Despite leaving the New England Patriots, quarterback Tom Brady still has a No. 1 fan in his father. David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Tom Brady Sr. and mother Gaylyn have of course long been passionate supporters of their superstar son, and a major career change obviously had an impact on their lives as well.

With Brady officially becoming a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following a two-decade stint with the New England Patriots, the couple have opened up about their son embarking upon the next chapter of his Hall of Fame career.

Interestingly enough, the Bradys made their remarks on a podcast hosted by Dell and Sonya Curry, the similarly proud parents of NBA stars Stephen and Seth.

“Now that he’s moved on, it’s kind of fun. We get to see some different sides of the world,” Brady Sr. said on the Curry’s “Raising Fame” podcast. “We don’t get down to Florida very often, so it’s pretty cool.

“… I think he’s going to be a little bit reinvigorated,” Brady Sr. continued. “After 20 years, things can get a touch more boring.”

Brady Sr.’s recent remarks follow his ominous prediction about his son’s potential departure from the Patriots. All the way back in 2015, Brady Sr. envisioned an ugly divorce between his son and the Patriots.

“It will end badly,” Brady Sr. told New York Times Magazine. “It does end badly. And I know that because I know what Tommy wants to do. He wants to play till he’s 70.”

It’s a matter of debate whether the Brady-Patriots split ended as badly as Brady Sr. predicted, although it has elicited some pretty strong reactions within the team’s fan base.

That being said, it goes without saying the split following a dynastic run that included six Super Bowl victories will go down as one of the most stunning player departures in NFL history. What’s done is done, though, and to riff on Bill Belichick’s legendary one-liner, it’s “On to Tampa” for the Brady family.
