Tom Brady sprinted sideline to sideline alongside fellow quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Ryan Mallett following the seventh day of New England Patriots training camp Friday.

Despite turning 36 on Saturday, more than a decade older than both of his backups, the Patriots' franchise quarterback was able to keep pace with the others, even saving enough energy to sign autographs afterward for fans.

Kind of like Tebow, whom Brady seems to be helping learn New England's offense.

"We have good conversations," Brady said. "He loves playing football and that's usually the type of guys who do well here."

Tebow is relishing the opportunity.

"Working out here every day together and trying to push each other," Tebow said. "It's awesome because you're getting to work with one of the best of all time."
