Tom Brady explains why he never uses the Patriots when playing Madden
Tom Brady is the Madden 18 cover athlete, but there’s a good chance he won’t be using the team he actually plays for in real life when he fires up the game.
According to Brady, he usually doesn’t get to play as the New England Patriots — because his 9-year-old son Jack claims them before he can.
“I don’t like doing it,” Brady said, via ESPN. “It does feel weird. I feel like I’m going up against my own guys that I love. Julian [Edelman] catches a pass, and I’ve got to tackle him. I’ve been Green Bay, because I like that offense. And I’ve been Seattle, because I love being that defense.”
Brady is excited to be on the cover this year and intends to break the Madden Curse. He just might not be himself when he plays.
