If you want to ironically honor Tom Brady for his latest career “milestone”, here’s your chance.

The Patriots have unveiled a new Pro Shop exclusive t-shirt to commemorate Brady finally reaching 1,000 career rushing yards against the Vikings on Sunday. Yes, it’s a real shirt.

Noted clydesdale Brady reached the long-awaited 1,000 rushing yard mark in the first quarter against the Vikings on Sunday. You can tell by the big ol’ grin he flashed that he knew what he’d just accomplished.

“Hopefully I don’t go backwards next week,” said Brady after the game. “So, yeah, it was good to get the win, you know? That’s what I’m most excited about. So, happy we won, 9-3 and we’ve got a big one against Miami.”

Brady also made sure he didn’t go backwards on the final kneel-down:

Bill Belichick couldn’t wait to heap effusive praise on Brady for the hard-earned benchmark.

“Yeah, that’s really important to us,” the coach deadpanned. “It’s great.”

Can’t blame the Patriots for cashing in on Brady’s latest career achievement. Of course, the win was the most important part.
