Tom Brady Rumors 2023: AFC Team Ready To “Aggressively” Pursue Buccaneers QB; Brady, Sean Payton Teaming Up Still Possible?

As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers prepare to play the Dallas Cowboys tomorrow night in the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs, all Tom Brady is thinking about is another postseason win. Yet no matter how much Brady tries to deflect the attention away, the rumors of where No. 12 will play in 2023 are not going away. In fact, this is just the beginning.

Tom Brady Rumors – Vegas wants him

Where will Tom Brady play in 2023? Will he sign with Tampa, a different team or hang ’em up for good? Right now Brady has made it clear that he won’t talk about anything except the upcoming Bucs playoff game vs Dallas.

“I don’t know,” Brady said when asked Friday about rumors of him playing elsewhere in 2023. “You guys gotta write something new every day. So I just wake up, show up and try to do my job.”

While Brady is laser focused on Monday night’s big game, it doesn’t change the fact that sooner or later he will have to face the media and make a decision about his future. And the closer we get to the Super Bowl, more rumors will surely surface on just how many teams may be interested in the 45-year-old QB.

According to CBS Sports, the Las Vegas Raiders are already making it known that they are interested. CBS indicates that the Raiders plan to be ‘very aggressive’ in their pursuit of quarterback Tom Brady this offseason.

If Brady joined the Raiders this offseason he would be reunited with his former OC in New England Josh McDaniels. The duo won six Super Bowls during their time together in New England. Could you imagine what would be going through Bill Belichick’s mind if Brady went to the Raiders?

Brady, Payton heading south together?

The rumors of Tom Brady heading to Miami have been around since the end of last season. However, unlike other rumors that usually fizzle out, this one just won’t go away.

The NY Post reports that the possibility of a Brady-Miami union is “definitely on the table,” according to Pro Football Talk, which cited one source with general knowledge of the quarterback’s situation.

But of course Brady to Miami is rumored to be a “package” deal as explained by The Post.

“Brady has a history with the Dolphins that was exposed in a separate report by Pro Football Talk in February (2022). The Dolphins reportedly planned to pursue Brady in a dynamic pairing with former Saints coach Sean Payton — but their plan was foiled when former Miami coach Brian Flores filed a landmark race discrimination lawsuit, which came on the same day Brady announced his first retirement on Feb. 1.”

With the Flores issue now behind the Dolphins, could the Miami brass be ready to shift gears – even though first year coach Mike McDaniel led Miami to the postseason?

Before you dismill the “Brady-Payton” Miami possibility, keep this in mind.

The Dolphins are owned by Stephen M. Ross, a Michigan native and grad. Why does this matter? Tom Brady also went to Michigan and still talks about his love for his alma matter. The same can be said for Ross.

The 82-year-old owner, if given the chance, may jump at the chance to have Payton and Brady working with an offense that has the possibility to be one of the best in the league. In the NFL, you can never say never.

Stay tuned.
