Look, I’m such a lazy bastard that I really can’t begin to figure out the research for this. But I’m going to venture to guess that there has never been a quarterback in NFL history who threw touchdowns to both a receiver and that receiver’s son later in his career.
There’s a chance that actually happens in the 2020 season. Because LSU tight end Thaddeus Moss, the son of Randy, is entering the NFL and could end up on the same team as Tom Brady, whether it’s in New England or elsewhere. He acknowledged that it would be quite a special moment if that happened.
“It would mean a lot,” said Moss (h/t Kyle Richardson on Twitter). “Just to catch a touchdown, period, in the NFL would mean a lot. But to catch it from Tom Brady, knowing that he threw a good amount of touchdown passes to my father, it would be a good story.”
Moss was also asked about what he remembers from following his father around during his time in New England. Well he was nine years old during the 2007 season, so he doesn’t remember much beyond the memories of the Patriots’ quest for a perfect season. But he did say he was star-struck seeing Brady in person back then.
It really sinks in when you see Thaddeus talk that Brady is still going as he gears up for his age-43 season. There’s still a chance that he ends up playing for another team, and now a chance that he gets to throw to Randy’s kid.
That would simply be another unfathomable accomplishment for the man who’s already established himself as the greatest ever. Brady’s longevity continues to be a major reason for that.
