Foxborough, Mass. – Tom Brady came out of the tunnel again in front of a screaming New England crowd on Sunday, and by returning there he established himself as one of the NFL’s greatest players. He wanted to thank the Patriots fans for “another day in this stadium that I will never forget.”
After winning six Super Bowl trophies with the Pats, Brady stood on a podium at halftime of the game against the Philadelphia Eagles and declared himself a “Patriot for Life”.
“Twenty-three years ago, no one would have imagined that this journey would bring us here today,” said Brady, who was selected in the sixth round in the 2000 draft.
Brady won six NFL MVP awards and five Super Bowl MVP awards, leading the Patriots to 17 section titles in 19 seasons.
“All our lives lead us on different paths,” the former star quarterback said. They bring different people into our lives. However, one thing I know for sure and will never change is that I am a patriot for life.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft announced that the team would waive the four-year waiting period and induct Brady into the team’s Hall of Fame the following summer.
