The New England Patriots won their fourth Super Bowl title in franchise history in 2014 and the man responsible for all four, quarterback Tom Brady, was ranked as the No. 3 player on the Top 100 NFL players list for 2015 on Wednesday.
Before the Top 10 rankings were revealed on Wednesday night, everyone knew Brady was in the Top 10 but were unsure of where he ranked on the list. The Top 10 also included Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown, Brady’s teammate Rob Gronkowski, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.
The two players who were ranked ahead of Brady were Rpdgers who was ranked No. 2 on the list and Watt who was ranked as the top player for 2015.
Last season, Brady had another strong statistical season as he ranked in the Top 10 in passing yards, passing touchdowns and interceptions in his 15th season in the NFL. Brady will hope to either duplicate or improve on such numbers as he attempts to lead the Patriots to back-to-back Super Bowl titles for the second time in franchise history.
