Tom Brady still has a grudge with Max Kellerman for 2016 ‘cliff’ comments

first_imgThe words were absurd then, and they’re still absurd now. It’s one thing to say Brady’s numbers might decline as he gets older.

He’s also made three Superbowls appearances (winning two) and won two MVP awards since Kellerman’s comments in 2016.last_img read more
