Tom Brady is putting his football training to good use!
On Sunday, the New England Patriots quarterback dodged some tough questions during an interview with ESPN‘s E:60. Specifically, the A-list athlete avoided confirming or denying his wife Gisele Bündchen‘s claims that he suffered from a concussion during the 2016 season. Well, well!
Still the American athlete skillfully made it so he didn’t perjure himself or throw the supermodel under the bus. The 39-year-old dished:
“She’s there every day. I mean, we go to bed in the same bed every night, so I think she knows when I’m sore, she knows when I’m tired, she knows when I get hit. We drive home together [from games]. But, she also knows how well I take care of myself. She’s a very concerned wife and very loving.”
Look at that spin!
Of course, the father-of-three is unable to confirm his wife’s claims that he gets a concussion almost “every year” as if he did he could get his team in trouble. As you may know, if a player is diagnosed with a concussion during a game, the NFL requires the athlete to sit out the rest of the game and demands that a doctor sign off on their health before the individual returns to the field.
Since the Patriots never listed a concussion in any of Tom’s health reports, some might assume the team was trying to cover up a head injury so Brady could keep playing. However, this is merely a conspiracy theory based off Gisele’s comments.
Not to mention, both the NFL and Brady’s agent have denied that the Super Bowl champ suffered from a head trauma. Looks like this controversy is officially buried!
