So much for that rumor.
On Monday, Rich Eisen of the NFL Network floated the idea of Tom Brady returning to the NFL, but this time, with the Dolphins.
“This one just blew my mind: Tom Brady might not be done after all,” Eisen said.
“A couple people were just like, ‘Hang on, just you wait.’ And I was like, ‘He’s Instagramming out pictures of his cat.’ But it doesn’t look like he’s getting big and fat, does it? Let it play out. Let’s see who wants what.”
On Tuesday, the quarterback took to social media, saying he had other things that were keeping him occupied. Specifically, a newborn kitten.
There were multiple reports on Tuesday that featured Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel publicly backing current starter Tua Tagovailoa, including this one from ESPN.
The Dolphins will not be pursuing Lamar Jackson or any other starting QBs this off-season, multiple team sources tell me. As one source said, “Mike fully believes Tua is the perfect fit for his system.”— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) March 7, 2023
Brady retired for a second time, on Feb. 1, following Tampa Bay’s playoff loss to Dallas.
