Tom Brady offered his support to Drake Maye.

The former New England Patriots quarterback likes to share his wisdom with young people..

Tom Brady, the legendary quarterback who once faced a similar uphill battle as a New England Patriots rookie, has given his blessing to third-overall draft pick Drake Maye. Brady's endorsement could be a game-changer for the young signal-caller as he navigates the challenging path to becoming a starting NFL quarterback.

Brady, speaking to Yahoo Sports, expressed his admiration for Maye: "I'm very fortunate to be around him, and I like him a lot. I've heard great things about him. But his opportunity is really going to be what he makes of it, and how he wants to develop it."

Brady's words carry significant weight, especially considering his own journey from a little-known sixth-round pick to a seven-time Super Bowl champion.

He emphasized the importance of the people surrounding a young quarterback: "I was so fortunate. I looked at my career, I was looking at other competitors like Peyton Manning, Steve McNair, Vinny Testaverde, Brett Favre. I had coaches who were unbelievable."

Maye has been improving

Maye, at just 22 years old, is taking Brady's advice to heart as he works through training camp with the Patriots. He recently shared with ESPN his progress: "More and more, the huddle calls are coming together. I don't sound like I'm fumbling words in there. I sound like I know what I'm doing. Mixing up a bunch of letters, a bunch of numbers, it's getting that down pat."

Maye's confidence is growing, and his physical presence at 6'4" allows him to command the huddle effectively, ensuring his teammates are ready to execute each play.

Recently, a select group of NFL rookies, including Maye, had the chance to receive advice from seven-time Super Bowl winner. Among the attendees were top draft picks like Chicago Bears' Caleb Williams and Minnesota Vikings' J.J. McCarthy.

Brady didn't shy away from giving them a reality check: "The biggest problem I see with a lot of young players today: you guys are making it too much about 'I' and 'me' because of social media and branding and all that. It's fine. You're not gonna win. There's a difference between being a star and a champion."

Tom Brady's new roles

Brady's emphasis on preparation, dedication, and hard work is a testament to his own career and a roadmap for Maye. The former Patriot is now channeling these traits into his new role as Fox's lead NFL broadcaster, but he remains committed to mentoring the next generation of players.

"We talked about life and a little football," Brady shared on Instagram. "I'll always cherish the opportunity to talk to these young men who are about to start a monumental chapter of their lives."

As Maye continues to develop, Brady's endorsement and guidance could prove invaluable. The young quarterback is poised to make his mark, following in the footsteps of one of the greatest to ever play the game.
