Talking about Brady’s performances, Cowherd said,Brady can still sling it. He’s not as good as he was, but remember, the San Francisco offense is built. Are you smart? Can you distribute the ball accurately? Can we pay you a good salary but not break the bank if we want to keep these weapons?

On Brady’s retirement, Cowherd said, Somebody I trust outside of this building told me a couple of weeks ago, ‘I don’t think Tom Brady’s gonna be a broadcaster any time soon. I think he wants to play.

While Cowherd was pointing at the Niners as Brady’s possible destination in 2023, Eisen talked about the Dolphins as a potential option for the former Buccaneers‘ QB. Because there’s a huge question mark over Dolphins’ QB Tua Tagovailoa’s health next season after suffering several concussions in the previous season. Moreover, Brady’s ex-wife, Gisele Bündchen, reportedly bought a house in Miami as well. Right now, Brady remains retired and most likely won’t be returning to football any time soon.
