Tom Brady tries to recruit LeBron James to play for Patriots
Basketball and football fans have long wondered how LeBron James would fare in the NFL, and Tom Brady is apparently among those who feel the four-time NBA MVP could do more than just hold his own on the gridiron.
When LeBron shared a photo on Instagram of him getting above the rim for a dunk during a workout, Brady couldn’t help but marvel at the athleticism. He also took the opportunity to recruit LeBron to play for the Patriots.

Can it be considered tampering if you play different sports? Probably not.
There’s no question LeBron has the physical makeup needed to play in the NFL. He’s 6-foot-8 and weighs 250 pounds, so he would be tough to cover. Heck, one of the best coaches in college football even once offered James a scholarship.
Unfortunately for Brady and the Patriots, LeBron has some unfinished business to handle on the basketball court.
