Joe Montana rips New England Patriots for letting Tom Brady go

Joe Montana knows a thing or two about what Tom Brady just went through — as well as what’s still to come for the new quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

After spending 20 seasons as the leader and face of the New England Patriots football franchise, Brady was allowed to walk this month in NFL free agency. As absurd and surreal as the reality still is, No. 12 will be suiting up for an NFC South team down in Florida, wearing pewter, red, white, and orange this September — instead of dominating the AFC East from snowy Massachusetts and wearing his customary red, white, blue, and silver.
