When asked about it, Brady said he wouldn't have handled anything differently and learned a lot from it.
“I think it taught me a lot of things,” Brady told Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired Sunday. “It taught me about the people I could really count on, the people that really supported me, and it taught me a lot about life.”
Oprah asked Brady about a variety of topics besides Deflategate, including the rumors surrounding his relationship with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.

TB: “Umm…No. I mean, I love him. I love that he’s an incredible coach, mentor for me. And he’s pushed me in a lot of ways. Like everything, we don’t agree on absolutely everything. But that’s relationships.”
It's an interesting move by Brady to be so public with everything going on. He is typically a very private person and doesn't like to give a lot of personal details. But now that he's getting older, and his career is coming to a close, perhaps that will change.
