The future Hall-of-Famer broke down when recalling his draft day experience. The interview was part of "The Brady 6", an ESPN documentary about the 2000 QB draft class and how Brady became king of it.
Brady stopped for several seconds, lowered his head and began to cry.
"It was just a tough day, you know?" he continued. "I just remember being there with my mom and dad."
Brady's chin continued to quake. He paused again to gather himself.
"Sorry about that," Brady said. "You know, they were just so supportive of me. They take it as emotional as I do. Finally, when the Patriots called, I was so excited. I was, like, 'I don't have to be an insurance salesman,' you know?"
