The New England Patriots are very appreciative for their superstar quarterback they came in and gave them 20 years of dominance, and even though he has moved on to another franchise, they wanted him to know how much they still care for him.
Owner Robert Kraft and the team bought a full-page ad for the six-time Super Bowl champion in the Sunday edition of the Tampa Bay Times, thanking him for his 20-year run with the club.
The test reads as:
“For 20 amazing years, you gave us everything you had. When you arrived as a sixth-round pick – and the best selection this franchise has ever made – no one imagine all you’d accomplish or how much you’d soon mean to an entire region. You now leave New England after two decades of dominance as the GOAT and forever a part of our family.
Your passion for the game, competitiveness and constant pursuit of excellence resulted in an unprecedented six Super Bowl victories, nine conference championships and 17 division titles. You’re now recognized as the greatest of all time for what you’ve accomplished on the field, but you’re an even better person. Thank you, Tom, for your countless contributions to the New England Patriots, and we wish you and your beautiful family continued success. There will never be another Tom Brady.
To the Buccaneers fans and the Tamp Bay community – take care of him. You got a great one.
With much love and appreciation,
The Kraft Family and the New England Patriots”
Brady finished his career with the Patriots throwing for 74,571 yards and 541 touchdowns, which both rank as the most for a single team in NFL history.
