Brady posted a picture of his daughter, Vivian, wearing the necklace to his Instagram
While quarterback Tom Brady has (another) Super Bowl championship ring to look forward to after his win over the Los Angeles Rams, it looks like it won’t be the only new bling he’ll be wearing in the coming months.
Cordarrelle Patterson, a New England Patriots wide receiver, gifted Brady a custom necklace after they came out on the winning side of the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history, winning 13-3 over the Rams on Sunday.
According to TMZ Sports, the necklace is fitted with hundreds of diamonds forming Brady’s “TB12” logo and was made by Al the Jeweler, who is famous for crafting custom jewelry for athletes and musicians.
The gift was a genuine token of appreciation from Patterson, who spent three seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and one with the Oakland Raiders before signing with the Patriots last season, just in time to claim his first Super Bowl championship.
On Thursday, 41-year-old Brady posted a picture to his Instagram Story showing his daughter — Vivian Lake, 6, who he shares with wife Gisele Bündchen, 38 — wearing the expensive piece of jewelry.
“Thanks [Cordarrelle],” Brady wrote in the caption. “Look who loves the chain you gave me? What’s a dad to do?”
Now at the end of an $8.5 million contract, Patterson will be a free agent heading into the offseason but may end up sticking with the team thanks to his contributions on the field.
Heading into the playoffs this year, many believed the Patriots would come up short against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship. Brady had shown a slight decline in his performance this season, which led analysts to question whether the Patriots’ dynasty would be coming to an end when they met the favorited Chiefs, led by up-and-coming quarterback Patrick Mahomes (who would later be named MVP).
But the Pats beat the Chiefs in overtime, earning their ninth trip to the big game in the Brady era. They went on to keep the NFC Champion Rams from scoring even a single touchdown, only the second time that’s ever happened in Super Bowl history.
“We fought through it more than anything,” Brady told reporters after the game. “It’s unbelievable to win this game.”
Now Brady has a flashy new necklace to go along with his record six Super Bowl rings.
