Buccaneers star QB Tom Brady is about to enter his 23rd season in the NFL. The 5-time Super Bowl MVP recently came out of his retirement in March. He announced he will play his 3rd season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who suffered a playoff exit to the Los Angeles Rams last season. In his career, there’s no defensive player Brady would want to avoid squaring up against than Aaron Donald.

Tom Brady appeared on the Dan Patrick Show where he said“I see Aaron Donald workout on my Instagram. I’m like, ‘Damn, maybe I should have retired. He’s a beast.”

Aaron Donald is quite famous for his NFL-size physique. Donald keeps on uploading the videos of his gym workouts on his social media. Many have compared the muscular body of Aaron Donald to Marvel supervillain Thanos.

Brady says he shouldn’t have come out of retirement as he and the Bucs will face the Rams on November 9th in Los Angeles. The GOAT and Aaron Donald have faced each other 5-times on the football field. Out of those 5-games, Donald has won the last 3-games. 

The first two games were won by Brady when he was with the New England Patriots. In 2016, the Patriots defeated the Rams by 26-10. In 2019, the Rams and the Patriots faced each other in the Super Bowl, where the Patriots won 13-3.

Will Aaron Donald achieve what Tom Brady achieved in 2004?
