It was not all work for Brady as he toured the country.

Tom Brady is in Asia as part of a promotional tour with Under Armour, and if the quarterback has his way, he would return for a National Football League game in the future. Brady will visit Japan to continue to promote his performance-enhancing pyjamas.

"We had an opportunity, I think, 10 years ago and my team was going to play here", Brady said, according to Boston.com.

But China is a huge market, so Brady's idea isn't outlandish, especially with the league making a strong effort in recent years to appeal to an global audience.
