Tom Brady References A “Next Year” In Tampa

October 10th, 2022

Joe realizes this was said in jest by Tom Brady tonight, but considering Brady is such a calculated speaker, it’s easy to believe a kernel of truth might be part of the equation.

On his Let’s Go! show on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio, Brady had New York Yankees star Aaron Judge as a guest. Brady is a fan of Judge, he said, and Brady always seems to have an extra interest in northern California athletes like himself.

Brady also added that he has great awareness of Judge after spending time training at the Yankees spring facility in Tampa since he’s joined the Buccaneers.

During the interview, Brady asked Judge for his comment on joining Brady and the Bucs next season as a pass catcher.

“Obviously, having such an incredible year and, you know, now on the brink of [baseball] free agency, I was certainly wondering what it would take to get you down here in Tampa to be a tight end for us next year,” Brady said to Judge. “So as a free agent, it looked pretty good to me the way he runs, the size, the catch radius, the power. I mean, this could be something that we could be on to. I know you were a good high school player.”

Judge replied that he’d be up for a split contract and he can handle red zone work.

But the line of intrigue for Bucs fans has to be Brady referencing a “next year” in Tampa. Maybe, just maybe, he’s not finished with playing football, or playing for the Bucs.

    Howard has adopted Brady’s diet as much as possible.
    Yes, it’s hard to do.
    Yes, health food is ironically expensive.
    Yes, the health benefits are real and come quickly.

  2. Howard Cosell Says:

    Obviously Bucs should keep Brady as long as he can and wants to play NFL football

    Howard believes the days of Scooter getting mugged and knifed by defenders are over.

    Every zebra has been put on notice that missed DPI against Scooter will result in intense media scrutiny.
    Howard looks forward to a beautiful yellow flag at the opponents 10 yard line next time Scooter goes deep

  4. Bradybucs Says:

    He will keep playing to spite Gisele. Brady is never forgiving her for what she did this season. I convinced Gisele is going through a mid life crisis. Gisele hasnt had this many headlines since the mid 2000s. Its actually good for her she is getting her name back out in the public. Gisele is going to drag this on, Felger and mazz in Boston said Gisele is going for a smear campaign against Brady

  5. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    There is no question the way that was presented to Judge…..Brady meant playing with him and the Bucs.

    IMO……a divorce would open up the door for another year or two….and, it makes zero sense for him to play elsewhere……we have his team under contract…
    Jensen, Evans, Gage, Godwin, Wirfs, Mason, Goedeke, D. Smith, Lenny, White and two young TEs……and even Hainsey for a backup.

  6. Bradybucs Says:

    There is always something going on with Brady good or bad. People say Brady is boring. Boston media turned hateful towards Brady in the end. Yesterdays game like Brady said I didnt throw the flag. The national media are mad a Brady.

    Hahaha, this would be nice, but I don’t think NFL referees have enough respect for Scotty Miller for him to get a call go his way.

  8. Marc Coppola Says:


    100% AGREE. they keep calling it the “worst flag in 20 years”. Bullspit! Remember when Jemis got unintentionally grazed at the shoulder pad in week 2? They threw a flag. That is only one of the hundreds of examples I cant point to.

    At the end of the day it’s drawing a lot of attention because it involved Brady. Had that been any other QB, the call would have gotten (maybe) :30 seconds of airtime. Not an entire week.

  9. geno711 Says:

    158 roughing the passer penalties called in 2021. There are 30 teams. That means each team is typically responsible for a little more than 5 roughing the passer penalties against an opposing QB.

    Tom Brady had only one (1) called when he was stepping back to throw in 2021. That does not fit the ESPN narrative that Brady got more calls than other QB’s.

    Shouldn’t he have had more than 5 roughing the passer calls. Especially since he threw more than any other QB last year.

    The world-wide leader in sports is more interested in social media sound bites than actual reporting of news.

  10. WillieG Says:

    Howard speaks of himself in the third person. WillieG hates that.

