TAMPA, Fla. — It sounds like Tom Brady's father has found some vindication in the GOAT's move from New England to Florida.
"Damn right, damn right," Tom Brady Sr. said in an interview with NBC Sports Boston. "[Bill] Belichick wanted him out the door and last year he threw 56 touchdowns. I think that’s a pretty good year.”
Does he think his son feels the same way?
"Damn right," Brady Sr. responds again without hesitation.
The GOAT's father was also asked about the timing of the quarterback's move to the Tampa Bay area.
“Tommy is extraordinarily appreciative of everything that happened during his New England career and he is more than happy that he’s moved on because it was pretty obvious that the Patriot regime felt that it was time for him to move on...," Brady Sr. said.
Brady came to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 after 20 seasons and six Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots. He'd secure his seventh ring in history-making fashion in Super Bowl LV as the Buccaneers became world champions on their home turf.
“He’s the best son a dad could ever have and in that regard, I couldn’t be prouder or happier about him," Brady's dad said in the interview when asked if he was proud of his son. "He’s just a wonderful guy.”
