New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appeared on CNBC’s The Squawk Box and of course the subject of Johnny Manziel was brought up by the host Joe Kernen. Brady was asked about Manziel’s showboating and what was Brady has done in the way of flaunting, so Brady paused for a bit and responded with this:
“I get pretty emotional. I have a lot of respect for the teammates, for my teammates, for my organization, and certainly for other guys in the NFL. There’s not a guy playing in the NFL who hasn’t earned the right to be here, and who isn’t supremely talented. He’s probably been the best athlete in his high school class, in his elementary school class. So when you look across the ball you have respect for those guys, and you treat them with respect because football’s a physical game. And as RKK [Patriots owner Robert Kraft] would say, if you’re a turd, it’s going to come back to you.”
The whole interview is pretty good and can be seen here.
