Winning the Super Bowl may not be new to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, but for his teammate Cordarrelle Patterson, it was a first time experience.
To commemorate and thank Brady for guiding the Patriots to another Lombardi Trophy, Patterson gifted him a diamond TB12 chain.

Call it over the top if you want, but this is a true and fun expression of gratitude from one teammate to another. It's also a nice break from the ring game for Brady, who's now collected an NFL record six in total.
Patterson was New England's swiss army knife in the 2018 NFL season. He pulled down 247 yards receiving and added 228 yards on the ground all while acting as the Patriots' return man. His size and surprising speed added an extra dimension to a potent New England offense that wound up needing just 13 points to win the Super Bowl.

Patterson is set to hit the free agent market after the Super Bowl win, but something tells me he'll be open to rejoining Tom Brady and the Patriots as they gear up for their run at what would be an NFL record seventh Lombardi Trophy.
