Tom Brady just won’t let it go – maybe that’s why he has six Super Bowl rings.
The Buccaneers quarterback commemorated the 20-year anniversary of him being selected in the sixth round by the Patriots in the 2000 NFL Draft – 199th overall – by posting the list of signal-callers taken ahead of him to his Instagram story on Thursday.
“Nope I haven’t forgot,” Brady wrote on the post.
Arguably the most accomplished of the quarterbacks taken before Brady was Chad Pennington of the Jets at No. 18. He played 11 seasons in the NFL and went 44-37. Brady, however, went on torment the Jets during his 20 years in New England. He went 29-7 against Gang Green, won 11 straight AFC East division titles and 17 overall.
The quarterback taken right before Brady in 2000 was Spergon Wynn by the Browns at 183 overall. Wynn started one game for Cleveland and three total in the NFL. The Browns are still looking for a true franchise quarterback. The other quarterbacks taken before Brady were Giovanni Carmazzi (49ers, 65th), Chris Redman (Ravens, 75th), Tee Martin (Steelers 163rd) and Marc Bulger (Saints 168th).
Brady will try to win his next Super Bowl ring with the Buccaneers – ending his sometimes rocky 20-year football marriage to coach Bill Belichick. Brady signed a two-year $50 million deal with Tampa Bay in March.
