BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady is not afraid. He’s not afraid of scary dogs, and he’s not afraid of being mocked by his teammates for posing with a dog collar.
The future Hall of Fame quarterback proved that by posing with a Doberman on the cover of VMAN magazine, a quarterly publication geared toward men. Brady appears on the cover letting out his bark next to the dog, and inside the magazine he poses while wearing a dog collar. In another photo, the dog appears to be taking a bite out of his golden right arm (we think it’s safe to assume there was some editing work done on this one, as Robert Kraft would be most unlikely to sign off on that one).
In the accompanying article, Brady discussed his future beyond football, a thought he still struggles to fully comprehend. But don’t expect a new web series to follow his Funny Or Die hit from earlier this year.
“I have to do something … I don’t know,” Brady said of his post-football life. “It’s hard to think about where my interests will take me. But [an actor] is not something that I’ve ever aspired to be. The only thing I ever wanted to be was a professional football player. It’s hard because I want to have four kids and I want to be a really good dad, too.”
Brady also opened up about his family life.
“I grew up [in] an environment where people weren’t afraid to express how they really felt or to express their emotions,” Brady said. “I’m very blessed to be able to do that because with my two boys — I kiss them a thousand times a day. My wife and I are very affectionate, it’s just part of our nature.”
Brady is no stranger to modeling (hello, goat picture!). He’s appeared on the cover of GQ, Details, Esquire, BestLife and TV Guide, in addition to the more appropriate ESPN and Sports Illustrated. The quarterback also said he admires the way his wife makes modeling look easy. We can’t necessarily say the same for him, but hey, at least he’s not afraid to take a couple of chances.
