Legendary NFL quarterback Tom Brady is at the point in his life where his kids are playing sports.
He has a son who plays football and is a quarterback.
But after spending most of his life in football, Brady would be fine if his son chose to do something else.
Brady took to NFL Live to talk about his son playing football.
He said he “wouldn’t choose” his son to play football due to the unfair expectations that would be placed on him.

There’s no doubt that many people would expect Brady’s son to follow in his father’s footsteps.
But comparing any player to Brady’s career isn’t fair.
It is highly unlikely that he can repeat the success or longevity that Brady has had in his career.
Brady mentioned how he will support all of his children in whatever path they choose.
You have to have extreme tenacity to submit to the punishment that NFL players suffer year after year.
It makes sense that Brady doesn’t want his son to deal with it.
More than anything, Brady just wants his kids to find something they love to do.
It will be interesting to see if Brady’s son decides to continue playing football.
He certainly has a great dad to learn from and most likely developed a love for the game like his dad.
But there is no doubt that he will face exorbitant expectations.
This is the price of having a father who is considered the GOAT.
