Tom Brady’s last pass thrown at Gillette Stadium was an interception caught by former teammate Logan Ryan of the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round of the 2019 playoffs.
“It’s funny,” Ryan, now with the Giants, said after New York’s practice Friday via the Associated Press’ Tom Canavan. “The ball was just laying around my house because I don?t really do a lot with my stuff, like I’m not egotistical and have just portraits of me all over the place in my house … so my kids, like, kick the ball around.”
Playtime was over, Ryan said, after he saw how much one of Brady’s autographed cards sold for. At that point, the ball found a temporary home out of reach on a shelf in his home.
The cornerback reached out to Brady during the offseason, and they agreed on a plan to auction off the ball to split between their respective charities.
It will be interesting to see who wants to bid for it.
‘Now, I don’t know who is going to want that ball,” Ryan said. “I don?t know if a Patriots fan wants his last ball ever thrown is an interception. I don?t know if a Titans fan is really going to pay. Like I don’t know what the Titans fan base, the media market, you know? So, I don’t know where it’s going to go.”
Ryan did have one prospective buyer in mind, though.
“Tom might pay to get rid of it,” Ryan said. “To burn it.”
