Brady, Tom. Six feet, four inches tall. 225 pounds. 22 years old with 20 years of NFL experience.
A hysterical misprint in the New England Patriots official roster earlier this week listed the 42-year-old superstar quarterback as a full two decades younger than he actually is.
Brady noticed the error and posted a photo to his Instagram with his incorrect age circled and a message thanking the team for “finally” getting his age right.
Tom Brady says he doesn’t want to think he’s “any different than everyone else” — but he can acknowledge that the situation he’s in is “unique.”
The star quarterback is entering his 20th season both in the league and with the New England Patriots and just days ago celebrated his 42nd birthday. He is the winningest quarterback in regular season, postseason and Super Bowl history, and thanks to a recent contract extension with the Patriots, he has some more time to add onto those totals.
After this season, however, there’s some uncertainty.
You don’t become the winningest quarterback in NFL history by eating pizza – or at least, not bad pizza.
Tom Brady’s bulked-up physique at New England Patriots training camp last week had some fans wondering if he had ditched his famous TB12 method. Now the star quarterback is admitting that he does, in fact, occasionally cheat on his diet.
“You should never restrict what you really want,” the 42-year-old told Men’s Health.
Brady has famously avoided popular foods like tomatoes and strawberries — healthy foods to mere mortals — in favor of avocado ice cream and veggies. So it comes as a bit of a shock to find out that the six-time Super Bowl champion and seemingly ageless wonder does partake in the pleasures of bacon, pizza and chocolate every now and then.
Tom Brady and Peyton Manning may have been bitter rivals on the gridiron, but off of it, they’re just a couple of buddies taking selfies.
Manning, drafted in 1998 by the Indianapolis Colts, and Brady, drafted in 2000 by the New England Patriots, have been constantly compared and often found themselves fighting it out on the biggest of stages. From 2001 to 2015, the two quarterbacks played each other a total of 17 times before Manning announced his retirement in 2016.
The two faced off in high-stakes games so often, in fact, that their rivalry has its own Wikipedia page.
Brady and Manning’s friendship had been documented previously, but the Patriots quarterback decided to put any and all rumors of bad blood to rest on Wednesday with a post on Instagram.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be a spry 42 years of age at the start of the 2019 NFL season this September.
Talk of his retirement has been constant over the past several years, though Brady himself has said he wants to play until he’s 45 — or, more candidly, until he starts to suck.
However, a tweet sent by the quarterback from Patriots minicamp on Tuesday that seemed to reference an impending retirement decision sent fans spiraling.
Kurt Warner knows a thing or two about successful NFL quarterbacks, but his list of the top 5 signal-callers heading into the 2019 season may surprise you.
The Pro Football Hall of Famer’s list includes two quarterbacks who didn’t make the postseason in 2018 and three who did. Several of last season’s stars, including rookie Baker Mayfield and the resurging Andrew Luck, didn’t quite make the cut, nor did Super Bowl LIII contender Jared Goff.
Tom Brady, approaching his 42nd birthday, was, of course, still atop the ranking. Quarterbacks who are often compared to him, however, like Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger, found themselves farther down.
In the United States, Mother’s Day is a chance to honor and cherish the mother figures in your life — especially on Instagram.
This has become especially true for the nation’s biggest athletes, whose moms are heralded as the real MVPs behind their lavish lives and successful careers. Many of today’s most talented football, basketball and baseball players took to Instagram on Sunday to post sweet photos and videos of their mothers and the mothers of their children.
Several stars, like Tom Brady and Russell Westbrook, took to the social media platform more than once to thank multiple moms in their life.
Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bündchen are staples at the annual Met Gala, but the New England Patriots quarterback wasn’t the only superstar athlete to get dressed to the nines for the evening.
While none of the athletes were dressed up as literal chandeliers or entered on an ancient Egyptian bed carried by shirtless pharaohs, they still managed to pull off some show-stopping ensembles.
All eyes were of course on Brady and Bündchen who donned complementing maroon and pink designer outfits. Brady was also smartly accessorized, sporting Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen’s Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Edition “150 Years” timepiece on his wrist.
Super Bowl LIII MVP and Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman made an appearance alongside his teammate and was also seen hamming it up with Cleveland Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who showed up in a black cap, bow tie and kilt.
The 2019 NFL draft is fast approaching. With names like Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa and Josh Allen available, it seems likely we already know how the first few selections of the first round will go on April 25.
But what about the rest of the picks?
A top-heavy draft class doesn’t mean some diamonds in the rough won’t be found further down in the draft. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, selected No. 199 overall in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft, is evidence of that — and this year, the Patriots may draft his heir apparent.
