FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Tom Brady was already the oldest player on the Patriots roster before he stepped out on the practice field for training camp Thursday.

He spent the abbreviated workout being constantly reminded he’s now a 40-year-old quarterback.

From a sculpture spelling out “G.O.A.T.” that was erected near the entrance of the practice field gate to multiple chants of his name to sporadic “Happy Birthday” serenades from spectators – everything revolved around No. 12 and his 40th birthday.
