45 but he admits that the career of a player can go downhill quickly.

"Well, I never want to be a detriment to the team," Brady admitted to reporters on Monday. "So I think for me, as long as I'm playing at a high level and I make the commitment to take care of myself year-round, I'll continue to play.

"So I don't know, things change quickly. Anything can happen, but obviously I want to keep playing. I love playing. I just love playing for the Patriots."
