Legendary NFL quarterback Tom Brady is at a 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 playing football, Brady would be fine if his son wanted to pursue something else.
Brady went on NFL Live to talk about his son playing football.
He said that he would “choose not” for his son to play football because it would place unfair expectations on him.

There’s no doubt that many will expect Brady’s son to follow in his father’s footsteps.
But it is not fair to compare any player with Brady’s career.
It is highly unlikely that he will be able to replicate the success or longevity that Brady has had in his career.
Brady mentioned how he would support all of his children in whatever path they choose.
You have to have extreme toughness to withstand the punishment NFL players take year after year.
It’s understandable that Brady doesn’t want to see his son deal with this.
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 father to learn from and has most likely developed a love for the sport just like his father.
But there is no doubt that he will have to deal with skyrocketing expectations.
That’s the price of having a father who is considered a goat.
