FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- In the New England Patriots' final preseason game this year, quarterback Tom Brady exchanged jerseys with New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in a mutual show of respect. Now we can add another high-profile NFL player to the "exchange" list: Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
As part of Showtime's "Inside the NFL" program, NFL Films captured the moment before the game when Brady and Roethlisberger met on the field.
"Good to see you, man," Brady says to Roethlisberger as the two share an embrace.
"How are you doing?" Roethlisberger asks before relaying how badly he wants to play against him.
"Vice-versa, I feel the same way," Brady says.
Then Roethlisberger puts his hand on Brady's chest and says, "Hey, listen, I've never done this before, but I would love to get a jersey at some point. It would mean ... There's not many that I want. I'm going to put it in my office. You're the best, dude."
Brady is happy to oblige, saying he'll get it to him after the game as the two share a final embrace before heading in opposite directions.
