The GOAT has spoken.
Former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who retired from the NFL in 2022 after 23 seasons, has finally weighed on who he believes should win the league’s Most Valuable Player award.
There are plenty of candidates this season, from quarterbacks like Brock Purdy and Dak Prescott to skill position players like running back Christian McCaffrey and wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
But Brady, who’s won three MVP awards himself, said he’d pick McCaffrey to win the award.
“He is definitely, in my mind, the MVP favorite,” Brady said on a recent episode of his “Let’s Go!” podcast, “and according to his quarterback, too, Brock Purdy, who says some amazing things about him.”

The McCaffrey-for-MVP conversation gained a lot of steam after the running back tallied 187 total yards and scored three total touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15.
McCaffrey is currently tied with Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert for the most total touchdowns in the NFL with 20 and leads the league in rushing yards and scrimmage yards with 1,292 and 1,801, respectively.
Those stats have to count for something, but a quarterback has won the award every year since 2013.
A running back has won MVP in the past, though: Adrian Peterson took home the award in 2012 when he was on the Minnesota Vikings.
Other recent running back legends like LaDanian Tomlinson, Shaun Alexander, Marshall Faulk, Barry Sanders, and Emmitt Smith have taken home the accolade as well.
Brady can’t vote for MVP, but his endorsement of CMC’s candidacy might count for something among those who do cast MVP ballots.
