Does Tom Brady Sr. feel his son has been vindicated? ‘Damn right!’



Does Tom Brady Sr. feel his son has been vindicated? ‘Damn right!’

Tom Brady Sr. says he feels a sense of vindication for his son, given what’s transpired since the Patriots quarterback left and signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020.

“Damn right,” (I feel vindication), Brady Sr. said during an appearance on Tom Curran’s Patriots Talk Podcast. “(Bill) Belichick wanted him out the door. And last year he threw 56 touchdowns. I think that’s a pretty good year.”

Curran then asked if his son felt the same way.

“Damn right,” he said. “Damn right.”

It’s a little more than a week before Brady’s return to Foxboro, and his father threw out a few haymakers.

But Brady Sr. also voiced appreciation for his son’s time in New England, which spanned two decades and six Super Bowl championships.

“My feeling is Tommy is extraordinarily appreciative of everything that happened during his New England career, and he’s more than happy that he’s moved on, because it was pretty obvious that the Patriots regime felt it was time for him to move on,” said Brady Sr. “And, frankly, it may have well have been perfect for Belichick to move on. On the other hand, I think the Tampa Bay Bucs are pretty happy that the decision was made in Foxboro that they didn’t want to afford him, or didn’t want to keep him when his last contract came up.”

Brady Sr. said he was looking forward to his son’s return to Foxboro.

“(I’m) very nostalgic. That was our home for 20 years. And, you know, the fans embraced Tommy, the city embraced Tommy and the team embraced Tommy for a while,” he said. “So when he comes home, it’s going to be a real treat that he spent 20 years making his mark in Boston. We owe a lot to the Patriots, and a lot to Boston.

“Like every phase in life, things move on, our kids get older, our kids move on, they move out of the house, they go elsewhere, and that’s kind of what it’s like for Tommy right now, where he’s moved elsewhere. Wherever he is, we support our kids. Tommy is no different than the rest of us.”

Asked if he was proud of his son, and how he handled the split with the Patriots, Brady Sr. indicated he was.

“He’s the best son that a dad could have,” he said. “In that regard, I couldn’t be prouder or happier. He’s just a wonderful guy.”
