Tom Brady on Howard Stern: “It was just time” to leave New England Patriots

The Bucs new QB opens up to one of the best interviewers in broadcasting, and after some initial hiccups, reveals more about himself than we’ve seen.

There was plenty to look forward to with Tom Brady’s interview with Howard Stern on Sirius Radio this morning. It’s his first real public appearance since leaving the New England Patriots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he certainly let loose more than we’ve heard from him previously.

Here’s the highlights from Twitter as we’re putting them all in one post here.

As Brady’s new neighbor (he’s a few streets over from me, but it’s faster by kayak), we know we’ve got it good here in South Tampa. But don’t tell everybody, real estate is already ridiculous.

Don’t worry Tom: Your Davis Islands neighbors will leave you alone. Get the sausage rigatoni at Oggi and the Café con Leche at DI Coffee Bar. Thank me later over dinner at Bern’s.

I guess Derek got South Tampa Spectrum internet too. Can confirm IT’S THE WORST.


We’ve come a long way on marijuana usage, so this might be a story or two for a day or two. Medical marijuana is legal in Florida, but you will need a card issued by the state if you want to light it up and take a puff while fishing off your back dock.

The #FloridaMan is hitting him already.

We’ll have to ask Brady’s minority teammates if they feel the same way...

More cursing! But it seems Brady left the Pats on good terms and without much bitterness if any at all.

All of the above is interesting, but now we get to the good stuff...

We knew Trump and Brady knew each other. The details are... interesting.

And then some other nuggets Stern was able to get out of one of the most guarded sports superstars we’ve ever had.

All in all, it was two hours and 20 minutes of pretty great radio. We’ll see if Brady continues to be this unguarded in the newest phase of his career in Tampa Bay.
