How Tom Brady's ex-Patriots teammates reacted to QB's goodbye video

How Tom Brady's ex-Patriots teammates reacted to QB's goodbye video

Now that Tom Brady has been gone for three weeks, he figured it was time to say goodbye Monday.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback posted a tribute video to the New England Patriots on Instagram, thanking the fans and players for 20 years of memories.

If Brady's former teammates are salty about the QB joining the Bucs in free agency, they certainly didn't show it publicly. A host of current and former Patriots players paid their respects to Brady in the Instagram comment section.

Here's a brief rundown:

- Quarterback Jarrett Stidham: "TB!"
- Retired tight end Ben Watson: "Love you bro. As crazy as it was, I’m grateful for last year. Salute"
- Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu: 🐐🙏🏾 (Goat emoji; prayer emoji)
- Current Raiders offensive tackleTrent Brown: "Love ya 12"
- Offensive guard Joe Thuney: "The absolute greatest!"

Sounds like Brady's former teammates still respect the six-time Super Bowl champion.

In addition to New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell (goat emoji) and (randomly) Spanish soccer star Xabi Alonso (three clapping emojis), one of Brady's new teammates also chimed in: Bucs linebacker Devin White.

"Let’s keep it going," White wrote.

It's a bit strange to see Brady's former and current teammates crossing paths after he spent two decades with one team. But there will be a lot to get used to as the 42-year-old embraces his new "challenge."

Brady's wife posted a heartfelt tribute to the city of Boston in an Instagram post featuring photos of their three children (one of whom Brady had with his previous wife, Bridget Moynahan).

What a ride the last decade has been. Boston has been so good to us and will always be in our hearts. We will forever have wonderful memories. Our kids were born and raised there and we have made special friendships to last a lifetime. I’ll miss our friends, the beautiful change of seasons and the rides to the stadium to go cheer for Tom and the Pats. Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of my husband and our family throughout all these years. We will miss you! ❤🙏 Quanta transformação que aconteceu na minha vida nessa última década. Boston foi muito acolhedora conosco e estará sempre em nossos corações. Nós teremos para sempre memórias incríveis. Nossas crianças nasceram e cresceram lá e fizemos amizades especiais para o resto da vida. Vou sentir saudades dos nossos amigos, das lindas trocas de estações e de todas as nossas idas ao estádio para torcer pelo Tom e pelo Pats. Agradeço a todos que apoiaram meu marido e minha família por todos esses anos. Vamos sentir saudades!

"Boston has been so good to us and will always be in our hearts," Gisele wrote. "We will forever have wonderful memories. Our kids were born and raised there and we have made special friendships to last a lifetime.

"I’ll miss our friends, the beautiful change of seasons and the rides to the stadium to go cheer for Tom and the Pats. Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of my husband and our family throughout all these years."

Gisele had spent over a decade with Brady in the Boston area after the two married in 2009. The family put their Brookline, Mass., home on the market last August in one of the first signs that Brady wouldn't be back in New England.

Gisele probably isn't complaining that she'll get to spend more time in sunny Florida. Brady reportedly also chose the Bucs with family in mind, spurning the Los Angeles Chargers because they were too far away from the family's home base in New York.

Tom Brady leaving Patriots has NFL Twitter, Instagram in a frenzy

Tom Brady won't be on the New England Patriots in 2020, and the sports world is trying to process the news.

The 42-year-old quarterback announced Tuesday on Twitter and Instagram he'll continue his "football journey" elsewhere and leave New England in free agency.

It's the biggest development of the NFL offseason -- indeed, in the entire sports world -- that has major ramifications for the entire league.

Several of Brady's now-former teammates already have reacted, including quarterback Jarrett Stidham, who joined wide receiver Jakobi Meyers and safety Patrick Chung in wishing TB12 well on Instagram.

Former Patriots wide receiver (and noted Brady supporter) Antonio Brown also chimed in with the "GOAT" emoji, while big names from across the sports world -- Kevin Durant, David Beckham and Deion Sanders, to name a few -- also commented on Brady's Instagram post.

That's former Patriots teammates Demaryius Thomas, Rob Ninkovich, Lonie Paxton and Stevan Ridley showing Brady love, in addition to good friend Mark Wahlberg.

On Twitter, ex-Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis gave Brady some pretty high praise:

Former Patriots QB and 98.5 The Sports Hub co-host Scott Zolak sent Brady his regards, as well, drawing a response from the GOAT:

Not every current or former Patriot took Brady's departure in stride, however. Here's Patriots cornerback Jonathan Jones:

Patriots fans probably agree with you, Jonathan.

As for where Brady will play next? Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu has a theory.

There figures to be plenty more reaction to this massive story -- Brady hasn't even revealed where he's playing yet -- so stay tuned for more.
