NFL Awards: Tom Brady named 2017 NFL MVP

Share

Tom Brady made it clear last offseason that he plans to play until he's 45 years old, but Gisele Bundchen has admitted that she's been trying to get Brady to retire, and the couple may have finally struck a deal.

Brady won the 2018 NFL MVP Award Saturday night, making him the oldest player to ever take home MVP honors in any of the four major sports.

Brady is now a three-time NFL MVP, having previously won in 2007 and 2010. Brady proceeded to go on one of the most epic tears for an offensive player in MI history and topped it off with what could be the school's greatest 3-game performance by a quarterback.

Brady led the National Football League in passing yards in 2017, throwing for 4,577 yards alongside 32 touchdowns, 8 interceptions and a 102.8 passer rating en route to leading New England to its ninth consecutive division title. He's the fifth straight quarterback to win. Only rivaled by Todd Gurley and Carson Wentz (before he tore his ACL), Brady had a relatively easy journey to the award. Brady, at the time of the award, was a shade under 40 years and six months old.

Brady overcame that adversity by linking up with tight end Rob Gronkowski, wideouts Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola and a host of running backs, including Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead and Super Bowl LI hero James White.

The greatest quarterback of the modern era continues to make the MI faithful proud as the former Wolverine is set to compete for his 6th career National Football League championship in Super Bowl LII. He ranked among the top five quarterbacks in touchdown passes, yards per pass, and QB rating.
