Jon Bon Jovi commented on the post to also wish Belichick a happy birthday, writing, “Look .. you can have your cake and eat it too .. happy bday BB JBJ.”

-- Brady used his other social media account on Instagram to post his 2000 NFL combine photo to celebrate the 19th anniversary of the Patriots drafting him and his former teammate Jacoby Brissett had a savage response.

19 years ago today the @patriots took a chance on the guy in this photo: Me (199) --. Thank you to EVERYONE who’s helped me to prove them right! PS: Did they stop taking these photos after mine?? ----

“Not much has changed huh? Lol,” Brissett commented.

And Brady went right back at him with a comment of his own.

“I’ve seen your combine pics and they ain’t much better,” Brady responded.

Boom. Roasted.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I've been hit multiple times in the same area, and literally it's just a deep bruise, I got back out there. The wind initially got knocked out of me. It was weird because when I hit Vucevic, I took an extra step and thought I was fine then I just felt like somebody stabbed me with a knife and I went down.” -- Marcus Smart, on the injury he sustained last week against the Magic
