The Tom Brady, Miami Dolphins rumors just aren't going away.

While Brady, 44, is committed to playing another season in Tampa Bay, there continues to be speculation that he would've preferred to end up in Miami.

According to multiple reports, Brady had planned on forcing his way to the Dolphins, landing an ownership/front office role with the AFC East franchise.

However, those plans were scrapped when Brian Flores filed a lawsuit against the Dolphins franchise. Pro Football Talk has been on top of everything:

Simms and I first talked about it on February 28. Since then, the news of the Dolphins targeting both Sean Payton and Tom Brady in the weeks preceding the Brian Flores lawsuit has slowly spread, with more people adding details to the reporting — even as the biggest outlets covering the NFL (ESPN and NFL Network) have completely ignored it.

The story has grown longer legs. More and more media and fans are waking up to it, even if the outlet that first reported it has gotten lost in the sauce. (Twice on Wednesday, for example, I was asked what I think of the Brady to Miami rumors.)

The NFL world can't stop talking about Brady and the Dolphins, though.

Perhaps we'll see Brady to Miami in 2023.

Brady to the Dolphins, facing the Patriots twice a year, would be pretty awesome.
