Tom Brady and Robert Kraft clearly don’t have bad blood… because the Bucs quarterback and Patriots owner just shared a moment in the bowels of Gillette Stadium, kissing before the team’s battle on Sunday Night Football.
TB12 will face his former team – in New England – for the first time since leaving for Tampa Bay before the start of last season.
Many football fans have wondered what the interaction between Brady and Kraft was and Bill Belichick would be like… would there be a grudge or a warm reaction?
Hours before kick-off, Tom and Robert met in a back hallway, spoke briefly and kissed before going their separate ways.

Of course, the Bucs won the Super Bowl last season – Brady’s 7th – as his former team struggled without him, going 7-9 with Cam Newton at the bar.
In the week leading up to tonight’s game, Belichick – who reportedly struggled with Brady during his later years in the NE – was hugely praising the GOAT
Despite the beef reported, Brady seems happy to be back, announcing his return to Foxborough on social media earlier on Sunday, saying … “It’s good to be back”
Kraft previously said the Pats plan to honor Brady ahead of what has become the most anticipated game of the 2021 NFL season.
Brady – a NE 6th round pick in 2000 – played 20 seasons with the Patriots… winning 3 NFL MVPs and 6 Super Bowls with Belichick and Kraft.
