Tom Brady Defends Andrew Luck’s Decision to Retire, “It’s His Life”
Tom Brady is clapping back at the Andrew Luck haters — saying, “It’s his life. Everyone has the right to choose what they want to do.”
Luck was showered in boos from Colts fans on Saturday who were pissed at the 29-year-old for retiring just 2 weeks before the season.
Some ex-NFL players and reporters have also trashed Luck — essentially saying he’s screwing over his teammates, coaches and fans.
But, Tom Brady ain’t hearing that crap … essentially defending Luck during his weekly appearance on “The Greg Hill Show” on WEEI.
“Everybody wishes they could be healthy all the time,” Brady said … “It is a contact sport and he’s certainly had his fair share of injuries, so guys retire at different times.”
Don’t worry, Tom ain’t going anywhere … the 42-year-old QB made it clear he wants to keep playing as long as he can — and says his family, friends, teammates and trainer are behind him all the way.
“It feels great when you have that support because a football season is like a marathon. There’s moments where it is very challenging whether it’s physically, emotionally, or mentally — you need somebody to help you push through the hard parts because it’s not all easy.”
Brady added, “It’s a great challenge, but it is very rewarding when you meet the challenge, too.”
