New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is suspended four games and won’t be at Gillette Stadium or with the Patriots during the suspension.
But a version of him will be keeping watch.
The team’s Twitter account shared a new tribute to the quarterback on Sunday, as a big photo now adorns a tower at the stadium. His No. 12 is also on the top of the tower, like a lighthouse beacon.

Brady, famously only a sixth-round draft pick out of Michigan, is a four-time Super Bowl champion. This tribute is yet another way the franchise is backing its star player during Deflategate, which involved allegations the Patriots tampered with footballs.
Brady will return to Michigan while sitting out his suspension. He will be the Wolverines’ honorary captain for the Colorado game on Sept. 17.
