Foxboro Mass --
Tom Brady said Monday something that all married men can relate to. He wants a kiss from his wife - the famous super model Gisele Bundchen whose new book comes out Tuesday. Brady is proud of his wife, but might care more about the kiss he receives Monday Night than the proceeds from Bundchen's book that go to charity.
"I think it's great. Obviously, it's my wife so I think very highly of her. Anything she does I want to support. I think everyone has a journey they go through - we all do. I am sure you guys do too. It's nice to document that. Hopefully, people can be inspired by reading certain things that you may not know about someone - maybe you project you may know but you really don't. You realize everyone goes through difficult things and obstacles that really shape who they are. I certainly have. She has. I am very proud of her writing those things down and sharing them with the world. Go buy it. All the money goes to charity for her clean water project in South Brazil. Hopefully, this gets me a kiss," Brady said
Even Tom Terrific has a softer side. Brady appreciated the question.
"That was awesome," Brady told Pats Maven in the locker room afterward.
At 6-4, Brady also thinks he can dunk. It was a pretty good day for Brady Monday.
CB Stephon Gilmore Motivated Against Miami Dolphins
Gilmore was motivated last week after giving up two touchdowns to the Detroit Lions. The Dolphins best receiver Kenny Stills caught only three passes for 40 yards. Stills did not catch a pass on Gilmore. Gilmore said he was impressed with the explosiveness of Colts WR T.Y. Hilton. The two were both selected in the 2012 draft. Gilmore in the first round and Hilton in the third round.
"It was a motivation for all of us to play good game," Gilmore said. "I am just happy with our performance - now we gotta tor try and do the same thing against the Indianapolis Colts," Gilmore said Monday. "We gotta to really dig in on the Colts because there are a lot of players we don't know."
Gilmore was happy that rookie corner J.C. Jackson recorded his first interception Sunday.
"He had made those plays in practice. He has got great ball skills. I am happy for him," Gilmore said.
Gilmore said he is happy to have WR Julian Edelman. Practice might be more difficult now given that Edelman often competes against Gilmore. The interview with Gilmore was interrupted when Julian Edelman slapped him on the back. Gilmore had first seen Edelman earlier in the day. The two have a bond - even a little emotion from the soft-spoken Gilmore who has great swagger.
"He's funny. He talks. I like that guy," Gilmore said.
Gronkowski (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Adam Butler (knee), Josh Gordon (hamstring), Eric Rowe (groin), Danny Shelton (elbow), Geneo Grissom (ankle), TE Jacob Hollister (chest), LB Brandon King (foot), LB Elandon Roberts (calf) were limited in practice Monday.
Random Note: Cordarrelle Patterson, who had a 55-yard touchdown catch Sunday in the Pats win over the Dolphins, finished with two catches for 54 yards because he fell down on a screen pass thrown and lost one yard.
"You can't ask me about that. It's embarrassing," Patterson joked in the locker room Monday.
Patterson is happy that Edelman is back. Though, Patterson is skeptical about whether Edelman can spell his first name correctly. Many leave out the Third R.
