Brady, who won six of his nine Super Bowl appearances with the Patriots, left in free agency last March after 20 seasons with New England. He signed a two-year, $50 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On Sunday, the 43-year-old veteran leads the Bucs into a Super Bowl LV clash with the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs in Tampa.

“I’m so excited,” Kraft said. “We’ve had some great communications, and he is such a special human being. We were privileged to have him here for two decades, and he’s one of the finest human beings I’ve ever met. He knows how to lead, and I wish him well. I really hope he wins Sunday.”

Brady expressed his thanks for the “incredible support” he has received from the Patriots organization during his first season in Tampa.
