Tom Brady has already played catch with the Lombardi Trophy, tossing it underhand to tight end Cameron Brate during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers boat parade following their Super Bowl title. 

But the great ones are always pushing themselves further, and Brady wants to evolve as well. So his New Year’s resolution this year very specifically involves the Lombardi Trophy.

“I do think what I’d like to do is complete an overhand toss with the Lombardi Trophy,” he told Jim Gray on his weekly Let’s Go podcast (h/t Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times.) “None of this Patrick Mahomes underhand throw that he always does.

Earlier this year was not a very good start to the year, and it didn’t look very good.
