Drake Maye got to meet Tom Brady. Here’s some of the wisdom he shared.

The past and the future of the New England Patriots collided over the weekend as Drake Maye got a chance to meet Tom Brady.

As seen in photos posted on social media, Maye was one of the high-profile NFL rookies present at a meeting with Brady set up by Fanatics over the weekend in Los Angeles. Maye, who was in town for the NFLPA’s Rookie Premiere, was spotted in photos alongside Brady — as well as music icon Jay-Z and Fanatics founder Michael Rubin.

Other rookies present at the meeting included Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels, J.J. McCarthy, Bo Nix, Malik Nabers and Brock Bowers.

So what did they talk about? Brady wrote on social media that “We talked about life and a little football.” However, a video posted by Rubin gave a glimpse into some of the “invaluable advice and knowledge” he shared.

“When you’ve got 53 guys on the team, you think it’s about you – it ain’t about you,” Brady said in the video. “It’s about us, and the biggest problem I see with a lot of the young players today, you guys are making it too much about ‘I’ and ‘me,’ because of social media, because of branding and all that. It’s fine. You’re not gonna win.

There’s a difference between being a star and being a champion,” he added.

“Every day of practice is important, ” Brady said later in the video. “You know why? Because when I was on the Patriots and we had 20 years of winning, every day was a big day. I treated a preseason game, I treated a regular season game like it was a Super Bowl. So when I got to the Super Bowl, it was just another day for me.

“There should nobody in your life that has higher expectations for you than you,” he added.

While Maye and Brady were part of a larger group, the two did pose for a separate photo that has also been making the rounds on social media.

“From the tape I’ve been watching I think they have a great opportunity ahead,” Brady wrote about the group of rookies. “See you all on the road this year and I can’t wait to watch your progress toward greatness with tremendous determination and discipline! LFG!”

After 24 seasons in the NFL (and two retirements), Brady has remained busy. The former quarterback has a number of business ventures and is gearing up for his first season as a color commentator for FOX.

Brady spent 20 seasons with the Patriots, winning six of his seven Super Bowls in New England. He’s set to return to Foxborough next month when he’ll be enshrined in the Patriots Hall of Fame as part of a special ceremony at Gillette Stadium.
