Patriots' Tom Brady nears rushing milestone

The Patriots’ Tom Brady, arguably the best quarterback of all time, is closing in on his first, and likely last, rushing milestone.

With 32 rushing yards, the four-time MVP will reach 1,000 rushing yards for his career … in his 18th NFL season. However, it likely won’t come Sunday against the Broncos as he’s never rushed for 32 yards in a game.

Patriots running back James White told the Boston Herald it’s “funny to laugh” at Brady running on film every Monday, but pointed out “(h)e’s getting 1,000 before me, so I can’t really talk.”

As we prepare for another momentous accomplishment in Brady’s career, let’s recap his most notable rushing stats:

197: The amount of negative rushing yards Brady has accumulated by kneeling 190 times

22: The yardage of Brady’s career-long run (in 2006 against the Bengals)

1.8: Brady’s career yards per attempt — which is better than Drew Brees (1.71) and Peyton Manning (1.4)

5.28: How long it took Brady to run the 40-yard dash at the 2000 scouting combine … a video every running-related Brady story must end upon
