Super Bowl 2018: Tom Brady’s Trench Coat Sparks Spy Theories

Tom Brady arrived in a stylish grey trench coat ahead of his Super Bowl LII performance, and it lit Twitter aflame with theories of his potential double life as a spy.

Brady, 40, might be a well-established quarterback for the New England Patriots, but his trench coat, along with dark sunglasses and earbuds as he was escorted by security through the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Sunday, had many wondering about a possible shadow career.

While the athlete seemed cool and collected in his ensemble, Twitter couldn’t help but voice their opinions (and fantasies) about his wardrobe, suggesting he could be an “overconfident european assassin who dies in the last twenty minutes of an action movie.”

Others on social media made light fun of what the New England Patriots quarterback wore, suggesting he was attempting to sneak in snacks in order to avoid paying expensive concession stand prices.

Last year, Brady’s clothes also caught attention on social media when he took a seat on a bench for a moment and decided to keep his throwing arm limber by throwing an enormous jacket over himself.

It was the jacket that caught everyone’s attention as it appeared to be made for a man at least five times Brady’s size, creating an illusion that Brady could fit himself along three others inside of it.

These instances haven’t been the first time Brady has been slighted over his style. In 2016, he became the butt of jokes when he debuted a very Zach Morris ’90s haircut.
