Default Tom Brady brought to tears about his draft-day fall

Tom Brady was brought to tears during an interview about his draft-day fall in 1999 for an ESPN documentary set to air Tuesday.

"The Brady Six" explores how all NFL teams passed on Brady for 198 selections -- including the drafting of six other quarterbacksbefore the New England Patriots called Brady's name at the 1999 event

Brady sat for an interview with NFL Films' Steve Sabol to discuss his memories. The three-time Super Bowl winner was visibly emotional as he recalled the frustration of the rounds passing without his selection and the support his parents offered him that day. (See video of the clip below.)

"It was hard," Brady said. "I remember taking a walk with my dad and mom around the block ..."

(A choked-up Brady sniffles, with his eyes reddening.)

"Sorry about that.

"Finally when the Patriots called, I was so excited. I don't have to be an insurance salesman, you know."


The tears start around the 1:20 mark - WTF?
