Tom Brady was out of sight, but he certainly wasn’t out of mind.
Although President Donald Trump didn’t mention Brady once during his address at the Patriots’ White House visit Wednesday, New England’s other quarterbacks made sure to shout out their teammate, who was absent from the festivities due to “personal family matters.”
Patriots third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett posed for a photo with backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo, and the two made sure to leave a space where Brady presumably would have stood had the five-time Super Bowl champion been able to make the trip to Washington, D.C.
Brady, of course, was named the MVP of Super Bowl LI after helping New England overcome a 25-point third-quarter deficit en route to a 34-28 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
