So, to see Tom Brady, universally regarded as the GOAT, join in on the festivities was a sight to behold. So much so that the legend’s activities caught a fan in the Shaquille O’Neal household.

The first weekend of a new NFL season is already over. While the day saw some scintillating action, it might be something off the field that gets the nation talking.

Taking off his suit jacket to reveal a jersey underneath, TB-12 took another lap of the field.

So much so that the clip found a way into the Shaq household as Shaqir shared the clip of Brady making his return on Instagram.

The Return

After spending the vast majority of his career in New England, Brady sought out newer pastures. Shifting to Tampa Bay, the 46-year-old was successful in his next stop as well. However, there is no place quite like home. Returning as an analyst, Brady couldn’t wait to put on the old jersey.

I haven’t put this on in a while but it still feels pretty good I’ll tell you that,” said the 7x Super Bowl Champion to sideline reporters. While one legend made his triumphant return, another showed his appreciation for Brady’s greatness.
