New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady finally spoke about his wife’s claim that he suffered a concussion last season but wasn’t reported by the team. However, Brady’s answer did not directly respond to the question if he sustained a concussion, as claimed by his wife, Gisele Bundchen last May.

In an interview, when Kevin Negandhi of ESPN asked Brady about his wife’s claim, the quarterback delivered a vague response, saying Bundchen “is there every day.” Because they share the same bed, Brady said her wife is aware if he’s sore, tired and if he gets hit.

The quarterback added that his wife knows how he takes care of himself well. “She's a very concerned wife and very loving,” said Brady. Brady’s answer did not directly address her wife’s allegation and did not confirm if he really had a concussion last season.

In Super Bowl LI, the quarterback led the Patriots to an improbable comeback from a 28-3 deficit en route to a 34-28 win and their fifth NFL crown. In that game, Brady completed 43 of 62 passes for 466 yards and two touchdowns with an interception, earning him MVP honors.

Bundchen revealed Brady’s concussion in TV interview

Six weeks ago, Bundchen revealed that Brady suffered "concussions" in 2016. The revelation alarmed both the league and the NFL Players Association as Brady had no record of a concussion last season.

Brady’s agent, Don Yee, vehemently denied that his client suffered a concussion.

After an extensive search, the NFL also cleared the signal-caller, saying it has no record indicating that Brady sustained any form of head injury or concussion. The league also said it has no record of Brady “exhibiting or complaining of concussion symptoms." Based on the record, the Patriots injury list did not contain any concussion report on Brady since 2003.

However, he was mentioned to have thigh, knee and ankle injuries in previous injury reports.

Will Brady retire after next season?

Entering his 18th season as quarterback for the Patriots, the 39-year-old quarterback declared that he plans to play until he’s 45 years old. However, one AFC coach is convinced that this will be Brady’s last year.

The coach based his pronouncement on the Patriots’ decision to keep backup Jimmy Garoppolo despite receiving a deluge of offers from quarterback-needy squads before the 2017 NFL Draft. The Cleveland Browns even offered the No. 12 pick for Garoppolo on Draft Day, but the Patriots turned it down despite having no first- or second-round picks in the 2017 NFL Draft.
