Chiefs star Chris Jones reveals how to get under Tom Brady’s skin
Tom Brady may be the greatest quarterback of all-time, but he is still human, meaning it is possible to irritate him on the football field.
Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones figured out a way to do that this past season, telling Barstool Sports on the Pardon My Take podcast that calling Brady old will set him off.
“If he on the ground, you call him an old-a– mother——. Or, ‘Get your old a– up.’ [Or], ‘You need to f——g retire,’” Jones said. “Brady got up so f—–g fast, that’s the quickest I’ve ever seen Brady move.”
Brady is 42 years old and will be 43 by the start of next season, so Jones is right in saying that Father Time isn’t exactly on his side. But that doesn’t mean Brady likes hearing it:
“Brady is a good guy. He cussed me out, but I loved it,” added Jones. “But that’s the first time I’ve ever seen Brady cuss a D-lineman out. So obviously I was doing something right.”
Of course, right now, Brady is probably a whole lot more concerned about where he will be playing in 2020 rather than what Jones may say to him in their next potential meeting.
Brady is set to be a free agent next month, and while the general consensus seems to be that the future Hall-of-Famer will return to the New England Patriots, there doesn’t appear to be any guarantee that he will stay.
The six-time Super Bowl champion threw for 4,057 yards, 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2019.
