Tom Brady’s life is pretty busy, what with all the winning. But when he has some downtime, he evidently writes Hall of Fame recommendations for opposing players.

Just ask Jason Taylor, formerly of the Miami Dolphins, but the defensive end/linebacker who also spent time with the Washington Redskins, Dolphins (again), New York Jets and Dolphins (a third time).

Taylor was “floored” to learn Brady had written a letter endorsing his candidacy into the Hall of Fame, per Talk Fame Sports.

And this is apparently the letter:

In the reported letter, Brady apparently details the extent the Patriots were forced to prepare for Taylor as “one of the most dominant defenders for 15 seasons.”

He later noted the Patriots would spend “hours” prepping for Taylor and “Jason is one of (the all-time best).”

Just another example of just how much of a quality guy Brady is.
