Brady, who spent 20 years winning six Super Bowls with the New England Patriots, posted an animated video to Twitter on Saturday with the caption “Homecoming.”
The 55-second video chronicles his career as a patriot as well as his Super Bowl triumphs before showing Brady on a pirate ship as a buccaneer.
“Tom Brady is a Tampa Bay Buc,” announces a voice over the video, followed by Jay-Z’s reply, “Let me reintroduce myself.”
“I’m not necessarily going to remember,” Brady told Jim Gray on SiriusXM “Let’s Go!” Podcast.
“I don’t think this is the time for that. I will have plenty of opportunities to look back on my football career – none of that, nothing that I really care about doing right now because I am so much in the moment. “
He added: “Obviously it will be a fun week. There is a lot of build-up, a lot of hype and I know it’s been going on for quite some time. I’m thrilled to go and play a soccer game.”
After leaving, Brady won his seventh championship ring, leading the Buccaneers to victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in his first season in Florida. Meanwhile, the Belichick Patriots – without their legendary quarterback for the first time since 1999 – ended the season with a loss record and did not make the playoffs.
