NFL Players Association to Look Into Gisele's Claim About Tom Brady's 'Concussions' Last Season
The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) plans to look into claims by Gisele Bundchen that his husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, suffered a concussion in 2016.
When reached by celebrity website TMZ, the NFLPA said that it has no official statement "but we are looking into" Bundchen's claim.
Bundchen made the controversial remark during a CBS This Morning interview with Charles Rose, per NFL.com report.
"I mean, he has concussions pretty much. We don't talk about it, but he does have concussions," Bundchen told Rose. "I don't really think it's a healthy thing for your body to go through, do that kind of aggression all the time, that can not be healthy for you".
The NFL has yet to issue a statement on Bundchen's pronouncement while the Patriots declined to comment when asked by NFL.com. According to rules, NFL teams are required to report player injuries.
Since 2003, Brady hasn't been listed on a Patriots injury report with a concussion. Patriots beat writer Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal said Brady was reported to have thigh, knee and ankle injuries but not concussion.
After serving a four-game suspension due to the Deflategate scandal, Brady played all of the Patriots' remaining games as he led them to the Super Bowl victory. Brady threw for 3,554 yards, 28 touchdowns with two interceptions in the regular season.
Brady was named Super Bowl LI MVP after sparking the Patriots' comeback from a 25-point deficit en route to a 34-28 overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons for his fifth Lombardi Trophy.
Earlier, Brady said retirement is far from his mind at the moment, claiming he plans to play until he's 45 years old if his body allows him.
"I always said my mid-40s," Brady said when asked about retirement. "Naturally that means around 45. If I get there and I still feel like I do today, I don't see why I wouldn't want to continue."
