New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said Monday that he will vote in this year's presidential election, but he is staying tight-lipped about who he'll vote for.
Speaking with WEEI-FM radio, Brady said he would open up after the election.
When asked about his friendship with Republican nominee Donald Trump and if Trump in person is unlike his appearances on television, Brady said, "He's been a friend of mine. He's supported our team. He's supported the Patriots. He's been on the Patriots sideline a lot. He's always called me after games to encourage me over the course of 15 years. That's kind of the way it is."

He added that the two have played golf together many times. "I've always had a good time with him."
Brady's friendship with Trump has come up several times during the election, most recently last week when necn reporter Jonathan Choe asked him how he would respond if his kids heard Trump's version of "locker room talk."
Brady smiled and said, "Thank you guys. Have a good day," before walking away from the podium. The non-response generated headlines across the country.
The quarterback has known Trump since 2002, when Brady served as a judge for one of Trump's beauty pageants.
Trump was vocal in his defense of Brady throughout the "Deflategate" ordeal, praising him repeatedly while on the campaign trail.
