Brady had funny reaction to Fournette visiting Patriots

Earlier in the offseason, the New England Patriots showed interest in signing veteran running back Leonard Fournette. That was until their former quarterback, Tom Brady, foiled those plans.

Fournette visited the Parriots as a free agent one week after Brady "unretired" from the NFL and returned to the Buccaneers. When Brady caught wind of Fournette heading to his old stomping grounds, the seven-time Super Bowl champion wasn't thrilled. He called Fournette and said, "Man, what's your ass doing up there?"

Hear Fournette tell the story below:

One day after his trip to Foxboro, Fournette re-signed with the Bucs on a three-year contract worth $21 million. He called the decision a "no-brainer" once Brady announced his return.

It's understandable why Brady didn't want Fournette leaving Tampa Bay, especially for New England. The 27-year-old was a key part of the Bucs' Super Bowl run two years ago, and last season he tallied 1,266 yards from scrimmage while scoring 10 touchdowns in 14 games.
