Seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady's notorious diet was so strict that he limited himself to just one chicken wing as a cheat meal during his NFL career, according to longtime former New England Patriots teammate Julian Edelman.

"He used to love chicken wings once in a while," Edelman told PEOPLE following Brady's Patriots Hall of Fame induction Wednesday (June 12) night. "We used to have the same team meals every night before the game because we would stay in hotels and usually we'd cater the same types of foods and there'd always be some sort of chicken wing."

"And Tom would always have one chicken wing for his guilty pleasure before we would huddle off to bed," Edelman added, specifying, "a single chicken wing," while laughing.

Brady's diet of 80% vegetables and whole grains and 20% lean meats and fish allowed him to play 23 NFL seasons through the age of 45 before retiring in February 2023. The 46-year-old is set to become FOX Sports' lead NFL analyst as part of a deal that was agreed to take place following the conclusion of his playing career, having taken a gap year to spend time with his family and prepare for the job.

Brady is the NFL's all-time passing leader for yards and touchdowns, as well as quarterback wins, among numerous other records.
