While Tom Brady has said he wants to play until he's 45 and his contract runs through next season, there's a chance this is the 44-year-old's final NFL season.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Jeff Darlington, Brady remains noncommittal to playing beyond this season and playing in 2022 is "currently far from a given."

Brady is expected to take a month or longer after the season "to assess how he feels physically and mentally while also gauging his family's desires."

How the Buccaneers end this season could also impact the decision. If Brady wins another Super Bowl, it would likely make it easier for the quarterback to walk away.

The report notes Brady is happy with Tampa Bay and the organization is happy with him.

Brady threw for 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns this season.

Tampa Bay will host the Rams Sunday afternoon in the NFC divisional round.
