For years, there have been reports about a planned preseason National Football League game that will be played in China, but those plans have yet to come to fruition.

With his career coming closer to a close, Brady wants a chance to play that game finally.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady spent his Father's Day in a weird spot, hanging out at the Great Wall of China and throwing passes along one of the Great Wonders of the World.

"We had an opportunity, I think, 10 years ago and my team was going to play here", Brady said.

Brady is headed to Shanghai on Tuesday and will visit Tokyo on Wednesday, according to ESPN.

"I am excited about the opportunity to be able to connect with the people in China and Japan, experience the incredible culture and share my love for the game with my fans", he said.

Before heading down to Shanghai, apparently to tour the scenic Under Armor store here.

The Patriots will open up their season on Thursday, Sept. 7 when they host the Kansas City Chiefs at 8:30 p.m. ET.
