Tom Brady made a few smooth, one-handed catches on his duck boat during the Patriots parade

Not bad for a quarterback.

During the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory parade Tuesday, Tom Brady proved Gisele wrong.

The Patriots quarterback showed that he can in fact both throw and catch the ball.

As Brady’s duck boat passed the WBZ broadcast booth near the Boston Common, anchor Steve Burton threw a football to the 41-year-old in what’s become something of a tradition. Using solely his right hand, Brady made the catch look easy, before delivering a tight spiral right back to Burton.

According to WBZ, the two also connected on passes as the quarterback rode by during the 2015 and 2017 Super Bowl parades (even if pass attempts to Brady haven’t gone as well during the actual games).


Brady also made a nifty back-handed catch with one hand on a pass thrown by a fan on the street during the parade.

Not bad for someone with three career receptions in his NFL career.
