Early Life and College Career

Growing up, Brady would frequently go to San Francisco 49ers games to watch his idol, the renowned quarterback Joe Montana.

Brady was a standout baseball and football player in high school. The Montreal Expos selected him in the 1995 Major League Baseball Draft. But he chose to play football at the University of Michigan instead.

Brady played football for the University of Michigan, but in the first two collegiate seasons, he did not play much on the field. But he started as the starting quarterback in his junior year. Brady completed 350 passes for 2,636 yards that season. He assisted in leading the squad to an Orange Bowl victory in last season.

NFL Career

Going on to the NFL, Brady was selected in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft by the New England Patriots. Tom only participated in one game during his rookie season and was initially used as a backup quarterback.

In 2001, however, things were different. Brady took over as the starting quarterback following the injury of Drew Bledsoe, establishing himself as a capable leader. Brady started 14 games for the squad. They had an amazing 11 wins to 3 losses record, so anyone in doubt about his ability simply needed to check that record. Brady was named the MVP of the game after helping the club defeat the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI during the postseason. After Brady’s first three seasons, the Patriots finished with an amazing 40–12 record, solidifying their place among the NFL’s best teams.

After the team’s 2004 Super Bowl victory over the Carolina Panthers, Brady was named the game’s MVP once again. The Patriots’ winning run reached 21, surpassing the previous record of 18 established by the Miami Dolphins in 1972–73. This momentum continued into the following season. Playing against the Philadelphia Eagles, Brady and the Patriots won their third Super Bowl in four years to cap off the season.

Personal Life

Actress Bridget Moynahan and Brady dated from 2004 till the end of 2006. When Moynahan revealed pregnancy to People magazine on February 18, 2007. She was more than three months along with Brady’s unborn child. Sometime in early December 2006, Brady and Moynahan called it quits, coinciding with Moynahan’s pregnancy. In August of 2007, John Edward Thomas Moynahan was born.

In December 2006, Brady started dating Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen. They met on a blind date thanks to a mutual friend. On February 26, 2009, Brady and Bündchen tied the knot in a modest ceremony at Santa Monica, California’s St. Monica Catholic Church. The pair married again in Costa Rica in April 2009. 2009 saw the birth of their son, and 2012 saw the birth of their daughter. Sadly, Gisele and Tom separated in October 2022.

‘Deflategate’ and Super Bowl XLIX

In Tom Brady mythology, a new term emerged following the 2014 season: “Deflategate“. Following the Patriots’ crushing of the Colts in the AFC Championship Game, it was found that several of the team’s twelve-game balls were underinflated, with one of them coming in at two pounds per square inch under the NFL’s minimum allowance. Brady said, “I didn’t alter the balls in any way, [and] I would never have someone do something that was outside the rules“, in response to accusations of cheating.

The quarterback received a four-game suspension during the 2015 season; after an appeal, Commissioner Roger Goodell affirmed the suspension in July. Brady and the NFL Players Association subsequently launched a lawsuit to get the ban lifted, and in early September, a federal judge granted the quarterback’s request, finding that the suspension was based on illegal grounds.

In 2016, the NFL filed an appeal, and the judge reversed the order to keep Brady out of the NFL. Brady filed another appeal, but in July 2016, he declared that he would live with his suspension.
