Tom Brady and his humble beginning with Madden

Tom Brady was a little known figure when he entered the league as the 199th overall pick back in the year 2000. But since then the quarterback has gone on to become arguably the biggest superstar in the league.

Winning seven Super Bowls, Brady has become a household figure in the NFL. And with the fame have come multiple endorsements  and sponsorships.

Brady mindboggling success has also seen him grace the cover of the sport’s premier video game franchise called ‘Madden’. And he’s managed to be on the cover not once, but twice. The latest of which will see him on the cover of Madden 22.

But Brady of course was not always a cover star. Infact, back in Madden 2000, the game didn’t even assign his playable character a name. Simply referred to as QB No.12, Brady was nameless and faceless.

And Julian Edelman couldn’t help but roast the modern day legend for it.
