When Tom Brady isn't winning Super Bowls or breaking NFL records, he spends his time trolling his teammates on social media. Patriots rookie defensive end Chase Winovich shared an inspirational quote from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" on Instagram along with a photo of himself sitting on the sidelines during the Patriots' preseason game against the Detroit Lions.
Brady saw the post and decided to leave a message for the 24-year-old Michigan product: "Study your playbook."
Winovich jokingly replied: "Yes, dad right away."
Winovich has played well in his short time at training camp, earning some slight praise from Patriots coach Bill Belichick.
"He's a rookie; he needs to work on everything," Belichick told reporters. "But Chase is tough, he runs well, he's got good size, good power. He had a very productive career at Michigan, and we're looking forward to seeing him out there in some game action, both on defense and in the kicking game."
