But before all the success and the fame, Tom Brady was just a young starter in the league trying to make a name for himself. And luckily, he had a few teammates that had his back.
Tom Brady got a $100K discount on his first New England House
Tom Brady was thrust into the starting role in his 2nd season but managed to make a big impact, taking over the starting spot for the next 20 years. And during his infamous 3rd season, where the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, he got a major favour from his teammate Ty law.
“I think back to our first Super Bowl season , and I had a different relationship with Tom, especially when he was younger. We had the Michigan connection, and I sold him my house for a major, major f—ing discount! I left everything — all the furniture, the TVs — it was basically, ‘Just move in your bags.”
“The guy wasn’t making any money, so I sold it to him for probably $100,000-something less than if I had put it on the market. He was such a hard worker and it was like, ‘This is the least I can do.'”
