No surprise here, really.

Tom Brady, a buddy of Donald Trump, told reporters on Wednesday that a Trump presidency “would be great,” according to reports from several sports outlets, including NBC Sports.

Brady expounded on his relationship with the Republican presidential candidate on WEEI’s “Dennis and Callahan” radio show last week. Turns out the two are golfing buds, and Trump supported his friend through the whole Deflategate scandal.

Also last week a baseball cap sporting Trump’s campaign logo - “Make America Great Again”- was spotted in Brady’s locker.

But Brady declined to say last week that he would vote for Trump.

“Honestly, he’s a good friend and we’ve had a lot of time on the golf course together over the years, probably not much recently, but when I was in my younger days,” the Patriots quarterback said.

“It’s pretty amazing what he’s been able to accomplish as an entrepreneur and then as a television star and now running for political office. People who can do those types of things and transition into different arenas and still have that type of appeal and carry-over. He’s obviously appealing to a lot of different people. He’s a hell of a lot of fun to play golf with.”

Trump, who will debate 10 other Republican candidates Wednesday night, was quick to spread the word about Brady’s perceived endorsement.
