Report: Aaron Rodgers following Tom Brady's 'TB12 Method'

Earlier this week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht explained that he told quarterback Tom Brady he believes the seven-time Super Bowl champion "can still play until he’s 50." Brady turns 44 years old in early August and attributes much of his success to the pliability exercises and strict dietary guidelines mentioned in his "The TB12 Method" book. 

It appears Brady's lifestyle may have a new fan: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who fell to Brady and the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game back in January. 

On Tuesday, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated's MMQB said on "The Rich Eisen Show" that Rodgers is a fan of at least some of the advice offered by Brady and trainer Alex Guerrero.

"He actually bought Tom Brady’s book, 'The TB12 Method,' and adopted some of the principles there," Breer said of Rodgers, per Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk. 

Rodgers is signed through 2023, turns 38 years old in December and is the reigning NFL Most Valuable Player. His future is in question not because of his age or injury concerns, but due to alleged unhappiness with the Packers. His displeasure has him seeking either a contract extension or trade, or it could lead to his retirement as soon as this summer. However, this latest development suggests Rodgers is planning to play competitive football for some franchise in September.
