Did someone order an extra serving of Tom Brady?
The Buccaneers quarterback (and his seven Super Bowl wins) is the subject of a 10-episode docuseries beginning on Tuesday, Nov. 16, chronicling his life and times in the NFL.
Each episode of the series covers a Brady Super Bowl run, which could offer new and fresh information, considering how tightened up Brady and the Patriots were during the majority of TB12’s tenure in Foxborough.
The ESPN+ series also includes various interviews with figures of Brady’s past and present, including Julian Edelman, Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski and others.
