NFL legend Tom Brady texted Shedeur Sanders with advice after the college quarterback’s exploits over the weekend.
The 21-year-old Colorado talent threw for 510 yards and 4 touchdowns as HBCU stunned No. 17 TCU 45-42 on Saturday.
Sanders joined the Buffaloes from Jackson State along with his father and head coach Deion Sanders.
And his insane stats in Game 1 of the new season certainly caught the eye of legendary quarterback Brady.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion sent Sanders a simple three-word text message after watching the drama at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
Sanders revealed, “He texted me after the game, ‘Don’t be happy.’
“It was cool to hear from him that he’s still watching and stuff like that.”
Brady and Shadeur have worked together in the past, with the GOAT giving private tutoring to Sanders while he was at Trinity Christian High School.
He continued, “Working with him really helped me understand, ‘Don’t focus on the good things.'”
“We did it. Focus on the things we couldn’t do at a high level. So upgrade that and you have full armor everywhere.”

Fans were quick to comment on the GOAT’s words of wisdom, with one on X, formerly known as Twitter, saying: “Yup!! Great advice.”
Another said: “The goat drops them gems. Good thing!”
While a third added: “OML! That’s crazy. Wow.”
And a fourth commented: “I’d say a pretty good QB to take advice from and excellent advice to pass on too.”
Brady retired from the NFL in February and will start a new career at Fox Sports.
The former New England Patriot signed a ten-year, $375 million broadcast deal with the network last year.
He made his debut last weekend when he appeared on Big Noon Kickoff and cheered on his alma mater and reigning Big Ten champions, the Michigan Wolverines.
After their away win against TCU, the Buffaloes are ranked 22nd and head back to Folsom Field for their next game.
