Last season, Tom Brady made his dramatic return to Foxborough for the first time since leaving the New England Patriots. With a new Super Bowl ring in his collection, the legendary quarterback guided his Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 19-17 victory at Gillette Stadium.

After spending 20 years with the Patriots, returning home must have been a surreal moment for Brady. While we can only imagine what was going through his mind during the reunion, we got glimpses of his day behind the scenes.

The Buccaneers released an "In the Current" video series taking an inside look at their regular season. The first episode chronicled the marquee Week 4 matchup at New England.

NFL reporter Dov Kleiman captured a brief segment where Brady encountered Patriots owner Robert Kraft. There was nothing but love between the two, at least while the cameras were running.

Brady and Kraft hugged, with the quarterback commenting on his "nice and short" haircut. They said they missed each other, and Kraft said he was proud of Brady, who steered Tampa Bay to a championship the previous year.

Later in the episode, the crew captured footage of Brady embracing old teammates on the field after the game and joking that he hadn't played in rain in 20 months. He addressed the matchup's unique atmosphere to the crew.

"It was probably once in my career that that will happen, you know, where I'm playing in that stadium with that many people I know."

Brady reportedly came close to ensuring another trip to New England, as rumors have surfaced that he nearly joined the Miami Dolphins, initially as a minority owner before they acquired his rights from Tampa Bay. Now that he's returning to the Buccaneers for his age-45 season instead, there's a good chance Brady will never face the Patriots again.
