New England Patriots QB Tom Brady on CBS: 'I understand the risks'

At 40 years old, Tom Brady headed into his 18th season with the New England Patriots having won his fifth Super Bowl title and widely considered to be the greatest quarterback of all time by his peers. "I mean, I understand the risks that, you know, come with the physical nature of our game".

"I'm driving to work the next day (thinking) who was that, let's see the report", Payton said.

O'Donnell asks Brady what impact studies about concussions will have on the NFL. "It was good to get a chance to meet and visit with a player like that".

"I don't worry about them, no", Brady tells O'Donnell about concussions.

During the interview, Brady opens up about what life is like at home with his wife and kids, his training and diet program, his business partner and body coach Alex Guerrero, and his new book, The TB12 Method, which is published by Simon & Schuster, a division of CBS.

The Padma Vibhushan recipient is the only Air Force officer to have been promoted to a five-star rank, according to the newspaper. After the death of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw in 2008, he became the only living Indian military officer with a five-star rank.

"I would say I'm faster now and quicker now than, you know, when I first started playing football", Brady told O'Donnell.

Brady's wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, had said in a May interview that the quarterback has had unreported concussions and she anxious about his long-term health. "He has concussions pretty much every". They do a good job with their offense which means we have to do a real good job with our offense. Half of the group is new starters, all new linebackers, a lot of speed at the positons, a faster, [more] athletic team probably than what they had a year ago. He does have concussions. "That could not be healthy for you".

A joint NFL and players' union investigation found this week there was no evidence that Brady or the team had failed to follow the league's policies or procedures on concussions.

Brady was never officially documented with a concussion in 2016. League spokesperson Brian McCarthy said Brady had released his records for review as part of the process. I really don't think that's anybody's business, what happened a year ago.

I think anytime you start a season and especially when you start a season in the matter in which we did, there's a race and a sense of urgency to get better and one of the areas that we need to continue to get better at is our communication and I think especially on the back end of the defense.
