Tom Brady is poised to face off with the Saints for the first time as a Buccaneer, and he is already having fun with opposing coach, Sean Payton.

Tom Brady has already shown in his short time as a Buccaneer that he has far more personality than most people expected. Brady was more measured during his time in New England, but it appears as though he is letting loose with his new team.

The Buccaneers are currently pegged as underdogs in the week one matchup versus division rival, New Orleans, and the game will be a dogfight from start to finish.

In an attempt to get in Sean Payton‘s head beforehand, Brady had a unique trick up his sleeve to mess with a longtime friend, as reported by ESPN’s Jenna Laine on Twitter.

The new Buccaneer quarterback has his own health and fitness brand, called TB12, that Sean Payton chose to make a purchase from. After placing his order, Payton started to receive numerous emails with additional product offers. As anyone would normally do when this reached an unacceptable level, Payton tried to unsubscribe, but Brady had a different idea.

When Brady found out that Payton was being bombarded by emails, he decided to help his friend and opponent by reaching out to his company to increase the rate of emails, rather than cut down on their frequency.

While everyone understands the financial benefits of owning your own company, Tom Brady has shown that the opportunities go far beyond money. As Sean Payton could tell you, Brady knows how to weld his power, and unsubscribing from TB12 could be a fruitless endeavor.

Sean Payton won’t lose sleep over this, but it is still interesting to see this new side of Brady that had been hidden with the Patriots, and perhaps more pranks will be in store for other opposing coaches and players as the season progresses.
