Tom Brady: 'I’ve got my hands on [the centers'] butts probably more than their wives'

Wednesday August 13th, 2014

The Patriots have an open competition at center this season. With four guys in the mix, Tom Brady has been touching a few different butts. Brady told the Boston Herald about the special relationship between he, his centers, and their butts.

"I’ve got confidence in those guys," Brady said. "I love both Dan [Connolly] and Wendy [Ryan Wendell]. I love those guys. They work so hard. The center-quarterback relationship is a pretty special one. I’ve got my hands on their butts probably more than their wives, so it’s a pretty unique trust and relationship you have."

There must be a "pretty unique trust and relationship," but that doesn't give Brady the right to butt into the details of his linemen's love lives.
