Gisele Bundchen Wants Tom Brady to Retire, But He Won't  

There was a rumor going around this week that GISELE BUNDCHEN was "begging" TOM BRADY to go out on top and retire.

Well, Brady is basically CONFIRMING it.  He says, quote, "If it was up to my wife, she would have me retire today.  She told me that last night three times.  And I said, 'Too bad, babe, I'm having too much fun right now.'"

Brady is 39 years old and he's the oldest starting quarterback in the league. There have been quarterbacks play into their 40s such as Brett Favre, and Doug Flutie, but it isn't very common, especially in the modern NFL.

He hopes to play for another five years or so, which sounds like a pipe-dream.  But then again, he looked like he was still in the middle of his prime in the Super Bowl.
