HOUSTON — For Maurice Jones-Drew, there is no debate: Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time.

As such, the former NFL running back likes the New England Patriots’ chances this Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI at NRG Stadium.

Jones-Drew, who chatted with’s Rachel Holt on Friday on Radio Row, also has an appreciation for Brady silencing his critics after being overlooked in the 2000 NFL Draft, as the former Jacksonville Jaguars Pro Bowler often was glanced over during his playing days.
