The NFL world has been abuzz over Aaron Rodgers' fiery celebration against the Bears on Sunday when the reigning MVP emphatically yelled to opposing fans that he "still owns" them. That includes Tom Brady. Joining SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday, the Buccaneers quarterback jokingly congratulated his fellow signal-caller for becoming "a shareholder of the Bears," then proceeded to throw shade on a few other NFL teams when asked which cities he owns.
"I wanted to say congrats to Aaron Rodgers," Brady said before discussing film of the Bears and Packers. "Obviously I know he's a great quarterback, but I guess he's now a shareholder of the Bears ... I saw a clip of him really enthusiastically telling the crowd how happy he is to own Soldier Field. And that's really great stuff. He owns the Bucks now. Part owner of Soldier Field. So he's got a great career beyond football."
Asked whether he can lay claim to Upstate New York, where he's gone 32-3 against the Bills, Brady laughed it off: "Not yet." But he was a little clearer when asked about New York City, considering he's 30-8 against the Jets.
"Oh, no," Brady responded with a tinge of playful disgust. "I'll just take the color green. I don't need the Jets. I'll just own the color green. I think that's a little bit better."
He's not wrong, is he? Anyway, stay tuned for this Sunday to see if Brady, who's 5-1 against the Bears, joins Rodgers in owning Chicago.
