Malcolm Butler Officially Receives Super Bowl Truck from Tom Brady

The Patriots hero finally received his reward from the Super Bowl.

The hero of the latest Super Bowl finally received his reward from the Most Valuable Player. While quarterback Tom Brady was named the game's MVP, he probably has thirty different cars and didn't feel like adding another garage bay for the awarded Chevy Colorado.

Brady instead opted to give the truck to undrafted rookie cornerback Malcolm Butler, who grabbed the game sealing interception on the goal line to seal the franchise's fourth Super Bowl victory. There was plenty of paperwork prior to transferring the truck- Brady didn't want to force the rookie to deal with the excess taxes or expenses associated with receiving the prize- but everything's finally ironed out.

Malcolm Butler finally picked up his truck in Vicksburg, Mississippi on Friday. This truck is a small price to pay in exchange for another Super Bowl victory and Tom Brady would gladly give a rookie a car every season if it meant hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the year.

Congratulations to Butler on the well deserved vehicle.
