Since being chosen in 2000, NFL quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots has amassed a record seven Super Bowl victories, three NFL MVP trophies, and four Super Bowl MVP accolades.

He was instrumental in the Patriots’ victories in Super Bowls LI and LIII, without which they would not have beaten the Atlanta Falcons and Los Angeles Rams, respectively. In March of 2020, after 20 years with the Patriots, Brady would sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
