Buccaneers QB Tom Brady Turns 45 Today.. While Tom Brady’s birthday is not yet an NFL holiday — wait 10 years for the league to launch “Tom Brady Training Camp Day” where fans can pet goats and eat cake — it’s as close as any name day comes.
Born Aug. 3, 1977, in San Mateo, California, Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. continues destroying NFL records, particularly those age-related ones. Father Time grinds his teeth with every snap Brady takes, lampooning the former’s perfect record.
When Brady completes his first pass in Week 1, the Bucs QB will join Hall of Famer George Blanda as the only players to have a passing yard at age 45-plus in NFL history. Likewise, with one rush yard or one reception, Brady would be the first player in NFL history with a rush yard or reception at age 45 or older.
