Brian Flores is Reportedly Responsible For Tom Brady Coming Out of Retirement

Tampa Bay Bucs fans may owe Brian Flores a serious thank you.

A new report has surfaced that explains Tom Brady’s plan when he hung it up was to run things in Miami. But once the Brian Flores allegations and subsequent lawsuit got filed, Brady no longer wanted anything to do with the Dolphins. It was too toxic for him to touch.

Instead of trying to figure out which team would fit him best now that the Dolphins were out of the question, he reportedly decided to return to play for the Bucs.

Via WEEI:

“Brady was gonna go run the Dolphins, and then Brian Flores files his lawsuit and throws a wrench in the entire thing. Now all of a sudden you’re worried about cell phones and discovery and all this stuff, so Brady, they scrap those plans. So now Brady’s looking at it, ‘Well, what am I gonna do? Sit around on my couch for a year? No, I might as well go play football.’

“He goes over across the pond over the weekend, to the Man United game, sits in the box with the Glazer family, who owns both those teams,” Volin said. “What I don’t know is, did Brady try to do a power play and the Glazers said no? Here’s what I think happened: the Glazers are very much indebted to Brady. I think Brady went to the Glazers and said, ‘Look, I’ll come back, but we have to fix something with Bruce Arians. You have to talk to the coach.’

“So I think he went directly to the owner, told him what his issues are, and the owner said, ‘You know what, we’ll figure it out.’ And then the next day, after going to that Man U game, Brady announces he’s coming back. So this was all about him going to the Dolphins, it got scrapped because of the Brian Flores lawsuit, he had nothing else to do except play football, and he goes to the Bucs owner across the pond.”

Reports of the Dolphins trying to get Sean Payton and Tom Brady recently surfaced, which lines up with this report’s timeline.

At the end of the day Tom wasn’t ready to call it quits.

Who knows what direction he’ll go once he officially hangs up the cleats.
