Tom Brady caused Patriots fans’ blood pressure to sharply rise Thursday night when he posted a nondescript, black-and-white, captionless photo of himself in a tunnel at an unidentified football stadium (later identified as Gillette Stadium) to his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
What did the photo mean? Was Brady walking away from something or walking toward something, and what did that symbolize? There’s finally an answer to the first question. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo reported Sunday morning the photo was a teaser for a commercial that will air during the Super Bowl between the Chiefs and the 49ers Sunday evening. The contents of the ad, however, have yet to be revealed.
