Tom Brady really wanted to apologize, but Tyrann Mathieu’s attitude towards it made him switch it up real quick.
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeSean McCoy was in the midst of recalling stories about his time with the team when it brought him back to the Super Bowl between the Bucs and Chiefs.
During a recent episode of the I Am Athlete podcast, McCoy revealed what Brady said to Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu while the two were jawing at each other during the game.
Brady replied on Instagram, “Just football… love my guy Tryann Mathieu.”
Brady became just the second player in NFL history to throw for 5,000 yards in multiple seasons and became the oldest player in league history to hit the 5,000 mark in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 41-17 win against the Carolina Panthers.
Following his 326-yard, three-touchdown showing on Sunday, Brady finished the season with 5,316 yards passing, 43 passing touchdowns, and 485 completions.
The 44-year-old Brady is now getting set to defend last year’s Super Bowl victory as he and the Bucs try to go back-to-back.
