LOUISVILLE – Who says there’s bad blood between New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his former backup, Jimmy Garoppolo?
They appeared to be brothers in arms Saturday, hours before the Kentucky Derby. Brady shared a group photo of himself on Twitter at Churchill Downs with Garoppolo, who now plays for the San Francisco 49ers, and other snazzy-looking representatives of the NFL.
Among the players in attendance were Jacoby Brissett, Brian Hoyer and Matt Cassel, along with Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury and former New England Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel, who now coaches the Tennessee Titans.
Brady’s Twitter message was: “Insert gif of me yelling Let’s Go below.”
Also spotted at the 145th annual Run for the Roses were Brady’s coach, Bill Belichick, and the coach of their Super Bowl opponent, the Los Angeles Rams’ Sean McVay, who had his picture taken with general manager Les Snead.
Brady and Garoppolo, who reported simmering tension led to the latter’s trade to the 49ers in 2017, weren’t the only NFL quarterbacks standing out in the crowd. Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers and a heavily bearded Baker Mayfield of the Cleveland Browns were there, too.
