Yes Tom, we will remember you.

Whether he’s hyping up his fans and team with his postgame vlogs or supporting his wife’s new book with an emotional post, Tom Brady has been all about Instagram lately.

Brady shared a video on Monday, in which he ceremoniously passes the Madden torch to Steelers’ wide receiver Antonio Brown, the cover boy of Madden NFL 19.

While Sarah McLachlan’s “I Will Remember You” plays in the background, the video shows Brady removing his Madden 18 disk and putting it back into its case, which bears him as the cover. He grabs the new Madden NFL 19 game and pops it into the console, the Brady version of anointing AB as Madden royalty.

As hard as it must’ve been for Brady to pass on the torch to the newest cover boy, he’ll probably find some solace in his Madden 19 player rating– he holds a player rating of 97, the second-highest quarterback rating behind Drew Brees at 99.
