This season marks Tom Brady’s fourteenth year in the league. He was drafted in the 6th round of the 2000 draft. He is a much decorated football player. He has won 3 Super Bowls and has played in 5. Here are his awards and accomplishments:

  • AP NFL MVP (2007, 2010)

  • AP second team all pro (2005)
  • Super Bowl champion (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXIX)
  • Super Bowl MVP (XXXVI, XXXVIII)

This is only the football accolades. He has many other Sports Illustrated awards, including male athlete of the year.

His career stats are:
