At the end of this week the New England Patriots will make the trip to Detroit, Michigan for their third preseason game against the Lions.
Former Michigan quarterback Tom Brady will be in attendance with the team for the game, but told reporters on Wednesday that he’s unsure if he’ll be able to visit Ann Arbor.
The top player in the NFL in 2017 did however open up on a couple of his experiences at Michigan when he worked summer internships and jobs.
Brady said he worked in construction and worked at a golf course so he could play free golf, while also working at a festival at night.
“Yeah, those were good experiences when I was in Michigan in the summer,” Brady told reporters. “You know, you work different jobs and you get a scholarship check, but you’re trying to afford, like all of us were, our college experience.”
The former Wolverine signal caller spent four years in Ann Arbor and saw lots of game action in 1998 and 1999 before he was drafted by the Patriots.
At 40 years old, Brady said he’s been working on the training field and being in practice for a long time and it never feels like work for him, but those jobs were different.
“That definitely felt like work when you’re cleaning up industrial parks and scrubbing the tops of roofs and stuff like that,” Brady said. “Man, I was pretty tired at the end of those days.”
The Patriots take on the Lions at 7 p.m. on Friday.
