New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had a great tweet late Sunday afternoon.

The six-time Super Bowl champion reached a new deal Sunday with the Patriots, and will have a salary of $23 million this season.

Using his new deal to remind people just how far he has come, he tweeted a picture of his draft card when he was a sixth round pick in 2000. (RELATED: Tom Brady Practices With Suspended Teammate Josh Gordon)

It truly is amazing when you consider just how far Brady has come as a football player. He was never a star in high school, he was never a star at Michigan, he was barely drafted and now he has six Super Bowl rings.

If there was ever a shining example of what hard work and dedication can get you, Tom Brady is 100% it.

Now, he’s locked in with New England for a few mores years, got himself a nice little payday and he’ll start the season in about a month.

Even at $23 million for this season, he’s still wildly underpaid compared to what he could get on the open market.

However, we all know Brady is notorious for leaving money on the table to help the team. It’s just another sign of how selfless he is and how big of a drive to win he has.

I can’t wait to see what Brady does next, and there’s no question he’s a wonderful example to athletes everywhere.
