If you’re going to get some sage advice from someone as you’re about to start your career as an NFL quarterback, you could do a lot worse than Tom Brady.
The GOAT took some time to have lunch with incoming rookie QBs Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Anthony Richardson, and Will Levis.
The lunch was hosted by Fanatics CEO Michael Rubin, who welcomed the rookie QBs, Brady, and rapper Travis Scott to his home in Los Angeles.
Notice, he called them “Tommy” and “Trav.” That’s how you know they’re friends. It’s like when an actor says they had a good time working with “Bob De Niro.”
Brady shared some advice with the league’s latest crop of QB talent.
“Alright, going in the second round? In the end, that’s not really that big of a deal. Going first-overall? In the end, it’s not a big deal,” Brady said. Words that Will Levis probably found pretty cool.
Bryce Young maybe not so much.
“It’s great,” Brady said of going first overall. “You got an opportunity, you’re probably gonna be paid more than anyone for a time period, but I was drafted, y’know, 199. I just outlasted everybody.
“There’s another me back there. Right?” Brady said, of how there’s almost certainly another player selected later in the draft prepared to work his tail off. “So, how do I keep my edge on everybody? I had to keep working. I didn’t go hey, ‘I’m good, I won three Super Bowls. I’m good.'”
We all know that Brady definitely, didn’t stop grinding after winning three Super Bowls. Or four, five, or six.
You’ve got to think those four quarterbacks will be chewing on those words and everything else Brady said to them as they gear up for their NFL debuts.

That guy, Rubin likes to hang with black entertainers and black athletes. He thinks it makes him cool. You just know he was, as a kid and, now as an “adult” a pussy.
