Tom Brady has seen his fair share of terrifying linebackers and defensive linemen in his day.

During his interview on Westwood One with Jim Gray in which he and Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald fielded questions from firefighters, Brady revealed the defensive player he feared most in his career.

"There's been a lot of them, Brady said." You know what the problem with those d-linemen is? They're all faster than me, because I'm pretty damn slow. But the one guy that I wouldn't want chasing me down would probably be Ray Lewis, because he played with a vengeance. When he got to me, he wanted to make sure he knew that he got to me, and he usually cleaned my clock pretty good. So he's the one who would probably be in my nightmares."

Ray Lewis probably is a popular choice among quarterbacks, so no real shocker there. However, Brady's preference for actor he'd most like to play him in a movie might be a bit more surprising.

"I'm going with Mark Wahlberg," Brady answered. "A Boston legend, Dorchester, just grind-it-out kind of guy, so he'd be my choice."

Sounds like Wahlberg has a gig lined up for whenever the TB12 movie begins production.
