While Brown's statement comes off as flippant bordering on disrespectful, Tom Brady issued a similar proclamation to owner Robert Kraft a decade and a half ago.
"I'm the best decision this organization has ever made," Brady said, via CSN New England.
After watching Brady capture four Lombardi Trophies and three Super Bowl MVP awards, we now know that his prediction was uncannily prescient. For a sixth-round afterthought, though, that vow had to have seemed brash at the time.
The Patriots will be satisfied if Brown comes close to replicating the success of Wilfork's career, if not Brady's.
