So it's not surprising that Brady wants to share the spoils of his MVP award with the Patriots' unlikely Super Bowl hero. While speaking on WEEI-FM in Boston on Tuesday, Brady said he wanted to give Butler the Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck he was awarded for being named the game's MVP.
"I would love to give him the truck," Brady said. "I would love to do that. I'm going to figure out how to make that work."
Butler intercepted a pass from
Brady praised Butler for making the interception, the first of his career.
"A guy like Malcolm who makes that type of instinctive, quick play, that's one of his strong suits," Brady said. "I don't think it surprised any of us players, because that's really what his skill set is. A lot of people didn't get to see that over the course of the season.
"It comes off as a great play, which it really was, obviously the biggest time of the year. Someone had to make a play. It happened to be Malcolm."
