Watch: Tom Brady Turned James Harrison Into An Admirer
You didn’t see this coming, but James Harrison is now a fan of the New England Patriots quarterback star Tom Brady. Well, it’s not like being a Brady fan is a hard thing.
Harrison and Brady weren’t quite happy seeing each other’s faces during the games. Harrison was the leader of the Pittsburgh Steelers defense, and decided to join the New England Patriots in the midst of the 2017. Harrison was more than ready to hate his quarterback friend, but once he got at the spot, he couldn’t do anything but admire the NFL star.
“I’m a Brady fan to now. To be honest with you, I wanted to hate this dude. The whole time I’m playing in Pittsburgh I’m like, ‘Alright, I hate Brady.’ Everyone’s like, ‘Aw he’s such a great guy, such a nice guy.’ We got [LeGarrette Blount], he came over and I’m like, ‘What’s up with Tom Brady?’ and he’s like ‘Aw man, he’s a great guy,’ and I’m like, ‘stop lying to me,’” Harrison said.
"I'm a Brady fan now; I'm not going to lie. I wanted to hate this dude. He's the ultimate teammate. … Tom is a great QB — the best ever."

“As soon as I get there, who is the first person I see smiling, happy face. I’m like, ‘Yeah he’s just doing this cause he got to do it right. Yeah, he’s just faking.’ So you watch how he move in the locker room, how he communicates with guys, different guys, guys that have been there forever, guys that are just getting there and dude he’s a great guy. He is the ultimate teammate,” he added.
Well, Harrison isn’t too far from the truth. Brady is an excellent person, and everyone in the NFL knows it. He’s a good player and an inspirational teammate. What more could you ask for? Playing with him is easy. That’s why this guy spend his entire career in the Patriots. He’s all about game and challenge.
