Like it or not, Tom Brady just continues to age like a fine wine. Brady’s list of accolades doesn’t even seem possible when you list them off.
- Seven Super Bowl Rings
- 15 Pro Bowl selections
- Five Super Bowl MVP Awards
- Three-time AP and PFWA MVP Award Winner
- NFL’s All-Time leader in passing yards
- All-Time leader in passing touchdowns
- All-Time leader in completions
The reality is that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is inarguable as the greatest quarterback of all-time. What’s crazier is that he doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. Just last season, at 44 years old, Brady once again made the Pro Bowl after throwing for a career-high 5,316 yards, 43 touchdowns and just four interceptions.
Brady turned 45 on Tuesday and Twitter was full of fans, media and fellow players giving him his flowers.

Of course, there are those who aren’t particularly big fans of Brady. Which is understandable. But those birthday tributes were a little bit more tongue-in-cheek.

Brady’s 45th birthday comes just one day after he was implicated in a tampering scheme by the Miami Dolphins that cost the team two draft picks and a whole lot of money. But Brady did not face any penalty.
Instead, he’s preparing for the first game of the Buccaneers’ season. Tampa Bay begins the regular season on the road against a beleaguered Dallas Cowboys team.
