    This being TO's 12th season, and him being 33 or 34, I dont remeber, how much longer can he play at this level. He is getting up there in age I just wonder how long he can keep it up.

    3 years is my guess.

    i mean look @ shape hes in. its ridiculous. he might even give 5 more great years. work ethic and desire to win is unquestionable.

    33 in Decembeer, stays in top shape. THis will be his 11 season in the NFL. Not like he got a lot of wear and tear last year.

    Just refer to Jerry Rice, Tim Brown, James Lofton, Cliff Branch - all WRs that stayed in excellent shape and played productively into at least their late '30s and beyond.

    He is the oldest "elite" reciever in the league. This guy is old as Joe Horn and people have written him off. I just dont see him being able to last much longer as a dominent reciever. How do we even know he can be one this season? He hasnt shown us he still has it since he was suspened.

    When he succeeds in camp, should we be happy for him or concerned about the defense?

    He was kicking butt and taking names as of October of last year- so this DRIVEL about him is really, REALLY STUPID.

    Rod Smith and Jimmy Smith went to the Pro Bowl at 35 years old. Joe Horn went at the age of 33.

    As long as he doesn't get any severe injuries, he should have probably 3 years left in him.

    Moronic posts are part and parcel of a board. Just have to laugh and ridicule them when they occur.

    Thanks dude but this guy is a flat out FREAK. You see him slowing down anytime soon? Physically I'd match him against guys 27 or 28 years old.

    me too, and I too have been telling people that him and TG have at least 3 more years of high-productivity left, WRs can play for ages, esp. ones as well-conditioned as TO, and provided he keeps his mouth shut ;)

    That's a good question in any NFLTC configuration. I'm sure coaches want players to simulate conditions that will occur diring the regular season. But at the same time, I'm sure they doN;t want to create unnecessary injuries as a result of over zealous CBs who want to make the roster at the expense of a WR. Kid Gloves ...is that the answer. Do you build up WR egos even more making them look good in practice, know that they may get their heads taken off during the course of any given regular season game?

    Perhaps the good coaches know how to maintain that middle ground necessary to keep players On the edge, without "babying their game."
