Tom Brady: I probably touch my centers' butts more than their wives
There's a competition going on in New England to be the Patriots starting center and that competition means Tom Brady's touching a lot of butts.
What we don't know though is who the team's starting center will be. Dan Connolly and Ryan Wendell have both been taking reps with the first team during training camp, but it's unclear so far who will be the starter in Week 1.
Brady was asked on Wednesday if his play has been affected by Connolly and Wendell splitting reps. It was then and there that Brady proved not all answers given by Patriots players are robotic Belichickian responses.
"I've got confidence in those guys," Brady said, via the team's official website. "I love both Dan and Wendy. 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."
Brady was then asked if his quote was 'off the record.'
"It's the truth," Brady responded.
Only one of these guys can be the Patriots starting center, so it looks like at least one wife will get her husband's butt back once the season starts.
