The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, 45, can be seen posing in pair of brown boxers from his athleisure line Brady Brand in a mirror selfie shared to his Instagram on Monday. The picture was all part of a bet with his Brady Brand clothing line, which reminded him that he said back in June 2022 that he would recreate some of the underwear models' photos if his tweet got 40,000 likes. "Did I do it right? @Edelman11 @RobGronkowski @bradybrand 😬😬," he captioned the snap, asking his friends and fellow former NFL players Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski if he had nailed the shot. In the picture, Brady can be seen posing on the edge of an unmade bed with a view of palm trees and the ocean in the background.
