Some takes age better than others, and as Max Kellerman knows six years later, his bold assessment of Tom Brady didn’t exactly go the route of a fine wine.

Back in 2016, the ESPN personality, 48, declared that Brady was “just about done” on “First Take” as the then-Patriots quarterback was entering his 17th season in the league. Among the niceties, Kellerman proclaimed Brady “is going to fall off a cliff,” and that he would be “a bum in short order.”

Well, the only thing that has changed between now and then is the three Super Bowl rings Brady has added to his collection. And on Thursday, the Buccaneers quarterback — who has his eyes locked on an eighth championship title — kindly reminded the former “First Take” co-host of what he’s been up to after a clip of the moment resurfaced online.

“@maxkellerman ratio + I have a swimwear line now,” Brady tweeted at Kellerman on the sixth anniversary of the take, all the while hyping up his Brady Brand swim collection .

Kellerman later responded , “You’ve only won 3 Super Bowls since then. Calm down.”

The current host of “This Just In” initially backtracked on his remarks during the 2020 season, when Brady eventually led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl title in his first year in Tampa Bay.

“I was wrong, Tom Brady never fell off a cliff,” Kellerman said at the time.

Brady, who turns 45 in August, is now preparing for his 23rd NFL season following a brief retirement earlier this year. Tampa brass recently added a new weapon to his arsenal in the form of seven-time Pro Bowl receiver, Julio Jones .

The Buccaneers will open the season on the road in Dallas in a “Sunday Night Football” matchup against the Cowboys on Sept. 11.
