During an appearance on ‘The Shop: Uninterrupted’ earlier during the offseason, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB talked about his experience with free agency before the start of the 2020 NFL season.

And Brady took that personally. While not disclosing the quarterback or the franchise, Brady relayed his reaction to the snub in a rather explicit fashion. “You’re sticking with that mother******?” said while referring to the club’s current QB.

This got NFL fans intrigued. Who was this quarterback Brady was referring to? A bunch of names popped up. But Brady has recently cleared the air by scratching out one QB from that list.
