‘A major loss’: Zdeno Chara bid farewell to Tom Brady on Instagram

Zdeno Chara became the latest local star to say goodbye to Tom Brady when the 14-year Bruins veteran posted a photo to Instagram Sunday.

“It’s with sadness and joy I find myself reflecting on the news of my friend and sports legend @TomBrady moving on from the @Patriots,” Chara wrote, sharing a photo of the pair from the September grand opening of Brady’s TB12 store in Boston.

When the photo was initially taken, the pair, who had been two of Boston’s longest-tenured active athletes, shared it to their own social media channels with quips about sticking together as athletes over the age of 40.
