Aaron Rodgers had the sports world talking when the reigning MVP made a bold statement towards Bears fans yelling that he ‘still owns’ them after he scored a touchdown during Sunday’s win vs. the Bears.
Outside of Bears fans, many loved Rodgers' fiery energy, including the GOAT himself, Tom Brady. During an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, the 44-year-old QB congratulated Rodgers and cracked a joke about the Packers QB being a ‘shareholder’ of the Bears.
"I wanted to say congrats to Aaron Rodgers," Brady said before discussing film of the Bears and Packers. "Obviously I know he's a great quarterback, but I guess he's now a shareholder of the Bears... I saw a clip of him really enthusiastically telling the crowd how happy he is to own Soldier Field. And that's really great stuff. He owns the Bucks now. Part-owner of Soldier Field. So, he's got a great career beyond football."
When asked what franchises he owns, Brady said he doesn’t own the Buffalo Bills yet, but when New York City was brought up, Brady couldn’t resist throwing some shots at the Jets.
"Oh, no," Brady responded with a tinge of playful disgust. "I'll just take the color green. I don't need the Jets. I'll just own the color green. I think that's a little bit better."
You could say Brady owns both the Bills and Jets, compiling a record of 32-3 against the Bills and 30-8 against the Jets.
Brady will have his chance to own a slice of Chicago along with Rodgers Sunday during the Buccaneers' matchup vs the Bears. Brady is currently 5-1 all time against Chicago.
