The joint practices between the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans have not been lacking for entertainment. Specifically, the jawing between Tom Brady and Titans head coach Mike Vrabel has been far more enjoyable than we could have anticipated.
According to Jim Wyatt of Titans Online, Tom Brady had a small present for his former Patriots teammate.
Braady apparently handed Vrabel a tiny trophy with the score of last year’s Patriots-Titans game on it.
Tennessee won that game, 34-10

It’s the second day in a row that Brady and Vrabel have teased each other during these practices.
Yesterday, Vrabel yelled at Brady for walking on the field, to which Brady shouted back, “Why don’t you pay attention to your own (expletive)?”
It’s all in good fun, though. Vrabel and Brady won three Super Bowls together and were teammates for nearly a decade. Chances are, they’re pretty good friends when the cameras are off.
Both of them were named to New England’s 50th Anniversary Team in 2009.
As much fun as they’ve had together in the past few days, the gloves will come off on Saturday when the Patriots and Titans play each other in Week 2 of the preseason.
