Tom Brady Refuses to Comment on Aaron Rodgers’ ‘Personal Situation’; Ends Up Saying a Lot

Published 11/09/2021, 9:05 AM EST


At 44, Tom Brady has established himself as one of the fittest athletes in the world. It is shocking to imagine a 44-year-old quarterback in the NFL, especially when rookies are half his age. Recently, Brady went on his podcast, where his co-host questioned him about Aaron Rodgers. Given the Packers QB’s absence, Brady had quite a lot to say.

Given his healthy TB12 lifestyle, Tom Brady is one of the fittest athletes in the world. Because of this, he may form a firm opinion about certain health practices. Of course, the co-host of the Let’s Go! podcast, Jim Gray, questioned him about Aaron Rodgers. The Packers QB was unvaccinated and tested positive for COVID-19. Brady first had quite a quick response planned.

“I’m not commenting on Aaron Rodgers’ personal situation. Far be it for me to tell anyone what to put in their body. But by the way, The TB12 Method is available in paperback wherever nutritional books are sold and I’ll leave it at that.” Jim Gray even asked Brady is he’s reading a prepared statement. He replied, “Nope, just thought about it and obviously that’s how I feel and that’s all I’m going to say.”

“Every week and we’re trying to prevent the spread of it. We’ve missed some players this year. Other teams have missed some players this year. I hope everyone stays safe. I think that’s the important part in all of it.”

While he could’ve ended his piece on Aaron Rodgers there, Brady had more left in his gut. The next part of his rant on the entire Aaron Rodgers issues shows how strongly Brady thinks about this whole situation. Despite his words earlier, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback had a lot to say.

“I would love to see a stronger union so we can negotiate something that’s more fair and what’s really right for the owners, the coaches and the players because all three groups need different things. And if you’re going to ask for more, then you better provide more. But that hasn’t been the way negotiations have gone. Players should have the best health care and receive the best treatment. I have for a long time. I’ve had to do it myself, though. That’s just a reality. The league didn’t provide it for me.”

“That’s why I’m very cognizant of what I put into my body. My hydration. What I eat. How I recover, how I train, how I work out, how I get all my pliability treatments. Those things are very important to me. I want to live a great life after football and I want to teach other people who have been in my position and others who love being active in the same types of things.”
