Tom Brady Doesn’t Deny Negotiations With Miami Dolphins

June 9th, 2022

The chatter in many NFL media circles about Tom Brady being ready to join the Dolphins in the Winter of 2022 as a football executive/owner finally got more clarity today.

Sage of Tampa Bay Sports and columnist Ira Kaufman asked Brady if there was any truth to the reports of him negotiating with the Dolphins to join them in any capacity.

Brady didn’t reply with a yes or a no, but he did say he had a lot of offseason discussions about many opportunties, and Brady said he’s also been busy looking at post-career opportunities over the past three of four years.

So there you have it. Brady’s non-answer, as he stood at a One Buc Palace podium with team logos behind, means he it’s a safe bet that he was indeed interested and ready for a winter bolt to South Floridfa to try his hand at fixing and owning the Dolphins.

Thankfully, he got smart and returned to the Bucs.

    Why not just say “yes”? I don’t get it sometimes.

  2. Mr. Editor Says:

    The Dolphins organization is toxic right now, and he was wise to stay away. Good for us Bucs fans!

  3. PassingThru Says:

    It was what I predicted, that Brady was probably interested in a minority-interest share in one of the NFL teams that are currently, or expected to be up for sale.

    He’s looking for life after football, at least as a player. And NFL teams never lose money, that’s the real purpose of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

  4. Drebucsfan Says:

    He never said NO, but i believe he spoke to someone about possibly some type of involvement not as a player but life after a player. Him and Sean Peyton most likely spoke about turning the organization around together

  5. Anonymous Says:

    It’s clear it was not gonna be in a player capacity but minority ownership.

  6. Cobraboy Says:

    Did he ever approach the Glazers about a slice of the Bucs?

    Yes? No? Was he rebuffed?

    I have *zero* problem with Brady inquiring about purchasing a piece of any NFL franchise.

  7. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    Of course other teams have reached out to him after he announced his retirement. Nothing to see here.

    ‘Brady’s non-answer … means he it’s a safe bet that he was indeed interested and ready for a winter bolt to South Floridfa to try his hand at fixing and owning the Dolphins.’

    Seems like back in the ‘olden days’ of journalism a ‘non-answer’ meant that the person being asked the question neither confirmed NOR denied what was being asked. Nowadays a ‘non-answer’ apparently is ASSUMED to be a confirmation. Well, either that or it’s just serving as ‘bait’ to get a real confirmation or denial. In either event, MAYBE it’ll get you the answer that’s eluded the media for so long. Never know, although I’m sure Tom Brady has played this game before.

    I love the fact that we have Brady for this year and I have nothing against the dude, but I could care less what he did in the off-season and I could care even less than that what he does with himself once he’s outta here. If his plans include our team after this year then I’d love to have him play qb again or even join the front office, or whatever. If not, then I wish him an awesome life and adios mf!

    Brady could’ve been both a minority owner in Miami, and a player. It would’ve taken a 3/4 majority approval from the teams. Remember Brady did meet with the Dolphins owner, who is a huge financial contributor to Michigan football. It could have been the reason for the 40 day retirement, so no tampering. Would the bucs have really held up Brady’s rights, if he had a stake in another team? Not saying I 100% believe all this, but it’s plausible. Who doesn’t like a good conspiracy theory. BTW, GOB does believe Oswald acted alone.

  11. SlyPirate Says:

    We all thought he was gone but he’s here. It’s great for Bucs fans and players.

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Well, it’s settled now……no need to dwell on it….it’s time for real football…on the field……no speculative minority ownership BS.

  13. Chris Tucker@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    You can NOT be a owner, and a player. NFL Rules prohibit this scenario, probably to keep super aggressive teams from offering a piece of their team to land a player they want real bad.

  14. Anonymous Says:

    I promise you 3/4ths of the teams in the league would not have approved Brady being a player and a minority owner. Would never happen.

  15. GOB Says:

    Just throwing this out. what if Brady asked for a trade and was told no? Bad bidness? Who the hell knows what really happened. Just glad we all get to see him try to climb the mountain again.

  16. Dewey Selmon Says:

    If we win the SB this year we might have to put a statue of Brian Flores outside RayJay.

  17. RPK Says:


    Do you still believe in Santa?

    Also, Journalism was a giant heap of garbage ‘back in the olden days’

    Before the internet, news was controlled ONLY by the powerful

  18. GOB Says:

    Dewey, BlahahHa BlahahHa good one

  19. Hodad Says:

    It means Brady has many, many opprtunities, and yes listens to all he can. For all we know he might’ve been offered 300 million to show up, and play on the new LIV tour. Listening to offers is a lot different than trying to make the move himself, like it was Tom’s idea to want to join the Fins. What matters is what he did, come back to us, and honor the last year of his contract. Now LFG!

  20. Orlando Kevin Says:

    I get people are interested in all things Brady. I get why you asked the question. At this point it’s been over asked and doesn’t matter. We always knew he was here short term. He’s playing this season and that’s all that matters. I’d rather know what’s he doing to help Trask.

  21. Vincente Says:

    Bucs need to sign Gerald Mccoy. Very cheap and he doesn’t have to do anything more than a rotational player to get the starters some rest.

  22. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @Defenserules. You’re absolutely right. It’s all about confirmation bias in the media. He neither confirmed or denied, but those who assumed it to be true will say it was true with certainty. And your right, Brady has been press trained by Belichick for 20 years. You’re not gonna get anything out of him that would be remotely seen as controversial. This story won’t ever die because anything associated with Brady is a goldmine for clicks. I would love to move on to football questions.
