MINNEAPOLIS -- Since Tom Brady is 40 years old, there will always be rumors he won't be playing the next season and this week has been no different, but appearing on the Westwood One pregame show with Jim Gray prior to Super Bowl LII, Brady confirmed he will be on the field next season.

"Yeah, you’re going to see me playing football next year," he said. "I don’t envision not playing. You’re at the end of the race but you’ve got your biggest mountain to climb right at the end. Hopefully all the lessons we’ve learned have allowed us to be at our very best for this moment and that’s what it’s going to take and that’s what we’re prepared for and that’s what I go out and expect our team to do."

The quarterback also said he's dedicating this game to his dad for all that he went through last year with keeping the family together as his mother battled cancer.

"It would mean a lot." he said. "My dad is my biggest supporter, the greatest man I have ever known. He taught me so much. He’s been just a wonderful influence in my life. He’s there every step of the way. My dad loves sports and we’ve been little traveling companions since I was in high school and he’s a wonderful, wonderful man and I love him with all my heart.  I’m happy he’s going to be here, I know he’s going to be nervous as hell, but that’s what it is when you’re in these games and hopefully I can go make him proud."

Brady is going for his sixth Super Bowl win Sunday night.
