Tom Brady signed a two-year deal with Tampa Bay last month, which would have him playing until he's 44, but he's always said he wants to play until he's 45.

In fact, appearing on Dale & Keefe Monday, ESPN's Ian O'Connor believes Brady could play even longer than that.

“I do think he will have a successful run (in Tampa Bay)," he said. "I do think he’s got a lot of football left in him. In fact, I had a phone conversation with him of about an hour 2-3 years ago where we were talking about Tom Brady playing until age 46, 47, maybe even 48. I don’t think he’s stopping at 45, as long as he’s — I really don’t.

"I never thought he was going to stop at 45. I think he has four or five left and I think he will play a fairly high level of football for Tampa Bay.”

O'Connor wrote a long piece on Sunday detailing Brady's move to Tampa and also included a line from a friend of Brady which said he was "Belichick'd out."
