Just months after winning his fifth Super Bowl ring, it seems that the career and possibly life of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may be coming to an end.
Last week, it was announced that Brady will be appearing on the cover of the latest edition of the EA Sports football video game Madden 18. Landing the cover hasn’t exactly been a good omen for past players. Former Madden cover players that have been bitten by the curse include: Garrison Hearst (broken ankle), Eddie George (toe), Duante Culpepper (back), Marshall Faulk (ankle), Michael Vick (prison sentence), Donovan McNabb (hernia), Shaun Alexander (foot), Vince Young (general sucking), Brett Favre (joining the Jets), Troy Polomalu (knee), Peyton Hillis (strep throat…no really), Adrian Peterson (more of a curse for his child), and Richard Sherman (Tommy John surgery), and of course last season, Rob Gronkowski saw his season end early with a back injury.
Upon hearing the news Brady immediately contacted a lawyer, and began putting his affairs in order.
“It has been a fun ride.” stated Brady through tears. “I have enjoyed not only my time in the NFL, but also my time on earth. Unfortunately, it seems that all good things must come to an end. I will be leaving all of my worldly goods to my children. I will leave my starting position on the Patriots with Jimmy G. I have to give a few bucks to my boys John Jastremski and James McNally. Those guys are true friends. Thank you to Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, all of Patriot Nation…oh, and one more thing…SUCK IT, GOODELL!”
