Brady was asked about snubbing Foles during his Thursday press conference.

«I didn’t even think about that,» Brady said with a laugh. «I think Nick Foles is a hell of a player and a Super Bowl champ. I don’t know one reason or another why I wouldn’t do that. Sometimes I run off the field, sometimes I haven’t.

«Sometimes if I have a personal relationship like I have with Drew and Justin and Aaron over the years — I don’t know, I don’t think it’s anything in particular other than I have great admiration for Nick and I think he’s a hell of a player. [The Bears] are off to a great start.’

We’ll just have to wait patiently for Brady vs. Foles Pt. 3 to see if the handshake snubs continue.
