Tom BradyÂ wasn’t heartbroken that he missed out on hanging with the Biebs. He’s just not about that life anymore.
Rob Gronkowski and a few other members of the New England Patriots spent some time with Justin Bieber after Doc Rivers invited them down to the Los Angeles Clippers’ locker room Monday night. The Patriots quarterbackÂ wasn’t around to mingle and take awkward photos with the pop star, though, because in true Brady fashion he was more concernedÂ about preparing for Sunday’s upcoming game against the San Diego Chargers and getting his rest.
“Iâm not doing anything like that,” Brady said during his weekly interview on WEEI’s “Dennis and Callahan” on Tuesday.Â “That time has come and gone in my life. I was doing a lot of Chargers work last night and sleeping. This is the first time Iâve been away from my kids for awhile, so I could finally get some decent sleep.”
While Brady wasÂ too busy enjoying his extra Z’s to hang with Bieber, he was happy his teammates enjoyed their day off, adding that those types of outings serve as bonding experiences.
“Those guys should go out and have fun, they are young guys and itâs a Monday night — itâs an off day today for the players, so that is the time to do some fun things,” Brady said. “Honestly, itâs something they enjoy. ThereâsÂ camaraderie when youâre with your teammates when youâre outside of the football building, and itâs good for those guys to do those types of things.â
