PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ Not even a Hail Mary is going to help Tom Brady win a seventh Super Bowl championship now that he's with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a Roman Catholic bishop.

Diocese of Providence Bishop Thomas Tobin in a tongue-in-cheek tweet Friday took a swipe at the former New England Patriots quarterback while praising Brady's former boss for raising more than $1 million for coronavirus relief by auctioning a Super Bowl ring.

``Bob Kraft is auctioning a Super Bowl ring for charity,'' Tobin tweeted. ``Very admirable indeed. But is it true that Tom Brady bid on it because he knows it's the only way he'll get another ring?''

Brady won six championships in 20 seasons in New England before signing a free agent deal with Tampa Bay.

Tobin proudly touts in his Twitter profile that he's a Pittsburgh native. That prompted a couple people to reply that Brady has a better chance at another ring than Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
