Brady was a sixth-round draft pick in 2000, several years before Facebook started.
His 22-season career spanned seven Super Bowl victories in ten appearances.
But there is an interesting fact connected to his tenure as a football player.
Tom Brady’s entire career took place in between Rams Super Bowl wins

The casual football fan wouldn’t even think that his career happened in between two Super Bowl victories by the Rams.
The franchise hasn’t won in so long that it took over two decades before the Rams finally won one in Los Angeles.
Again, Brady’s career has been so extensive that the Rams were still in another place when they last won the world championship.
Success In St. Louis
Brady started his career as Drew Bledsoe‘s backup in 2000.
No one gave him a chance to become arguably the best player of all time because of Bledsoe’s stature and Brady’s performance at the NFL combine.
However, the New England Patriots were not even the league’s best team at that time because the then-St. Louis Rams dominated the opposition, thanks to Kurt Warner, Marshall Faulk, Torry Holt, and Isaac Bruce.
Two seasons later, it was Brady’s turn to defeat the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI, 20-17.
The Patriots won their first-ever Super Bowl while Brady got his first of five Super Bowl MVPs.
He also defeated them again in Super Bowl LIII, this time as the Los Angeles Rams.
Coincidentally, it was also the Rams who ended his career when Matt Gay drilled the game-winning field goal during their Divisional Weekend encounter.
With Brady having impeccable memory, he will never forget the link he had with the Rams.
Perhaps he might give a shoutout to the team once he delivers his Hall of Fame speech.
