Tom Brady seems to have had a rough day in court Wednesday– if you judge by his courtroom portrait.

A sketch of the beleaguered quarterback looking frustrated, gaunt, and, oh, about 70 years old made the social media rounds after his trip to a Manhattan federal courthouse. Brady hopes to resolve the stalemate over Brady’s Deflategate punishment.

A widely circulated tweet by Jeff Israel asserted that the image was “no doubt the worst sketch of Tom Brady ever created.’’

The artist was not immediately available for an interview Wednesday.
