Football played an important role in the life of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
He has been playing the game professionally for over two decades and has won seven Super Bowls.
That’s why it’s been hard for him to stay retired after their home playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams last season.
But in the 2022 NFL Draft, he will focus away from football.
However, as NFL insider Dov Kleiman shared, his activities will always be football-related.
As the NFL world today focuses on the NFL Draft, Tom Brady is busy filming his movie “80s for Brady” starring Rita Moreno, Sally Field, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.

Kleiman shared a photo of Brady on the set of the upcoming ’80s for Brady’ movie.
He is seen pictured with co-stars Rita Moreno, Sally Field, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.
Brady will star himself and produce the film through 199 Productions.
The on-the-road comedy is inspired by a true story of four best friends who went to Super Bowl LI and watched the New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons.
Chaos ensued as they navigated the festivities ahead of the big game.
There’s no word yet on the film’s release, but Paramount Pictures has already acquired the film’s worldwide rights.
The Unforgettable Story of Brady’s Draft Day
In his senior year at Michigan, Brady had a solid season, leading the Wolverines to victory in the Orange Bowl.
Despite this accolade, he did not register high on either team’s scorecard.
His performance at the Scouting Combine didn’t help his cause either.
Thus, teams moved on until the Patriots selected him with the 199th overall selection in the 2000 draft.
Six quarterbacks were selected before him.
Chris Redman won a Super Bowl, but as a backup quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens.
Spergon Wynn and Tee Martin have had largely uneventful stints in the NFL.
Marc Bulger had successful seasons, but injuries to the players around him derailed his promising career.
Giovanni Carmazzi has never played in a regular season game.
Finally, Chad Pennington had modest success against Brady, but shoulder injuries dogged him throughout his career.
