Fired-up Brady talks trash, celebrates at Patriots camp

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Tom Brady still has that competitive fire.

Brady's trash-talking and celebrations highlighted the fourth day of New England Patriots training camp Sunday.

Cornerback Malcolm Butler served as Brady's foil on the second straight practice in pads. Butler, whose goal-line interception of Seattle's Russell Wilson sealed the title for New England in February, began chirping during drills.

Brady later completed a pass to Julian Edelman and let Butler have it.

Brady took the vast majority of first-team snaps, even as he faces a four-game suspension for his alleged role in tampering with footballs during last season's AFC title game.

Brady turns 38 on Monday.