  11. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    If Brady gets divorced, there is no one to stop him from returning to football.
    He wants to win another Super Bowl, but so far it does not look like we are a Super Bowl team.
    It can only get worse next year, not better, so Brady may decide to go play elsewhere ?
    If he does decide to play next year, I will be very surprised if it is here in Tampa.
    Not that I want him to go, because I don’t, just calling it as I see it.

  12. Ab Says:

    Brady deciding whether (and where) to play next season doesn’t hinge primarily on football…

    It’s what best continues to drive his profile and brand and what sets him up best, post-football…not that there is anything wrong with that…guy deserves whatever he can get and whatever he wants to do

  13. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Been saying it since he unretired. Gizzard isn’t mad only because he came back. She knows he’s not quitting anytime soon.

  14. BucsBro Says:

    Thank you Yoko Ono Gisele! Set Tommy free!

  15. Redeemer Says:

    I go back and forth. In some ways, a divorce could make it less likely he’ll return. Divorce always impacts kids the hardest. They need him now more than ever. On the other hand, it’s clear she was driving him to retire. Why leave the thing you love most, when performing at such a high level. IDK. He knows nothing else he does will give him this kind of challenge and reward.

    Tom Brady Reportedly “Very Hurt” That Gisele Bündchen Hired a Lawyer, But “Doesn’t Want to Fight”

  17. orlbucfan Says:

    What exactly did Gisele do wrong? According to the gossip, Saint Methusaleh12 promised he would retire. Also said rumors claim that she has built some sort of beauty Biz that makes more $$$millions$$$ than he ever will. She sounds like a woman, wife and mother who doesn’t want her man crippled for life. I dislike him cos eversince he’s been here, it’s been the St. Tom Brady Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Horse and Bullsh1t. And you can bet that’s why this tempest in a pinhole over some call has dragged out.

  18. orlbucfan Says:

    By the way, Yoko Ono never divorced her golden goose. Unlike Gisele, she was no success before she met him. Lennon was ready to divorce her years before he was murdered.

  19. Listnfrmafar Says:

    She’s going to beat him to his biography book. He ain’t coming back. There comes a time when healing doesn’t happen so quickly as it used to, we are witnessing this now, he is beat up. I get sore after raking leaves, I can’t imagine getting thrown to the ground by Donald or Garrett feels good in the morning.

  20. T REX Says:

    no way…zero chance

  21. Oneilbuc Says:

    Orlbucfan She has more money than Brady but I still hope they work their marriage out because to me that’s more important than football.

  22. Dewey Selmon Says:

    No Viagra needed for me tonight after hearing those words. Boing!

  23. Redeemer Says:

    @Listnfrmafar, but you don’t have Alex there with his special water bottle, and rubber bands. HGH and Testosterone helps too

  24. steele Says:

    Grasping at straws. Brady was doing corporatespeak, “for us next year”, and jokingly. I put no stock in the comment itself.

    But if the divorce is a reality, that does increase the odds that he keeps playing. If. If he is uninjured. If he is mentally fresh and still loves the grind. If he doesn’t have other interests lined up that will make an old man happier.

    I bet it will be another spring 2023 wait and see.

  25. SufferingSince76 Says:

    WillieG, 😆😅😂🤣

  26. Beeej Says:

    Brady’s skills would have to erode a LOT from where he is right now for me to not want him as the qb

  27. Bucanero Says:

    Will Cross that bridge when we get there

  28. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Yankee fans and NY media would go nuts if Judge became TE for Bucs – Brady is awesome.

  29. Anonymous Says:

    Wonder if everyone is gonna be up in arms about the roughing the passer call on Carr against KC. That was HORRIBLE. Plus it was a fumble…


  30. David Says:

    Another game changing horrible roughing the passer call just happened in the KC/Raiders game. Potentially 10 point swing before halftime
    In hoping the competition committee addresses this at the next meeting ….
    “at some point they have to take the dresses off“


  31. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Off subject but roughing the passer on Chris Jones just now. Announcers are griping about it being a bad call. Can’t make this stuff up. Calling it a controversy already.

  32. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Thanks ref’s for taking some of the attention of the Bucs roughing call!

