Tom Brady jokes about retiring after hitting major rushing milestone

But do you know what Tom Brady is not great at?

The 41-year-old quarterback seemed to be pretty elated at surpassing 1,000 rushing yards for his career, and now that he's won five Super Bowls, maybe he's now accomplished enough.

No, this time Belichick was asked to avail himself of the little telestrator inside his head and comment on Brady's nifty 5-yard run in the first quarter, which, in addition to giving the Patriots a first down, boosted the quarterback's career rushing total to exactly 1,000 yards. "That wasn't really a difference in the game", he said. Still, for a player who entered the game averaging 103.5 receiving yards per game, it was a notably sub-par performance. He can't risk negative yardage setting him back.

ESPN Stats & Information said that entering Sunday, Brady had lost 160 rushing yards to kneel downs since 2006, the year plays began being classified as such. Including playoffs, that is 579 touchdowns for Brady, which ties him with Peyton Manning for most all time.

PFF's Mike Renner published his first 2019 National Football League mock draft Monday, and he predicts the Patriots will select West Virginia quarterback Will Grier with their first-round pick (currently No. 29).
