One of the biggest stories of the offseason will be what Tom Brady decides to do in 2023, and there is a current player who made a suggestion for the Buccaneers quarterback.
If the 45-year-old does decides to return to Tampa Bay, he’ll come back with a lot of changes after the team decided to fire offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and multiple other staff members.
The speculation has run wild on Brady’s next team, including a return to the New England Patriots, but Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer was on his podcast Wednesday and sent a clear message to the future Hall of Famer.
“Tom, you know I love you, and I feel like I’ve been riding for you all year,” Poyer said on “The Jordan Poyer Show,” per The Volume. “Early on, you can go back to my podcast, I said you can’t count Tom out. And sure as (expletive) he made the playoffs. You did everything you could’ve did in this league. I understand you love this game. Go be with your kids, man. I didn’t like watching that game. It was hard to watch. You’re down 27-0 at halftime. He was defeated. You could see he was defeated. I still think he obviously knows everything about everything, the insides and out of football. But it does take 11 to play the game. Go be with your kids, Tom. I appreciate everything you’ve done in this league. I got two picks off of you, one to the crib. Lost both games. I’m 0-11 against you. Yes, please go. Go be with your kids, Tom.”
The All-Pro safety certainly was honest in his opinion on what Brady should do with his future. Perhaps he can get one of those picked-off footballs signed by the former MVP quarterback like other players have if he still has them.
Brady has a lucrative deal with FOX waiting for him, and the 2022 season wasn’t a great sign for the seven-time Super Bowl champion. But the way things ended in the wild-card round might not be how Brady wants to leave the NFL.
The decision will be up to the All-Pro QB as many other people will continue to chime in on what Brady should do this offseason.