  33. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Ref you suck chant . Lol

    News report out OBJ plans to sign with the Bucs in November

  37. Scooter Says:

    Watching Monday Nite football, Kelce and Mahomes are so cocky they’re obnoxious.

  38. Oneilbuc Says:

    This game I’m watching to night looks rig to me watch the raiders drive the field and kick a feild goal.

  39. Oneilbuc Says:

    It went the other way I was wrong it just didn’t look right going for a 2 point conversion by either team.

  40. westernbuc Says:

    Giselle needs to get with the program. Tommy is playing until he can’t anymore.

  41. Anonymous Says:

    Brady is not going to go play in another system elsewhere at 46 years old, y’all are dumb for even thinking he would do something like that. Like for real, he loves the Bucs and Tampa and if he continues playing that is where he will be.

  42. Rod Munch Says:

    Just meaningless banter, but worth noting that he didn’t say Miami I guess.

  43. Oneilbuc Says:

    If I’m Brady I would come back because the NFL is a weak and soft game anyway. The quarterback position is the most overrated position in all sports and it’s the very position that’s ruining the NFL and football right now. I’m just about done with the NFL. If they don’t stop with theses RP flags I’m going to be done with the NFL. I think a lot of people will be done also either you play the game or you don’t. High school and College football is becoming better than the NFL eventually they’re going to be playing 7 on 7 . So yes Brady should come back because he doesn’t have to get hit anymore. NFL is becoming trash 🗑️ football and yall know it . I’m tired of hearing about CTE either you play football or don’t.

  44. Oneilbuc Says:

    Brady can come back next year and he can have his daughter as his back up quarterback for when he retires she will be ready to play lol 🤣🤣🤣!!!

  45. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oneilsuckyall has stooped to a new level bring Brady’s children into his ridiculous banter. The speed of the game has increased to a level that these old refs can’t keep up with it. 300 lb Dlinemen running 4.5 40’s is crazy and it shows in the injury reports. The NFL needs younger refs that haven’t had cataract surgery and orthopedic shoes. Fire them ALL I say and trade them in for newer models.

  46. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafart. That wasn’t shade towards his daughter hell my baby can go play quarterback in the NFL now. After last night high school and College football is becoming a better game than the NFL. And all this 4.5 speed means nothing playing defensive tackle or on the offensive line. It’s about having quick feet . It’s a lot of fast line backers that can’t get to the ball it’s players on the practice squad that’s faster than Mike Evans and Godwin but they not as good as them .

  47. JVZ Says:

    Still, ignorance calling a woman names they don’t even know. Judgement, judgement, jusgement. You are all showing who you really are. I wonder how that may feel! Tell us, “How does that really feel inside to do this?” You deserve what you will receive soon…..

  48. Sharon Worden Says:

    Tom Brady is the man,he has respect and love for family, football and life pure class. I couldn’t be happier if Tom played on,but don’t want him hurt either I always thought he’d be a quarterback coach time will tell as for Gisele spoiled and greedy be a mother and wife like other football stars I feel for the children love you TB 12 forever let’s go

  49. Ontario Mike Says:

    Re last nites Kelce show, watch his first second half TD. So easy to have the inside route when his receivers clear out the left side for him. Reid clearly out-schemes Lefty. His play designs are innovative to say the least! We need that kind of thinking from our OC.

  50. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    @Ontario Mike
    You are absolutely correct! Lefty would not make a pimple on Andy Reid’s Arse!

  51. SPARKY Says:

    I’m with Oneilbuc on this. When you start playing football in junior high, by the time you are a senior in high school you know the danger football has to your body. If you continue to play in college and professional you know the risk. It’s like boxing, soccer, cage fighting, wrestling, and the like. These guys have to figure out if the money and love of the game is worth it. We are getting to a game of 7 on 7 with no pads.

  52. Oneilbuc Says:

    I hope Brady come back and Steve Young , Jim Kelly, Warren Moon, Joe Montana and Elway all need to come back and play . Because in today’s NFL they will still be in their prime at their ages now. Lol 🤣
