Tom Brady Gives Truck to Malcolm Butler

News: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady gave a new truck to teammate Malcolm Butler.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady completed 37 of 50 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns during Super Bowl XLIX; but the Patriots probably would have lost to the Seattle Seahawks if it weren’t for some late game heroics by Malcolm Butler, the cornerback who picked off a goal-line pass with 20 seconds remaining in the game.

So how do you say thank you for a game-winning interception? Shortly after Tom Brady was named MVP of the Super Bowl, a rumor started circulating that he had given Malcolm Butler his new truck:



Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named Super Bowl MVP for the third time in his career on Sunday night, an award that came with a big red truck as a prize.

Judging from paparazzi photos of Brady over the years, hes not lacking for transportation options to shuttle him around in his day-to-day life so he might find another use for this new set of wheels. During an interview on the Dennis & Callahan show on WEEI Tuesday, Brady talked about the play of our season that cornerback Malcolm Butler made to intercept Russell Wilson late in the fourth quarter and was asked if he might reward the undrafted rookie with the keys to the truck.

I would love to give him the truck. I would love to do that. I’m going to figure out how to make that work, Brady said.



Brady has not handed over the keys to Butler yet, and MSNBC notes there are certain legal procedures that have to be followed when gifting a car to someone. It should also be noted Brady didn’t bring up the idea of giving away his truck on his own. He was merely answering a question and may have accidentally been a little too generous.

We’ll have to wait and see if Brady actually hands over the keys to Butler, but judging by the quarterback’s reaction to the fourth quarter interception, he’s probably going to give his teammate a pretty nice thank you gift:
