Expectations must be tempered when a sixth-round draft pick tells the owner of the team something to the tune of, "you'll never regret picking me."
Well, unless that sixth-rounder's name is Tom Brady.
It's hard to believe 13 years have passed since the Michigan quarterback was taken by the New England Patriots at No. 199.
We've seen the San Mateo, Calif. native collect eight Pro Bowl nominations, two first-team All-Pro honors, two NFL MVP awards and three Lombardi trophies, just to name a few.
At age 35, the two-time Super Bowl MVP is a first-ballot Hall of Famer. He's got little left to prove to the game of football. But with five more years left on his contract, he still obviously has a lot to prove to himself.
We do not know what the future holds for No. 12. But we do know that he'll be a 40-year-old unrestricted free agent in 2018. And if that's when he decides to hang up his cleats for the final time, he'll have some great opportunities waiting for him.
What might they be?
Let's take a look at five prospective job titles Brady could hold once his playing days come to an end.
