It sure sounds like New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is pretty fired up that Antonio Brown is joining the defending Super Bowl champs.

NBC Sports' Al Michaels shared an awesome story before Sunday night's game between the Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers of Brady's reaction when team owner Robert Kraft informed him of Brown signing.

An invitation to stay at his house? Yeah, it definitely sounds like Brady is ready to get started with the 31-year-old wide receiver.

And who could blame Brady? Brown, after all, is one of the best wideouts of his era. He's averaged 114 receptions, 1,524 yards and 11 touchdowns over the last six seasons, all with the Steelers. Brown's addition to the Patriots roster gives Brady an absolutely loaded receiving corps, one that also includes reigning Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Demaryius Thomas, Phillip Dorsett and rookie N'Keal Harry.

Brown wasn't eligible to play Sunday night versus the Steelers, so we should expect his debut to come in Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins. Brady and Brown could start off their connection with a few touchdowns based on the way Miami's defense played in Week 1.
