He knew that he was not ready to hang up his cleats and ended his retirement after 40 days.
Brady is also an accomplished businessman with his TB12 Method and several other endeavors.
Then, he never fails to give back support to those who have cheered for him over the years, like Northwestern’s Veronica Burton.
In the recent WNBA Draft, the Massachusetts native was selected seventh overall by the Dallas Wings.
Not long after her name was called, Burton received a call from Brady.

Brady said, “Hey, Veronica, what’s up? I just wanted to congratulate you on being drafted. The four-time Big Ten steals leader, I know you’re a finalist for the Nancy Lieberman Award, an All-American, and now you’re in the WNBA. Congrats to you.”
The seven-time Super Bowl winner added, “I know the Burton family very well. I’ve known your dad for a long time, your brother [Austin]. Just know that I’m always cheering you from afar, and I wish you the best of luck. You had an amazing career, and we know you embody everything about the spirit of community. It will take you a long way in life, it will take you a long way in your basketball career, and it will take you a long way in your family.”
Brady Never Forgets His Roots
The three-time MVP has forged relationships like these during his 20 seasons with the New England Patriots.
More importantly, he never forgot the people who helped him along the way, including Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
The two men shared a hug before Brady’s return to Gillette Stadium to play against his former team.
Meanwhile, he might have had a love-hate relationship with longtime head coach Bill Belichick.
But Brady has nothing but respect and kind words for his former mentor during interviews.
