Tom Brady responds to speculation that he might return to NFL and play for Jets.
Tom Brady responds to speculation about playing for the Jets
After Aaron Rodgers went down with a season-ending injury, there were rumors circulating about Tom Brady potentially joining the Jets as their quarterback. However, Brady had not addressed these rumors publicly until now. During the latest episode of his “Let’s Go” podcast, Brady was asked about the Jets, and while he didn’t give a direct answer, he left the door slightly open for a possible return. This has only fueled further speculation about Brady’s potential availability and the Jets’ need for a quarterback.
Struggles with Zach Wilson and the need for a quarterback
The Jets have been struggling with rookie quarterback Zach Wilson at the helm. While he did manage to pull off a miracle win over the Bills, he looked overmatched in their Week 2 loss to the Cowboys. It has become clear that the Jets won’t be able to make it to the playoffs with Wilson as their quarterback, and they may need to bring in a more experienced player to salvage their season. This is one of the reasons why the speculation about Brady potentially joining the Jets continues to persist.
Additionally, one obstacle that was previously thought to prevent Brady from playing for the Jets was his reported stake in the Raiders. However, this purchase has not been finalized yet, meaning Brady is currently eligible to sign as a free agent with any team, including the Jets. This further adds to the speculation surrounding Brady’s potential return.
With that being said, while Brady’s response to the speculation about playing for the Jets wasn’t a definitive “no,” it also wasn’t a clear confirmation. This leaves room for continued speculation as fans and analysts eagerly await any updates on Brady’s future in the NFL.
