BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady has accomplished all there is to achieve in the sport of football. It would make sense, then, if he felt compelled to seek out competition in a new area.
That’s the basis for his April Fools’ Day tweet, at least. The quarterback — who was drafted in the 18th round of the MLB draft in 1995 by the Montreal Expos — said Thursday that he’s starting it all back up again north of the border.READ MORE: Jewish Community Upset By Menorah Display In Medford: 'A Total Slap In The Face'
“With opening day today, excited to announce we’re bringing the Expos back to the MLB in 2022. Excited to be the first player/coach/owner in MLB history,” Brady tweeted.READ MORE: Lawrence Shooting Leaves 1 Dead
And of course, it wouldn’t be a Brady joke without an appropriately Photoshopped image.

The Expos, of course, ceased to exist back in 2004, due to a variety of reasons. The franchise moved to Washington, leaving Montreal without a baseball team for almost two decades now.MORE NEWS: Boston College And East Carolina To Meet In Military Bowl
Montreal would probably happily welcome back an MLB team, even if it meant having a 43-year-old at catcher. Unfortunately for them, Brady’s tweet is just a harmless little April Fools’ Day joke … we think.
