Tom Brady adds a whole new meaning to the term “generational player”. He really is out here playing through multiple generations. The photo above shows Brady shaking hands with Jon Runyan Jr., the son of Brady’s former Michigan teammate Jon Runyan Sr.
Brady and Runyan Sr. played together at Michigan from 1995 to 1999. Jon Runyan Sr. played 14 seasons in the NFL, most famously for the Philadelphia Eagles, and then served as a US representative for New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District from 2011 to 2015.
Jon Runyan Jr. followed in his dad’s footsteps and also played college football at Michigan and was drafted by the Packers in the sixth round of this year’s NFL draft.
To put it into further perspective, Runyan Sr. and Brady played together before Runyan Jr. was ever born. He was merely a thought.
Tom Brady really keeps defying father time and all the pundits and analysts like Max Kellerman, who regularly has said for the past few years that Brady was going to “fall off a cliff” in terms of performance, something that Brady has yet to do.
Not only is Brady playing good football, but his Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been ranked as high as the best football team in recent power rankings after the Bucs convincingly destroyed the Green Bay Packers. It really is Tom vs Time.
