The five-time Super Bowl MVP arrived at parade on a new $2 million boat with a police escort, FOX 13's Kevin O'Donnell reports. Several videos of Brady's arrival were shared on social media during the parade on Wednesday (February 10.)
But that's not all, Brady, who won a record seventh Super Bowl on Sunday, later threw the Lombardi Trophy to longtime teammates on Rob Gronkowski's boat sailing nearby.
The four-time Super Bowl champion had previously dented the Lombardi Trophy after winning Super Bowl LIII with the New England Patriots by using it to bunt a baseball thrown by wide receiver Julian Edelman, who he argued deserved blame for the incident.
True to form, Brady and Gronkowski enjoyed record-setting performances during Super Bowl LV.
Brady finished Sunday's game with 201 yards and three touchdowns on 21 of 29 passing, winning a record fifth Super Bowl MVP Award, which surpassed his own previous record set in Super Bowl LI (2017.)
Gronkowski led the Buccaneers with six receptions for 67 yards and two touchdowns, the first of which set a new NFL record for most postseason touchdowns by a duo, as the 13th between himself and Brady during their lengthy run as teammates.
Brady and Gronkowski, who had previously appeared in five Super Bowls together prior to Sunday's game, connected on an 8-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter, which surpassed former San Francisco 49ers Joe Montana and Jerry Rice's previous record of 12.
Brady later connected with Gronkowski on a 17-yard touchdown with 6:05 remaining in the second quarter to extend the Bucs' lead to 14-3 and set the new record at 14 touchdowns.
The duo has now won four Super Bowls together, while Brady -- who won his record-setting fifth Super Bowl MVP on Sunday -- has won seven all-time, the most by an NFL quarterback.
Brady and Gronkowski had previously spent their entire careers on the Patriots prior to reuniting with the Bucs this past offseason.
Both Brady and Gronkowski -- who came out of retirement this past offseason -- both expressed their intention to continue playing next season after the Bucs' win on Sunday night.
