Tom Brady is regarded as the greatest quarterback of all-time by many NFL analysts. He now has 7 Super Bowl rings. His latest came at age 43 after beating the Kansas City Chiefs during Super Bowl LV on a different team for the first time in his career. Brady has more accolades than one cant count and it isn’t stopping any time soon.
