Tom Brady tried to recruit LeBron James on Instagram

If Brady had his way, LeBron would be on the field this Sunday.

Tom Brady was caught fangirling over LeBron James on Instagram this week, jokingly offering the NBA forward a spot on the Patriots:

The quarterback left a comment on LeBron’s Instagram post, saying “Damn bro come play tight end you and Gronk would be unstoppable!!!!”

Picturing The King on the field alongside Gronk and Brady seems like the sports lover’s ultimate fantasy, but it’s probably beyond the realm of possibility for the NBA forward, who’s turning 34 in December. James did play some football — receiver — in high school.

You can’t blame Brady for asking though– even the GOAT needs help sometimes!
