He dispelled any rumors that the Miami Dolphins might trade Tom Brady to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason, which would have been a big deal for the team.
Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel did his best to put out the flames of his team’s possibly trading for Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady in the latest installment of the NFL rumor that won’t die.
Though stranger things have happened in professional sports, Brady’s decision to play for this particular AFC East team makes little sense.
They are in the same division as his old team, the New England Patriots, with whom he won six Super Bowls and earned the title of “GOAT.” Brady would play for the team with whom he has a contract if he were to play this season.
This is why, as much as he loves working with Brady, McDaniel slammed everyone with “false news.”
Tom Brady to Miami Dolphins rumors are “false news,” according to Mike McDaniel.
There are a slew of reasons why the Dolphins should not trade for Brady. The first is that it would further alienate their starting quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, who was selected with the No. 5 overall choice in the 2019 NFL Draft by general manager Chris Grier.
Plus, at Brady’s age of 45, the Dolphins would be taking a chance on a quarterback who is nearly half the age of the Buccaneers’ superstar.
Miami would have to forego future pick compensation to acquire a depreciating asset like Brady.Take into account the fact that Brady’s return to Tampa Bay has had a significant impact on the Buccaneers’ free agency intentions.
Ryan Jensen refuses to return without him. Without Brady, Chris Godwin will not gladly accept the franchise tag. They didn’t even consider trading for Shaq Mason.
If Brady was headed to the Dolphins, the Buccaneers would have made a deal with them long before the third wave of NFL free agency began.
Though Brady’s fate is still up in the air, it is far more likely that he will play his age-45 season in Michigan for the same NFC South team with which he has spent the previous two seasons rather than in Miami.
Brady’s decision to play under McDaniel, a first-year head coach, would be startling.
