Tom Brady did not resent San Francisco’s Dre Greenlaw for cheekily asking him to sign a ball following his team’s 35-7 defeat by the 49ers. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered the heavy defeat at the Levi’s Stadium Sunday with Greenlaw picking off the star quarterback.
‘He’s a good guy to be able to sign that ball after he didn’t throw them picks, big time so I appreciate it. ‘He’s the greatest, he’s the GOAT so I appreciate that. ‘I went like a little fan, like a little fan girl, I tried to soothe him up, make him feel better so I was like “you’re the greatest ever” all that good stuff but he is, he is.
The Niners linebacker tried his luck postgame as he went over to Brady and asked for his autograph… and the 45-year-old obliged. ‘The worst thing he can tell me is no. I was always told is you don’t ask you’ll never know,’ Greenlaw said to reporters after walking away with a signed football.
‘He was like “I appreciate it man, good job” and I was like he ain’t going to sign the ball. ‘Then Fred [Warner] came over and said “you get the ball signed?” and I’m just like yeah “you’ve gotta sign” and he was cool, no doubt.’ Brady threw two interceptions as the Bucs struggled against an impressive 49ers defense.
