Many fans underestimate Brady’s leadership qualities. However, he demonstrates these off the playing field by encouraging his teammates. Tampa Bay center Ryan Jensen thanked Brady for believing in him. It’s amazing that the quarterback inspired other professionals and motivated them through his presence.
“Thanks for pushing me every day this season mentally and physically to get back on the field,” Jensen said. “I’m glad I was able to take the field with you one last time! Enjoy retirement, don’t dog me too much in the booth. Love ya man!” This is a beautiful statement and shows how important Brady was to his franchises (via Tampa Bay Times).
