Tom Brady’s epic message to Antoine Winfield Jr. after getting Super Bowl LV tattoo
Antoine Winfield knows that longtime New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won yet another Super Bowl title in his first season as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, Brady certainly didn’t get it done alone down in Tampa Bay this past season as the Buccaneers excelled in all phases of the game with the team’s front office putting together quite the impressive roster from top to bottom.
With both young talent and veteran players alike contributing for the upstart Buccaneers in 2020-21, rookie defensive back Antoine Winfield Jr. was one of the many that helped propel Tampa Bay to only its second Lombardi Trophy ever. It wasn’t just the Tom Brady show, and it definitely wasn’t just a case of the offense doing its job throughout the four-game postseason which began in Washington, moved through New Orleans and Green Bay, and ended in Tampa on Super Sunday.
Tom Brady is quite aware that Winfield has continued to make headlines since Super Bowl LV as well while most recently getting a tattoo to commemorate the team’s crowning victory over the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs on Tampa Bay’s home turf.
Winfield Jr.’s new ink didn’t go unnoticed either as the aforementioned Tom Brady quickly chimed in to send a classic TB12 message to the young defensive back.

Although Winfield Jr. performed well throughout his rookie season, he will no doubt begin the 2021 campaign having been remembered most for delivering Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill a taste of his own medicine during the latter stages of Super Bowl LV. Tom Brady was able to see this up close. With Hill often dishing out his patented peace sign upon scoring touchdowns as a result of his blazing speed, the rookie defender returned the favor as the Buccaneers pulled away from the Chiefs late in the fourth quarter earlier this month.
Winfield Jr. is, of course, the son of former NFL defensive back Antoine Winfield Sr. He and Tom Brady will try to help the Buccaneers defend their NFL championship next season.
