When Tom Brady entered the NFL in 2000, it’s safe to say he and other rookies were subject to the type of hazing that’s been broadly outlawed at all levels football. Just because he bore the brunt of that err in judgement from the league office, coaches, and players, though, doesn’t mean the future Hall-of-Famer is bending the rules to ensure his team’s current crop of first-year players is subjected to similar harassment.

Instead, Brady and the New England Patriots participated in a harmless manner of rookie hazing on Tuesday, running a fumble drill in which rookies were asked to scoop up loose footballs in an area of the field that had been sprayed with water for over an hour. The artificial elements already in place apparently didn’t pose enough of a challenge for the Patriots’ young players, though, leaving Brady to make recovering the football even more difficult by spraying them with a hose as they slid for the ball, as relayed by Henry McKenna of Patriots Wire.

The six-time Super Bowl winner alluded to his debauchery on Twitter later in the afternoon.

Brady is coming off another season in which he staked his claim as the best quarterback of all time. He threw for 4,355 yards, 29 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions in 2018 while completing 65.8 percent of his passes during the regular season, then led the Patriots to another Vince Lombardi trophy in the playoffs, a run that included an instant-classic 37-31 overtime victory on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game.
