The NFL said on August 28 that Tom Brady is the best football player of 2022, and now everyone is wondering if he had plastic surgery. He said on the same day that he was taking a leave of absence from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the start of this month, and the Internet went crazy with jokes about him. The quarterback agreed with coach Todd Bowles about his time off.
Some people thought it was to get a better balance between work and life, while others thought he was on the Masked Singer. Each theory was proven false, and Brady finally talked about his 11-day break in a press conference. “Man, I’m 45 years old. A lot of stuff is going on. So, you have to figure out life as best you can, and it’s a process that never ends, “he said in a video that TMZ Sports got their hands on.
Fans immediately reacted to his new look on Twitter, with many noticing his “new hair and chiseled cheeks,” as one user put it, by posting a scene from Legally Blonde that made it sound like the athlete had plastic surgery. Many people kept playing on this stereotype, and one woman said that this must be why he left. The tweet said that he looked like “handsome Squidward.” She then put a picture of the athlete and a cartoon next.

One person praised the player. He said that Brady had finally said something that people his age could understand.
That one time Tom Brady actually said something relatable to me and every single person I know my age.
