NFL players are some of the best athletes in the world, but they aren't all that bright when it comes to the ramifications of covering up a logo. 

The same issues that presented themselves to Robert Griffin III when he drew over the Nike swoosh will be drummed up for Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady, who recently taped over the famous logo at a press conference. 

ESPN reports that Brady decided a little tape was in order for the NFL sweater he was wearing. Here's the tweet ESPN spotted from New England Patriots beat writer Shalise Manza Young:

Of course, this reminds us of the moment a couple weeks ago when rookie sensation Robert Griffin III headed out onto the field prior to the game with this on. He creatively wrote over the Nike symbol with the word "heart."

The result was RG3 possibly getting a verbal lashing behind closed doors and a promise from NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy that it wouldn't happen again.

Now this. 

As noted, Brady has a deal with Under Armour, so he is just being loyal to his brand. However, we have to say the same thing about this cover-up that we did for RG3's: This lends Nike far more publicity than if he would have just gone to the podium sans tape. 

Here we are reminding the world that the NFL is outfitted with Nike and not anything else. Taping the Nike swoosh made the image of the logo quite clear in all of our minds.
