Scott Pioli joined Dale & Keefe on Tuesday and talked about Tom Brady’s time with the Patriots, saying the stars aligned when it came to drafting Brady and the dynasty that followed.
Pioli, who served as a Patriots executive from 2000-2009, said when the Patriots drafted Brady they had no idea about the greatness that was in store.
“We felt that Tommy had made enough progress and that he was going to be a player that was really going to be the future for us,” he said.
Pioli said his “aha” moment when he realized Brady is the greatest player in the NFL came during Super Bowl LI.
As for how Brady will do with the Buccaneers, Pioli is not as sure.
