The pair met up for around 20 minutes after the Bucs narrowly defeated the New England Patriots in what was the NFL’s second most-watched Sunday Night Football game.
“It was a nice conversation,” Brady said on the “Let’s Go!” podcast. “I have been really focused on what I need to do with the Bucs and he’s focused on his role with the Patriots.”
He continued: “For 20 years I basically saw him every day, and since I left New England we’ve just never seen each other face-to-face. It was nice to catch up and exchange just some different thoughts that we had been having. And it was a good way to end the night for both of us.”
Brady’s return to Gillette Stadium was played up as the ultimate showdown between coach and player but the veteran quarterback explained his relationship with Belichick as much deeper than that.
