LEGENDARY quarterback Kurt Warner has revealed he thinks “it’s time to go” for Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.
Brady, 45, has been grappling with personal troubles this season and rumors he and wife Gisele Bundchen have hired divorce lawyers.
Warner told People that both Brady and Rodgers, 38, should be thinking about retirement.
Warner said: “I think these two guys look exhausted.
“It’s okay to say, ‘You know what? It’s not like it used to be.
“‘I may not be who I used to be, or overall it’s just too difficult to get everyone up to standard.
“‘Maybe it’s time to go away.'”
Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers team is 3-4 and he has looked frustrated on the field.
Brady was spotted yelling at teammates on the sidelines last week and also threw a pill in disgust earlier this season.
Rodgers, meanwhile, has seen his Green Bay Packers also fall to 3-4.
The quarterback returned to the team this season after speculating he might leave or even retire.
Brady ditched talk of retirement in a press conference last week.
The topic was discussed by Mike Florio and Chris Simms on an episode of Pro Football Talk last week.
The couple debated whether Brady or Rodgers would be more likely to walk away during the campaign.
Florio asked Simms, “Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, chance of one of these guys getting off and walking out during the season? Which of the two is more likely to do it right now?”
And Simms replied: “Normally I would have felt that Rodgers would be that guy.
“But because of that year and some things off the field that are coming in at home and on personal things with Brady, this is the one year that I think maybe it could be Brady.
“It appears, and I don’t know, that his wife is threatening divorce or going down that route, by all due account of what you’ve read.
“I think Rodgers is usually the guy who’s more renegade and says, ‘Fuck it, I’m out of here.’
“But this is a weird year where we see Brady doing weird crap and having personal issues.”
Florio added: “I’ve been thinking the whole time there’s a chance Brady will check out during the season and I still think that’s happening.”
