Tom Brady is an NFL player currently playing for the New England Patriots. He is a three-time Super Bowl Champion, two-time NFL MVP and has been named to the Pro Bowl 10 times.
Brady has won the NFL Offensive Player of the Year twice, was named Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year in 2005 and Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year in 2007.
The Patriots selected Brady with the 199th pick overall in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft. He played college football at Michigan.
Brady played sparingly during his first two seasons and got his opportunity to play when starter Drew Bledsoe was injured in the first month of the 2001 season.
Brady then led his team to an upset of the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI. He led the team to two more Super Bowl titles in 2003 and 2004, as the Patriots became the second team to win three Super Bowls in four years.
In 2007, Brady capped off an MVP season after he threw for a then-NFL record 50 touchdowns, leading the Patriots to a 16-0 regular season record. Patriots went on to lose to the New York Giants.
In the first game of the next season, Brady tore the ACL in his left knee and missed the entire season.
Brady has a 19-8 playoff record, and over the past five seasons, the Patriots became the first team in NFL history to earn a first round bye in the playoffs in each of those seasons.
