As you’ve probably heard, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday night, for his work in the Pats’ 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks and, as part of the deal, he received a brand new truck.
Now, Brady says he’s considering giving the truck to Malcolm Butler--the cornerback who intercepted Russell Wilson to end the game--who, as a rookie, is presumably a little less set than Brady in terms of vehicles.
“I would love to give him the truck,” Brady told WEEI in Boston. “I would love to do that. I’m going to figure out how to make that work.”
Butler was certainly an unlikely hero for the Pats. He was on the bubble at the end of training camp back in August, but found a permanent place in Boston sports lore with 30 seconds left in the Super Bowl, when he stepped in front of the Seahawks’ Ricardo Lockette to secure the fourth championship of the Brady-Belichick era.
“A guy like Malcolm who makes that type of instinctive, quick play, that’s one of his strong suits,” Brady said. “I don’t think it surprised any of us players, because that’s really what his skill set is. A lot of people didn’t get to see that over the course of the season. It comes off as a great play, which it really was, obviously the biggest time of the year. Someone had to make a play. It happened to be Malcolm."
