Buccaneers QB Super Bowl champion Tom Brady turns 45 today

While Tom Brady's birthday isn't yet a NFL occasion - trust that the association will send off "Tom Brady Training Camp Day" where fans can pet goats and eat cake - it's basically as close as any name day comes.

Conceived Aug. 3, 1977, in San Mateo, California, Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. keeps obliterating NFL records, especially those age-related ones. Father Time grates his teeth with each snap Brady takes, ridiculing the previous' ideal record.

At the point when Brady finishes his most memorable pass in Week 1, the Bucs QB will join Hall of Famer George Blanda as the main players to have a passing yard at age 45 or more in NFL history. Moreover, with one rush yard or one gathering, Brady would be the principal player in NFL history with a rush yard or gathering at age 45 or more seasoned.
