Two years ago, the Seahawks’ vociferous cornerback Richard Sherman found Tom Brady after the Seahawks defeated the Patriots in the regular season.

He jawed at Brady, and spawned the infamous “U Mad Bro?” meme.

After the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory Sunday, Sherman again approached Brady. But this time, Sherman extended a hand, and withheld any fighting words.

On bended knee after the game’s final snap, Brady cradled the football as Sherman, who was thrown at once, initiated the decades-old tradition of a postgame handshake between opponents.
