There’s no denying Tom Brady’s time in New England will be remembered as one of the best stories in sports history. The 2000 sixth-round pick developed into the greatest quarterback in NFL history and he helped lead the Patriots to six Super Bowl championships.
However, there’s also no denying that Brady’s exit from the Patriots wasn’t the cleanest. With Brady set to return to Foxboro in two weeks, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Patriots, the quarterback’s father, Tom Brady Sr., gave his honest opinion about his son leaving the Patriots.
Speaking on the “Tom Curran’s Patriots Talk Podcast,” Brady Sr. said he feels that his son has been vindicated after leaving the Patriots in 2020 and winning his seventh championship.
"Damn right," Brady Sr. said. "Damn right. “(Bill) Belichick wanted him out the door and last year he threw 56 touchdowns. I think that's a pretty good year."
When asked if his son, Brady, feels the same way, Brady Sr. replied, “Damn right.”
