Crafty veteran quarterback Tom Brady, at 42 years old entering his 21st NFL season, hasn’t lost his sense of humor and competitiveness. The six-time Super Bowl champion is still driven by winning and appears extremely motivated ahead of his first campaign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In response to a Twitter post from Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill on Friday, Brady wrote, “Totally agree Cheetah.”Why not go 7 rings…”, a direct play on the wide receiver’s goal to win seven titles with his franchise.
Answering a question about Kansas City’s potential success in the future this week following a noteworthy offseason, Hill kicked things off by acknowledging his goal of seven championships.
“Why not go seven rings?” Hill said. “Right now we’re chasing (Michael) Jordan, so that’s what we do. So I’m going over five and saying seven.”
Speaking for all NFL fans, a Buccaneers-Chiefs meeting in next season’s Super Bowl would make for quite the matchup of future Hall of Fame quarterbacks pitting teacher vs. protege. Earlier this month, Patrick Mahomes signed the richest deal in NFL history with the Chiefs, a long-term extension that keeps him in Kansas City for the next decade in hopes of establishing a dynasty in the AFC — much like Brady’s career in New England.
Mahomes is 24-7 in 31 starts over three years from 2017-19, completing 65.9 percent of his passes for 9,412 yards and 76 touchdowns to 18 interceptions. He led the Chiefs to the franchise’s Super Bowl LIV title, scoring 21 unanswered points in Kansas City’s 31-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
As a first-year starter, Mahomes was the 2018 NFL MVP. He went 12-4, completing 383 of his 580 passes (66.0 percent) for 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns to 12 interceptions while starting all 16 games.
After signing a three-year extension worth $54 million in the offseason, Hill missed four games last season with a shoulder injury. He still finished with 58 receptions for 860 yards and seven touchdowns.
