This year, Brady had indicated he would be doing the same for White. "It's all yours", O'Brien said as he presented White with a F-150 truck, the vehicle that's traditionally given to the MVP of the Super Bowl.
New England Patriots running back James White played an integral role in the team's Super Bowl LI win over the Atlanta Falcons, sealing a historic comeback by scoring the game-winning touchdown in overtime.
Unlike in years past, there was no truck given to the victor of the Super Bowl MVP award.
White set a Super Bowl record with 14 receptions in the game. Boston native Conan O'Brien was in Brady's camp on the issue, too, so when Conan had White on his TBS show, the host gave White a new MVP truck.

He was averaging a career high in points per game with 20.1, in rebounds with 6.2, and assists with 2.8 per game. David Altchek, the team physician for the New York Mets, performed the first ACL surgery on Parker.
"[Brady saying he should win] felt nice, but, I wouldn't get 14 catches if he wasn't throwing me the ball", White said.
So here we are two year's later and the Patriots have won another Super Bowl.
However, he thought James White was actually deserving of the gift that came along with winning the award. But Ford heard Brady, and made a decision to present White with a truck during Thursday night's episode of "Conan". "He's our leader, he's the reason we fought back into that game".
