Brady: Concussions part of 'the physical nature of our game'

Back in May, Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, said that the seasoned signal caller had sustained unreported concussions and that she was anxious about her husband's longterm health.

While Gisele Bundchen worries about the long-term health of her husband, Tom Brady doesn't fear for the future.

Now 40, Brady repeated his desire to continue playing until his is 45 - something no non-kicker has done in modern National Football League history. "I mean, I understand the risks that, you know, come with.the physical nature of our game". "I mean, we go to bed in the same bed every night, so I think she knows when I'm sore, she knows when I'm exhausted, she knows when I get hit".

ESPN's Adam Schefter expects New England Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to be sticking around after this season.

"I'm not oblivious to them", Brady told CBS Sunday Morning.

"I do want to go out on my terms", Brady said.

His strategy, he tells O'Donnell, is focusing on something he calls "pliability", which he says is lengthening and softening of muscles.

Brady discusses his diet program; his business partner and body coach, Alex Guerrero; and the new book, "The TB12 Method", aimed at readers looking for a healthier lifestyle.

"I do want to go out on my terms", Brady tells O'Donnell. He says the system has made him quicker now than when he started playing football.

Brady has been pretty consistent with his answers whenever he is asked this question, saying things like he has "got a lot of good football left", in recent years. The league this year agreed to pay as much as $1 billion to former players who have been diagnosed with post-concussion symptoms that could include the degenerative brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy. I don't really think it's a healthy thing for your body to go through like, through that kind of aggression like, all the time - that can not be healthy for you, right?
