BOSTON (CBS) — There was a lot of respect flowing after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, with two of Kansas City’s biggest stars heaping a ton of praise on Tom Brady.
After Brady won his seventh Super Bowl title on Sunday, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce filled their brief moments with the Buccaneers quarterback with a whole lot of respect.READ MORE: Northeast Metro Tech Football Player Seriously Injured During Saturday Game
Mahomes called Brady a “legend” when the two met on the field after Tampa’s 31-9 victory. Brady let Mahomes know that he is a “stud” and told him to keep in touch.
Kelce was just as complimentary when he crossed paths with Brady.
“I had a feeling you’d figure it out. Congratulations, big guy,” Kelce told Brady. “Congrats on seven.”

Brady has had some pretty epic battles with Mahomes, two of which have come in the playoffs. Mahomes is 6-2 in the postseason in his young career, with Brady responsible for both of those losses. In addition to Sunday’s Super Bowl victory, Brady beat Mahomes in the 2018 AFC Championship game while with the Patriots.MORE NEWS: Tyngsboro Woman Seriously Injured After Hitting Pole In NH Rollover Crash
Brady did have a little on-field spat with Kansas City’s Tyrann Mathieu during the game, but he reportedly text the Chiefs safety to apologize for whatever he said to him after the Super Bowl.
