Tom Brady’s legendary career has seen many amazing accomplishments, but news that he played all last season with a fully torn MCL only adds more luster to the future Hall of Famer’s resume.

Brady was already under the microscope by joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year after spending 20 seasons with the New England Patriots. At the age of 43, he then went on to lead the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl title.

Playing with pain has long been a part of the NFL mindset, but managing to compete with such a severe MCL injury at an advanced age makes what Brady did even more stunning.

Brady didn’t miss any games during the chaotic 2020 season, and finished the year by throwing for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns. Despite putting the ball up 610 times during the regular season, he was picked off only 12 times.

After undergoing surgery to correct his injury, Brady may be an even more effective weapon for the Bucs, with only Father Time the main roadblock in his future.
