FILE - In this Dec. 12, 1994 file photo Kansas City Chief's quarterback Joe Montana watches from the sidelines during an NFL football game against the Miami Dolphins. Tom Brady’s departure from the New England Patriots on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 brings an end to one of the NFL’s most memorable eras. Joe Montana was in some ways a previous generation’s version of Brady — an iconic quarterback who was calm under pressure and always seemed to have his team in contention for a championship. He won four Super Bowl titles with San Francisco, but after elbow problems limited him for a couple seasons, the 49ers traded Montana to Kansas City. The Chiefs had Montana for two seasons and reached the AFC title game with him once. (AP Photo/Han Deryk, file)
