Brady is his hero’s hero

While it is well known that Brady is a fan of Young, the former 49ers quarterback also admires Brady greatly. Recently, as Brady’s personal life became quite the public affair, talking about it, Young said, “We now see the full measure of the difficulties played out. But those difficulties are shared by the locker room. They’re shared by his brothers in the locker room and shared by the whole organization. So they feel it as well. Not obviously as personal, but they’re the team, they’re with him.”

Young definitely knows a thing or two about locker room dynamics and knows how this has been for the entire Buccaneers organization.
