Tom Brady won the MVP trophy, but the rookie who made the Super Bowl's clutch play is getting the truck. As a way to thank Malcolm Butler for his game-saving interception, Brady gave Butler the Chevy pickup that came along with Brady's MVP honors in Super Bowl XLIX, reports ESPN. "Tom's a great guy for doing that," Butler said today as he collected the keys. But is Butler a truck guy? "I think I am now." Of course, with the generosity comes a tax bill, notes Forbes. Butler can expect to write a check to Uncle Sam for about $14,000. (More Tom Brady stories.)
