Tom Brady jokes about living at Derek Jeter’s house on Howard Stern’s show

Tom Brady made his eagerly anticipated appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show on Wednesday morning. Among the myriad topics discussed — and one on a lighter note — was how the new Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback is settling in at his new home in Florida.

Once the decision was made to sign with the Bucs and leave the New England Patriots after two decades and six Super Bowl victories, Brady reached out to pal Derek Jeter about his unsettled living arrangements.

The news that Brady would live at Jeter’s 30,000 square-foot, seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom waterfront mansion in the posh Davis Islands neighborhood in Tampa was confirmed last week.

It turns out that while the palatial estate more than suits the superstar’s needs, there is one drawback to its particular location, as Brady shared with Stern on SiriusXM Wednesday morning. It involved how Brady will have to get accustomed to a little less privacy than what he’s been afforded at his other homes.

“I forgot people could drive up to your house. Here they can pull right up to the back of the house,” Brady said on “The Howard Stern Show,”, as transcribed by the New York Post. “Derek did a pretty good job of screening it. I am a little bit of an introvert. I feel like my house is my place I can relax. When you are outside the house, you understand everything with being me. … In the backyard there’s a lot of boats that have pulled up and people at the front.”

Brady even joked about a needed house repair that he asked Jeter to address. It turns out the home’s washing machine was on the fritz.

“I call and I bitch to him and he gets it fixed,” Brady said with a chuckle.

It certainly sounds like Brady is happy with his living arrangements for the most part, although that’s hardly surprising given that Jeter is his landlord. What’s more, Brady is extremely unlikely to become one of those problematic tenants, much to Jeter’s relief.
