Superstar New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is reportedly set to hand off the 2015 Chevy Colorado he won following Sunday’s Super Bowl win to little known rookie Malcolm Butler.
“I’d love to [give Malcolm the truck],” Brady said on Boston sports radio station WEEI. “We’re going to figure out how to make that happen.”
Butler, an undrafted Patriots safety, made a game-winning interception on a Russell Wilson pass meant for Ricardo Lockette at the 1-yard line with a mere 20 seconds remaining the nail-biter of a game.
The Patriots took home the trophy with a 28 – 24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
Brady has won three Super Bowl MVP awards, tying Joe Montana’s NFL record
“It’s an incredible play, and not only that, that’s the type of play Malcolm makes for our team,” Brady told WEEI. “A guy like Malcolm who makes that type of quick, instinctive plays, that’s one of his strong suits. I don’t think it surprised any of us players because that’s what his skill set is.”
It was unclear as of Tuesday afternoon whether Butler would accept the gift, and if so, when and where the hand off would take place.
