Tom Brady: "I want to play a long time"

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reveals that he wants to continue playing in the NFL for a "long time" despite his side drafting his potential successor in the NFL Draft.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has admitted that he wants to continue playing in the NFL for a "long time".

The Patriots selected Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft with the possibility of being the 36-year-old's successor when his contract expires in 2017.

However, Brady is adamant that he wants to continue playing despite his advancing years.

"There's nothing that can wake me up at 5 o'clock in the morning on a Thursday morning in May like getting ready for a day of football," Brady told TheMMQB.com. "I want to play a long time.

"There's nothing I like doing that's close to football. What'll I do when I'm done playing? I don't know, but I know it won't be nearly as fun.

"I can tell you neither me nor Peyton [Manning] will probably be very far from the game of football when we're done."

Brady threw for 4,343 yards along with 25 touchdowns to 11 interceptions in the 2013 season.
