VIDEO: Matt Ryan Explains What Tom Brady Taught Him About NFL Longevity

Because he's just THAT dude, Tom Brady has somehow managed to avoid the ever-prevalent clutches of Father Time, hoisting the Lombardi Trophy for a SIXTH time in 2019 at the age of 41. Therefore, every NFL player would be wise to seek the advice of the ageless gun-slinger to learn the secrets of enjoying a nearly 20-year career in the league. Well, Atlanta's Matt Ryan did just that, and recently revealed the wise words that the 14-time Pro-Bowler echoed to him nearly a decade ago in 2009 when the Falcons and Patriots held joint practices.

What if we told you that Matty Ice hasn't missed a single game since receiving that advice from TB12? The four-time Pro Bowler and former MVP has appeared in 147 consecutive games for the Falcons, which stands as one of the most longest streaks in the NFL. Among others.

Is there anything that Brady can't do? We obviously can't credit him for Ryan's exceptional durability, but it would be irresponsible to ignore the coincidence out of hand.

Tom holds all the secrets at this point, and we'd advise any young quarterback in the league to follow his foolproof formula at combating Father Time. Just take a look at Ryan's remarkable resume.
