Tom Brady Gave Bucs Teammate An “Uncomfortable” Massage

May 27th, 2023

Tom Brady is known for being hands-on with teammates, but at least once it didn’t go so well.

As Joe wrote weeks ago when it was shared here that Ko Kieft has a barefoot pregame ritual Tom Brady made fun of, this is the time of year when Joe catches up on podcast listening from all corners of the planet.

That included The Beer Money Podcast co-hosted by a good friend of former Bucs guard Ali Marpet.

Marpet was a guest and took a few light-hearted questions. One was about The Goat himself.

“What’s the most uncomfortable thing that Tom Brady has done in front of you?” Marpet was asked.

After an awkward pause, Marpet gave his answer.

“Neck massage,” Marpet replied. “He was trying to help. To be fair he was trying to help, my neck was messed up, but (pause).”

Joe has a visual of Marpet in pain and Brady insisting Marpet sit down while he grabbed a bottle of avocado oil and got to work.

The anecdote made Joe wonder how often Brady worked on Antonio Brown’s ankle or Rob Gronkowski’s bad back.

    Have you all seen that video of Trask walking between Mayfield and Wolford in an OTA? Damn, Trask looks like a monster next to them. What’s with all these tiny quarterbacks?

    This report made me moist 😂

    Deshaun Watson on line 2, Mr Brady.

    A true leader, teammate, and champion of champions!

    Funny Hunter, but you sure it wasn’t Robert Kraft?

    He only used extra virgin.

    Let me guess…You were a huge Mike Glennon fan, not because he was good, but because he was tall, right? Did you badmouth the Antoine Winfield Jr. pick because he was “too short”?

  10. Who Says Says Can't Say Says:

    I didn’t know Tom Brady was gay but now it is all making sense.

  11. Mike C Says:

    Joe in Michigan, hight is a more important to the QB position to be fair, But yes your point of hight doesn’t equal success is true.

  12. Mike C Says:

    The psychology adds up, overcompisation in professional life to cover “flaws” in one’s personal life.

  13. Bucky Says:

    What kind of headline is this Joe, come on

  14. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Tame compared to Jerry Jones announcing he wanted some Gloryhole…

  15. WillieG Says:

    Geez, it’s just a neck massage. It’s not like they were naked, playing Barry White music, and all alone in a hot tub. If a friend of mine had severe neck pain and I thought I could help, I would. I’d prefer it if that friend was a hot blond, but if I had to help a dude friend, I would. Maybe. 😂

  16. Lovelorn For Brady Says:

    *deep sigh*

  17. Nancy Cohen Says:

    why all these disrespectful comments about Brady Hell he changed Bucs culture to a winning team first year he brought with the help of his teammates a Super Bowl and the following year they won the divisional and was very close to winning the Eagles and getting to another Super Bowl how quickly the fans forget because he had a bad year your throwing him under the bus how about showing respect and appreciate what he brought to a losing team.

  18. Crickett Baker Says:

    There seems to be a lot of hostility here today.

  19. BA’s Red Pen Says:

    “Hey Ali, if this doesn’t work my friend Bob knows a place.” TB12 (allegedly)

  20. BringBucsBack Says:

    A little lower, Tom.

  21. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    ^^^ 😂

  22. Rod Munch Says:

    But Tom Brady is so handsome, it’s almost like a hot chick is doing it.

  24. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    LOL, they are mocking Tom Brady with Taylor Swift.
    If he gives her a massage, I will pay to see it!
    Ali Marpet …….. Not so much.

  25. Rod Munch Says:

    I think Ali Marpet getting a neck massage from Ryan Jensen would be a lot more uncomfortable for everyone.

  26. Buccos Says:

    I think Tom might very well go both ways. I mean he is a pretty boy and he is into fashion, he divorced a super model, he gives other guys massages. I mean come on, follow the bread crumbs

  27. Hunter's Crack Pipe Says:

    Rod Munch Says:
    “I think Ali Marpet getting a neck massage from Ryan Jensen would be a lot more uncomfortable for everyone.”

    But only fair. “Turnabout is fair play.”

  28. Ellen M Nenno Says:

    I think the player who got the massage…Marpet…is insecure and Tom Brady knows who he is and it is secure in that. Tom Brady doesn’t have to question his masculinity and is comfortable giving a teammate a neck massage who then turns around and raises questions since he was uncomfortable. Marpet’s problem, not Brady’s. And this story has no merit to begin with, in my opinion.

