Tom Brady may have opened up a Pandora’s box with his comments about an unnamed team not pursuing him in free agency because they were sticking with their quarterback at the time.
Brady made those remarks on an episode of HBO’s The Shop. Since they became public, people have been trying to figure out which team and quarterback he was referring to.
“One of the teams, they weren’t interested at the very end. I was thinking, ‘You’re sticking with that motherf–ker?’” Brady said.
Many think that he was talking about the 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo. Others think it was Mitch Trubisky and the Bears. Whoever it was, don’t expect Brady to reveal much more.
In fact, here’s how TB12 responded to a Bleacher Report photoshop of him in different teams’ jerseys asking which one he could have helped if he signed with them in 2020.

Brady clearly appears tired of all the speculation. However, he had to realize this is what was going to happen once he opened up his mouth.
We’re probably never going to get a straight answer on who he was talking about, but the guesswork won’t be stopping anytime soon.
