Bill Belichick won't rule out the possibility of Tom Brady extending his career another six years.

Appearing on WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show" on Monday, the New England Patriots head coach was asked to weigh in on his former quarterback potentially playing until he's 50 years old.

"I'm sure Tom would know better than anybody, so if anybody can do it, it's him," Belichick said.

The 44-year-old Brady acknowledged in June that playing until 50 is "a long time," but he sounded more open to the idea in a recent video with teammate Rob Gronkowski.

"I don't find it so difficult," Brady said when asked by Gronkowski if he thinks he can play until 50. "Plus, in Florida, it's kind of a retiree state, so I feel like I can play and then just glide into retirement. I think I can. I think it's a yes."

Brady will return to Gillette Stadium on Oct. 3 to face Belichick and the Patriots for the first time since joining the Bucs in free agency.
