Among them: Malcolm Butler’s Super Bowl LII benching, which was discussed ad nauseam in the aftermath of the New England Patriots’ season-ending 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in February.

After that game, Brady expressed his support on social media for Butler, who was relegated to the sideline for reasons that have yet to be properly explained.

On Monday, at the urging of interviewer Jim Gray, the quarterback shared his thoughts on coach Bill Belichick’s decision not to play Butler against the Eagles after the cornerback had led all Patriots defenders in snaps played over the previous 18 games.

When the news first broke, Jerry Jones Jones put the brakes on it being a done deal.
