Until Wednesday morning, anyway, when Brady's wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, revealed in a CBS interview that he's also suffered multiple concussions. "He had pretty much concussions every, I mean we don't talk about, but he does have concussions". In her answer, she revealed that Brady suffered a concussion a year ago that was not reported by the Patriots.
"I think the thing is, Skip - and I know the NFL's concussion policy is going to come under a lot of criticism - but it's different".
Brady and Bundchen have been married since 2009. "We don't talk about it, but he does have concussions". She even said he has dealt with head injuries, including one last season.
On this side of the Atlantic, a spotlight has recently been shone on the issue of head injuries in sports such as rugby and football.. And I want him to be happy.
While the NFL a year ago announced a $100 million plan to develop new technology and increase research into the effects of head injuries, the league was criticized frequently for its handling of players.
"You know, I just have to say as a wife, I'm a little bit, its, as you know, it's not the most like, let's say, un-aggressive sport, right?"
By winning his fifth NFL title at the age of 39 - leading the biggest Super Bowl comeback in history - Brady has already defied age and cemented himself among the league's all-time greats. "And I said, 'Too bad, babe, I'm having too much fun right now'".
Brady, who did not miss any games due to injury in 2016 but sat out the first four contests due to an National Football League suspension, said back in February that Bündchen would have him retire if she had things her way.
In his ESPN interview, Brady acknowledged that his wife would play a role in his decision to eventually retire. "Hopefully she never says, 'Look, this has to be it, '" Brady told O'Connor ".
