Though Brady is now 42-years-old, he's still a top-tier NFL quarterback. He led the Patriots to six Super Bowl wins, including one as recently as 2018. He shouldn't have trouble finding a new team, though it comes as a surprise to many that Brady will for the first time leave the organization that drafted him in 2000.
Brady has been married to his wife, model and actress Gisele Bündchen, since 2009. Together they have a son and a daughter.
