“Sometimes it gets hard to sort through the ‘You suck, Brady’ in the comments… It’s usually from the Jet fans, but to be clear, if you do text me, ‘You suck,’ yes, I’ll see it, and I may or may not respond. So, shoot me a message. I promise I’m going to get back to as many of you guys as possible,” the Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB said.

So go ahead, what’re you waiting for? If you ever want to talk to a seven-time Super Bowl champion, now’s the chance.
