Robert Kraft Gives Super Bowl LI Ring To Tom Brady’s Mother
Tom Brady is no longer the only member of his family with a Super Bowl ring.
After a long fought battle with cancer, which ran the course of the New England Patriots' 2016 season, Brady's mother, Galynn, was gifted a Super Bowl LI championship ring of her own from team owner Robert Kraft.
The gesture was much appreciated by Kraft's future Hall-of-Fame quarterback.
According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, Brady was truly touched by his owner's actions.
"He's been so supportive of my family and certainly everything my mom went through and knowing first-hand how families deal with it," Brady told ESPN on Friday when asked about the gesture. "He was always asking, 'How's mom doing? How is she feeling?' We didn't know up until the very end whether she was going to make it to the Super Bowl. She was a big inspiration for me, and RKK knew it. It was a great surprise to all of us when the ring showed up. She deserves it."
Galynn was able to be on site for the Pats' historic Super Bowl comeback and was a noted driving force for her son, throughout the course of his season.
