Buccaneers star OL Donovan Smith had ZERO issues with Tom Brady‘s boozy celebration in Tampa on Thursday … telling TMZ Sports the QB earned every single second of it!
Brady had an absolute blast partying it up at his seventh Super Bowl title parade … throwing the Lombardi Trophy off the back of his boat and appearing to be a little bit tipsy when he got back to land.
But, Smith says the dude deserved to party even HARDER than that if he wanted … telling us the feat Tom accomplished by beating the Chiefs this past Sunday is just that special.
“If my man’s had a couple drinks, he deserves it!” Smith says. “You feel me? We all deserve it! I wish I had one right now.”
Smith says Brady cemented himself as the greatest of all-time with the SB LV win … telling us the guy is definitely in the conversation for best athlete ever, not just NFL player.
“Seven rings — more than any franchise has alone,” Smith said of Brady. “So, he is his own franchise. He’s great, man.”
As for how Smith celebrated his first-ever championship … the 27-year-old told us he’s only slept a TOTAL of 10 hours since Sunday’s game.
The good news, though? Smith tells us it’s all been worth it and then some … saying, “We’re still living it up!”
