Lowliness is young ambition's ladder, Whereto the climber-upward turns his face; But when he once attains the upmost round He then unto the ladder turns his back, Looks in the clouds, scorning the base degrees By which he did ascend. Julius Caesar, Act ii. Sc. 1 Shakespeare
When Tom Brady isn't winning Super Bowls or breaking NFL records, he spends his time trolling his teammates on social media. Patriots rookie defensive end Chase Winovich shared an inspirational quote from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" on Instagram along with a photo of himself sitting on the sidelines during the Patriots' preseason game against the Detroit Lions.
Brady saw the post and decided to leave a message for the 24-year-old Michigan product: "Study your playbook."
Winovich jokingly replied: "Yes, dad right away."
Winovich has played well in his short time at training camp, earning some slight praise from Patriots coach Bill Belichick.
"He's a rookie; he needs to work on everything," Belichick told reporters. "But Chase is tough, he runs well, he's got good size, good power. He had a very productive career at Michigan, and we're looking forward to seeing him out there in some game action, both on defense and in the kicking game."
