Many have thought that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady had foreplay rituals or some sort of superstition that could help him win. But in an interview with James Corden, host of the Late Late Show, Brady (43) admitted that he doesn’t practice rituals or believe in superstitions before getting dressed. ”It’s the first day you meet someone who doesn’t have superstitions,” said Brady Corden, who was surprised by the veteran quarterback’s reaction. I’m not superstitious at all, Brady maintained, according to Erika Gerald Mason of People.com.
Still, Brady said there are days when his energy level is high, especially when he goes to the stadium for a game like the Super Bowl.
There’s more power there. You have more energy, right? But the veteran quarterback said there were times when he felt tired and had to adjust to the right mentality, especially in afternoon games. Brady said he always listened to music to get in the mood for the game.
Brady has recently renewed itsink contract
Judging by his performance last season, Brady needs no superstitions or rituals as he led the Buccaneers to their first Super Bowl title since 2002. Brady threw for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns with 12 interceptions last season and added 1,061 passing yards and 10 touchdowns in the postseason, including three touchdowns in a 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.
Brady recently signed a four-year contract extension with the Buccaneers, essentially a one-year deal that allows him to reach his goal of playing until he is 45. Barring unforeseen circumstances, Brady would have become the oldest starting quarterback in NFL history.
Gronkowski signs one-year contract
Speaking of contracts: Rob Gronkowski also returned to the Buccaneers and signed a one-year contract, according to Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com.
The deal allows Gronkowski to stay with his friend Brady for another year. They played nine seasons with the New England Patriots and won three Super Bowls together. In Super Bowl LV, the two made NFL history by becoming the duo with the most touchdowns in the postseason. Brady threw two touchdown passes to Gronkowski against the Chiefs, bringing their postseason touchdown total to 14.
In addition to his contributions on the field, Gronk has quickly become one of the most popular guys in our locker room, Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said following the signing of Gronkowski’s contract. According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Gronkowski signed an $8 million contract with another $2 million in incentives. Gronkowski’s base salary is $1.75 million and a guaranteed list bonus of $6.25 million, payable on the 1st. April of Florio is too late. With four years to cut, Gronkowski’s contract is only worth $3 million this season.
