Friday Featured Athlete: New England Patriots Legend Tom Brady
Each Friday, Ultimate Autographs will feature one athlete that is part of the Ultimate Autographs lineup. This week's Friday Featured Athlete is the greatest quarterback of all time, New England Patriots legend Tom Brady.
Tom Brady entered the NFL after being drafted in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. Brady is widely considered the biggest steal of the NFL draft considering where he was selected and the accomplishments he's achieved.
Since joining the Patriots, Brady has led the team to play in 13 AFC Championship games, including eight in a row from 2011 to 2018. He's also led the team to nine Super Bowls, winning six of them. Combined with Bill Belichick, the duo has won more regular and postseason games than any other coach-quarterback tandem in NFL history.
Brady's accolades are nearly as long as his playing career. Beyond the record 6 Super Bowls, Brady has 4 Super Bowl MVP awards, 3 NFL MVP Awards, and 14 Pro Bowls. He and the Patriots had one of the most prolific seasons in NFL history in 2007, going undefeated in the regular season, with 37-17 being the average score of their games in that season. Brady also earned the NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2009 after suffering a devastating knee injury the year prior.
Over the course of his impressive career, Brady has thrown for over 70,000 yards, 517 TDs and has a regular season record of 207-60. In the playoffs, Brady has thrown for over 11,000 yards with 73 TDs while going 30-10.
Ultimate Autographs will be participating in a private signing with the Patriots star later this month. Fans can get the ultimate autograph from one of the all-time NFL legends by pre-ordering autographed Tom Brady memorabilia. Super Bowl 53 items are available!
