During a recent interview with NBC Sports NFL analyst Chris Simms, Beckham Jr. reportedly spoke about how Tom Brady has been a mentor and big brother to him through the years. “He’s somebody who’s given me great insight. You know, whenever we wanted to chat, he’s been there as a mentor, as a big brother… I’ve literally felt like whether I know it or not. Like I as much as he was the guy that I watched all the time. And no, I didn’t use to like him because he was always winning.”
Beckham Jr. further discussed how Tom Brady beat the Rams and how he was looking forward to facing the star quarterback. “He beat my time. The Rams was the team that I loved and he beat the Rams. And it just was like, ‘there’s all that backstory behind it. But just to be able to sit there and we’re watching a one of a kind just to be able to watch them go to work. I mean I look forward to it.”
In 2019, Tom Brady shared his thoughts about Beckham Jr. “He’s a great player. I always wish him a lot of success.”
