Tom Brady does not like touching sweaty behinds, nor does he like touching them.
The New England Patriots legend is known as a fierce competitor that has helped lead him to six Super Bowl rings.
Ted Karras will serve as the starting center of the New England Patriots when they face off against the Dolphins in Miami. It is definitely going to be a hot day, and Brady is a man who doesn’t like his centers to sweat on him.
Brady goes to the extreme by personally tossing towels down his teammates’ uniforms to avoid receiving slippery footballs from his centers that would definitely impact him throwing. The Atheltic’s Nick Underhill talked to former centers who described their experience with Brady.
“He literally stood behind me, took his hand, and stuck the towel down my pants,” Connolly said. “I walked around that game, feeling like I was carrying a loaded diaper the entire time. It was the most uncomfortable thing, but he was so crazy about not getting his hands wet that he would stuff s— down our pants.”
The report goes on to say that Brady tried the method in 2000 with center Dan Koppen and has done it ever since.
David Andrews actually tried to train his body not to seat, but he quickly realized that it was impossible.
“It was something that was very different for me at first, especially when he grabs you as a rookie in training camp and throws a towel down your butt,” Andrews said. “Pulling your shorts back, dumping baby powder down your butt. But that’s part of it, and obviously, if it affects how he operates, you want to be as good as you can about it.”
The Dolphins are coming off an embarrassing loss at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens and now they have to face a well oiled team in the Patriots.