  29. Steve Garner Says:

    I have continued to follow Joe the past three years, yes because Brady was the
    quarterback. Like millions of Brady supporters, we are now moving on from the Bucs. Joe, your stories are sic. I won’t miss your attempts to be funny, cute and sarcastic. Brady gave you everything he had and more. Drop him from your thoughts, and innuendos. You obviously have an ax to grind. Good luck all.

  30. Oxycondoms Says:

    Im always the last to realize when someone is gay

  31. Hunter's Crack Pipe Says:

    Goodness, some people can’t take a joke. 🙄

  32. David Says:

    Wow, the comments are pathetic and pretty ridiculous. Oh no… Another man touched my neck, this must be gay. 😂

  33. TampabayDJ Says:

    Geez you all really think Brady is like that ? Pretty messed up IMO. Same people who would pay money 💲 for Brady’s used jockstrap. If Brady was like that , he would be like that and not give a flying f— . Same guy that was didn’t want Azz sweat from Jensen or any other Center he played with. He was most likely either playing around or actually trying to help someone who he considered a friend. Not like they were in the sweaty sauna or something strange like that. Dude gave us 3 of the greatest seasons and memories of all time.. Bet none of you would say anything to Carl Nassib to his face ! Go Bucs and go Brady

  34. Buccos Says:

    Thank God some of these Pat fans are starting to leave our site. Don’t let that door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya

  35. Rod Munch Says:

    This is like when you watch old James Bond movies, or pretty much any action movie from the 60s and 70s, and they’re always members of an men’s only club, and they always have a locker room scene where some old guy is giving everyone massages. As a kid it always seemed really gay to me, but as an adult, it’s wayyy more gay. But they’re just some men, touching men, having a good time without those nasty women around, so lather me up Lou, it’s time for my rubdown.

  36. David Says:


    Dude, you are sounding really insecure.
    I get a massage every two weeks for years. I like a deep tissue massage to work out the knots because I do a lot of running kayaking and golfing.
    I obviously prefer a female and I have two that I always try to schedule but when they aren’t available there’s a guy who is my third choice because the rest of the women cannot give a good deep tissue massage.

    There is nothing even remotely close to being gay about it. If it is then almost every football, baseball, hockey, basketball player and MMA fighter, you know must be gay because most of their massages come from men.

  37. Buccos Says:

    May I ask you how you know that all of these athletes get massages from “mostly men” because I have never heard this before. I don’t think DeShaun Watson was getting massages from men. No one questions his sexuality

  38. I’m not tired anymore because we just won the Super Bowl! Says:

    No respect. Dont diss the man who won you a Super Bowl year one of his contract. Let alone it’s the goat! Some people just yap to yap. Please don’t disrespect your elders. Go Bucs!

  39. Wild Bill Says:

    Haha! Dam slow news day for crap like this. Joe’s are getting desperate. I much prefer a hot looking female masseuse. Got to admit Tom can look a little prissy sometimes. And Giselle always looked a little dog faced masculine. And she did kick his ass to the curb! Maybe Joe is onto something here.

  40. Jonbucfan Says:

    I actually really liked getting Massages from Tom, especially the kiss on the lips at the end! We used to call that a “Happy Brady Ending”

  41. David Says:


    We’re talking about therapeutical, injury preventing, deep tissue, sports massages. Every team employees people to do this. Most of them are men. I live down near IMG Academy, there are some great sports massage therapists in the area. In fact, many buccaneer, and lightning players have come down this way for a treatment. Most of them are men, not all, but most. Probably a strength thing because men and women are different after all. LoL.

    Everyone else seems to be automatically thinking about some lame Asian massage parlor that rubs lotion on you and then gives you the Robert Kraft/ Deshaun Watson special

  42. Rod Munch Says:

    David – First off, you’re clearly an idiot. You see, dummy, comparing Brady to James Bond (who isn’t real BTW) was a compliment. Second off, while it IS very gay they like to get rubdown from men, it’s not actually gay. Do you get it, dummy? Of course not.

    As for your groomer speech about being insecure, save it for NAMBLA meeting. I’m not a 12-year old boy, and it’s not going to work on me.

    God bless.

    I needed this laugh… Brady always team first….
