FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady expressed his appreciation for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who had handed him a pair of "GOAT" cleats during postgame activity on the field Sunday.
"That was pretty cool. That was very, very nice of him. Pretty unique," Brady said Monday morning during his weekly appearance on "The Greg Hill Show" on sports radio WEEI.
"I've never had anyone do that for me. That was very thoughtful. I certainly appreciate it."

The cleats have real goat hair on them, with Beckham saying he has a pair himself. He told the Akron Beacon Journal before the game, "I'm gonna give them to him because he's one of the GOATs, and he's more the GOAT than I am."
The two connected near midfield immediately after the Patriots posted a 27-13 victory Sunday.
Shortly thereafter, Brady waited outside the Browns' locker room, along with his son Ben, for Beckham to emerge. They shared an extended conversation.
During his Monday radio interview, Brady said his oldest son, Jack, who lives in New York, is a big fan of Beckham, a former Giants star.
"All the kids at school in New York, after he made that catch [in 2014], it was 'OBJ! OBJ! OBJ!' So then my son Benny, from his older brother, he got to know who [Beckham] was. It was pretty nice," Brady said.
"He's a great player. I always wish him a lot of success."
