Tom Brady continues to add to his team in Tampa Bay, but his latest addition isn’t a new receiver or even a player.

Brady’s oldest son Jack, 13, is working with the Buccaneers this summer as one of the team’s ball boys. The elder Brady shared pictures of his son working on Instagram earlier this week.

“Buccaneers got a new ball boy this week…,” Brady wrote in one Instagram story with a picture of Jack with Brady and the Buccaneers.

“He takes his summer job and every rep very seriously…,” Brady continued in another post. “…Just like his dad!”

With the Buccaneers holding joint practices with the Titans this week, Brady crossed paths with former teammate Mike Vrabel, who’s now the head coach of the Titans. Vrabel used the opportunity to make a joke at Brady’s expense.

“Jack Brady talking with his favorite former Patriot. Also pictured, Tom Brady,” Vrabel jokingly wrote in a tweet.

Following one of the joint practices, Brady ran sprints with his son. Having his son at practice is special to Brady.

“It’s great. He’s at a good age,” Brady told reporters. “The more I get to do with him, the better it is. We have a great time together, and it’s really a treat to have him here. He thinks it’s fun, but it’s way better for me having him out here. It’s really, really cool.

“He’s just a great kid. I don’t want to blow his head up too much. He’s probably going to read this. Just a real special kid. It’s fun to be with him. He’s good with everything. Let’s run, let’s go on the boat, let’s golf, let’s ride bikes. I mean, he’s pretty cool with anything.”

This week’s appearances at Buccaneers practice isn’t the first time this year Jack’s gone viral on social media. Following the Buccaneers’ NFC title win over the Packers, Brady went over to the stands to share a moment with Jack.
