Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump was one of Tom Brady's most vocal supporters during the quarterback's Deflategate hearing.
Trump called the NFL's treatment of Brady “ridiculous,” and described Brady as a “great friend.”
It appears Trump’s words were more than just political posturing.
While reporters waited for Brady at his locker after Patriots practice Saturday, a photo revealed Brady may be returning the support to Trump. Spotted in a corner of Brady's locker was an unmistakable “Make America Great Again” red cap.
Trump, who has adopted the slogan for his campaign, has been rocking the hat during speeches around the country. We don't know if this counts as a vote, but Brady clearly took note of who supported him during the hearing.
