Chris Godwin has hilarious take on Tom Brady’s running ability
Tom Brady proved on Monday night that he can still make a play with his legs here and there if he needs to, but one of his teammates would prefer that it never happen again.
Brady has 51 rushing yards in 10 games this season, which is actually his highest total since he had 64 in 2016. The 44-year-old picked up a big first down with an 11-yard scamper in Monday’s win over the New York Giants. To say he was fired up would be an understatement.
"How much did you enjoy that 10 yard run?"

Bucs wide receiver Chris Godwin wasn’t quite as happy to see it. When asked about the run on Wednesday, Godwin told reporters he gets nervous and thinks to himself “please get down” every time he sees Brady take off.

Fortunately, Brady’s always been a smart player. He usually only scrambles when he has an opportunity to slide and not get hit. Godwin shouldn’t fret too much.
