German Super Bowl winner Sebastian Vollmer gave an emotional tribute to quarterback superstar Tom Brady as he said goodbye to the National Football League.
“He’s a lifelong friend. We can all count ourselves lucky to have lived in such an era of football, to have experienced it. Such athletes don’t come along every few years,” Vollmer told “SID” on Saturday evening.
The former offensive tackle won two Super Bowls with Brady for the New England Patriots, and the superstar later wrote the foreword to his book.
“He is one of the greatest athletes in the world that has ever existed,” said Vollmer. “For me, he’s in a row with Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali or Pele – even if that’s difficult across all sports. I feel good for him today and I’m happy too.”
According to ESPN information, Brady ends his unique career after 22 years in the NFL with seven Super Bowl rings. Most recently, he lost to the Los Angeles Rams with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Vollmer sees a great career off the field for Brady. “He has his fingers in a lot of things,” he said. “The TB12 way, the business, his clothing brand, his NFT stuff, he has a crypto company – he’s so multi-talented that everything he touches turns to gold .”
