Love him or hate him, Tom Brady is undoubtedly one of the best—if not the best—quarterbacks ever to play in the NFL. But no one could have predicted his extraordinary success after he was drafted in the sixth round. Even Brady was prepared for a career outside of football.
BroBible dug up an old Facebook post from Brady, where he posted his résumé coming out of college.
With his 3.3 GPA and several academic honors, Brady was an excellent college student outside of football. He had years of proven work experience culminating in an internship at Merrill Lynch, which would have made him a great entry-level candidate for any financial institution.
Imagine. Tom Brady, Financial Analyst.
He even got his hands dirty working for a construction company and worked security at an Ann Arbor summer festival.
Fortunately for Patriots fans, and unfortunately for the rest of the league, instead of settling into a desk job, Brady got his chance to play in the NFL. Maybe he’ll put some of his financial skills to use when he retires in 10 or 20 years.
