Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady started the New Year on a generous note, signing the ball that New York Jets cornerback Brandin Echols intercepted in last week’s 28-24 win. Future Brady Interceptors, however, shouldn’t expect the same generosity.

On the Let’s go! podcast, Brady explained his reluctance to sign interception bullets before and why he didn’t plan to do so in the future.

“I don’t necessarily like signing errors, let me say that,” said the seven-time Super Bowl champion and three-time MVP. “So this is the last time I’m going to do this. I know it’s giving season. I don’t plan on giving people more presents for that either. as a quarterback. ”

Echols intercepted Brady late in the second quarter, and his 30-yard return helped set up a field goal for the Jets to give them a 17-10 halftime lead over the defending Super Bowl champions. Brady, however, finished the second half in a more typical Brady fashion, as he punched Cyril Grayson for a winning 33-yard touchdown pass with 15 seconds left.

After the game, Echols approached Brady with the interception ball to get his autograph. Brady nodded at the 24-year-old rookie, and Jets coach Robert Saleh applauded the “major contender” for doing so.

“For him to sign the ball I think that speaks volumes to him,” Saleh said of Brady. “I don’t care what anyone says. He chose Tom, it’s a childhood dream. He’s one of the greatest of all time, and for Tom, making him happy with an autograph and doing it for him is pretty cool of him. ”

The Buccaneers (12-4) wrap up their regular season at home against the Carolina Panthers before heading to the playoffs in an attempt to defend their Super Bowl crown, while the Jets (4-12) end with the Bills from Buffalo.
