Tom Brady joined Michael Strahan to discuss a number of topics on Monday, including Tom vs. Time and the upcoming sixth and final episode.

Although Brady still appears far from retiring as a football player, Strahan asked him how much his work-life balance would factor into his decision to retire when the time finally comes. At some point, the balance between football and family could prove too challenging for him. (That part begins at about 3:06.)

“That will be a big part of it,” said Brady. “You can’t make decisions, necessarily, just for yourself, and I think that’s one thing I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older. There’s collateral effects to every decision that I make. I have a wife that aspires to be a lot of things and she travels a lot. My oldest son lives here in New York. [I have] three kids and you’re just always trying to juggle and you want to be there for them. … But you also realize the level of commitment it takes to give as much as you can to the team that needs you.”

“Sometimes it gets out of balance and sometimes you have to bring it back to a point where it feels great for everyone involved.”

Brady also spoke about the disappointment of losing Super Bowl LII to the Eagles, the differences in his approach to the season now as opposed to when he was younger, and his continued motivation to play at a high level past age 40. They also take a look at an exclusive clip from episode 6 of Tom vs. Time, which you can watch in the video above.
