Tom Brady made a young fan’s dream come true on Monday — he just happened to also be playing against him.

After the Patriots 34-13 win over the Bengals on Sunday, third-year Cincinnati running back, Joe Mixon, said that he was in awe of getting to meet Brady, but was “too scared” to ask the New England legend to exchange jerseys with him.

On Monday morning, Brady answered the call, tweeting a “great game” at Mixon with a note saying he would be sending a jersey his way.

Speaking with WEEI later in the day, Brady spoke about how much he values interactions with younger players that have grown up watching him.

“I’m gonna send him one because I saw that last night, and that’s pretty cool,” Brady told WEEI. “I feel the same way about so many of these young players that inspire me. That guy’s one of the great running backs in the league. There was a time when I was a young player and I looked up to so many guys. Now that I’m on the other end, I understand kind of how it goes.”

He continued:

“You see these guys playing on TV and then you meet them and it’s surreal. I feel like that still with guys. I’ve been around Joe Montana and Steve Young and Jerry Rice and Brett Favre — some of the greats and I feel the same way about some of them. It’s just part of our nature. I think the NFL has a great camaraderie. Guys, for as hard as we play and as violent as the game is, I think there’s a lot of respect that you really find in contact sports because you realize the level of commitment and dedication it takes.”

With Brady now nearly 20 years into his NFL career, the youngest generation of players in the league grew up watching him win Super Bowl after Super Bowl with the Patriots.
