Soon-to-be free agent quarterback Tom Brady reacted to the rumor that he was in Nashville over the weekend, which was construed as a link to him possibly joining the Tennessee Titans this offseason.
One of the more silly rumors that popped up last week had New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and/or his wife Gisele Bundchen possibly checking out schools in the Nashville area, which would link him to possibly joining the Tennessee Titans.
The rumor was quickly debunked by multiple outlets, and from what we can tell there isn’t any truth to it at all. It was definitely fun while it lasted, though.
During an interview with Jim Gray on Westwood One Radio, Brady was asked about the rumor anyway, and his response didn’t really do much to further it, per WEEI’s Ryan Hannable.
"“I certainly don’t want to take away from anything that is happening today and there’s a lot of speculation, a lot of people who don’t have any information — I haven’t put too much thought into those things other than understanding the situation I am in, which I knew I was going to be in at the beginning of the year and just taking these things day-by-day.”"
Brady then went on to say that he’s taking his time to “decompress” before he makes his ultimate decision. I believe that ultimate decision will have him returning to New England for another season.
Terry McCormick of Titan Insider wrote an article on how the rumor may have started, and while this explanation sounds silly enough, we can’t rule anything out with how ridiculous this whole situation is to begin with.
Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky then went on to debunk McCormick’s version of what may have happened — and now I have a headache.
The fact of the matter is that the chance of Brady coming to the Titans is slim.
Sure, it would make sense from the standpoint that he could join a team that is ready to win now and that he has a connection with thanks to head coach Mike Vrabel, but at the end of the day the Titans seem keen on bringing quarterback Ryan Tannehill back.
And that would be the most logical move at this point. Tannehill had a better season than Brady in 2019, he’s already familiar with the offense, and, as they say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
