Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Pays Tribute To Tom Brady With 12 Billboards In Boston
On Thursday, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft publicly honored his former quarterback with a billboard.
After 20 years in a Patriot uniform, quarterback Tom Brady left to take his talents to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Kraft is a big fan of the long-time quarterback and showed a tribute to his former franchise QB with 12 different billboards in honor of the number 12 that Brady wore during his time in New England.

The billboard states “Thank you, Tom. The greatest of all time! With love, the Kraft family and the New England Patriots.”
The close relationship between Kraft and Brady is one of a kind. The Patriots owner stated that the quarterback is someone he loves like a son after he found out that Brady was leaving on Tuesday.
“How do I possibly sum up the depth of my gratitude to Tom Brady for what he’s given us these past 20 years, or the sadness I feel knowing it’s ending?” Kraft said in a statement. “I love Tom like a son and I always will. He has brought so much happiness to me personally and to all of our fans.”
“There simply will never be another Tom Brady,” Kraft said. “I now look forward to the day we can bring him back home to New England to celebrate his Patriots career, his endless achievements and his legacy as the greatest of all time. I love him very much.”
During his 20 years in New England, Brady led the Patriots to nine Super Bowl appearances and six Super Bowl titles. It was a run of success that will most likely never be repeated in NFL history.
