As evidence points to other teams, one person still believes Tom Brady was dissing the 49ers

Jun 26, 2021 at 12:57 PM--

Let's be honest. NFL news has been slow. So naturally, something insignificant like this is going to be somewhat of a talking point this weekend. HBO released a clip this past week for an episode of The Shop: Uninterrupted. In it, Tom Brady discussed his experience with free agency last year and specifically spoke of one NFL team that opted not to pursue the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

Said Brady in the promo: "One of the teams, they weren't interested at the very end. I was thinking, you're sticking with that motherf--ker?"

Many speculated that Brady was talking about the San Francisco 49ers, who had looked into the possibility of bringing in the quarterback but opted to stick with the younger Jimmy Garoppolo following a Super Bowl run.

Adam Maya of NFL Media shared more of what Brady said, now that the episode has premiered.

"I look back, I'm like, there's no (expletive) way I would have went to that team," Brady said via Maya. "But they said they didn't want me, and I know what that means. I know what that feels like and I'm going to (expletive) you up because of that."

Looking at the list of rumored teams interested in Brady, you can easily rule out a few based on the comments. You can seemingly rule out San Francisco because several reports stated that it was one of the teams Brady preferred. Plus, Garoppolo has said that his relationship with Brady remains good. It would seem like an odd thing to say about the 49ers quarterback if that is true.

Maya concludes that two possibilities are the Chicago Bears and the Las Vegas Raiders.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is sticking with the idea that Brady was talking about 49ers and Garoppolo, though. He doesn't believe it was Chicago.

"Per multiple sources with direct knowledge of the situation, it wasn't the Bears," wrote Florio.

While the Pro Football Talk writer says nothing about the possibility of Brady talking about the Raiders, he does feel things still point back to San Francisco despite Brady saying there is no way he would have gone to the team that seemingly dismissed him.

"The trail of breadcrumbs keeps leading back to the 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo," Florio adds. "So what if both players are represented by the same agent? Brady basically represents himself, negotiating the number and telling Don Yee to draw up the paperwork. Brady's not going to alter his opinions about other Yee clients."

Which team and quarterback do you think Brady was talking about? Leave a comment below.

PFF: 49ers QB Trey Lance one of players under most pressure to perform in Year 2

While there are several success stories of rookies flourishing immediately in the NFL, there are certain players, especially quarterbacks, whose learning curves require some more seasoning. Take Peyton Manning, who threw for 28 interceptions in his rookie year before becoming one of the best quarterbacks of all time, as an example. Earlier this week, PFF named ten players from the 2021 NFL Draft class that are under the most pressure to perform in Year 2, and unsurprisingly, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance was amongst the group. Lance, who was selected third overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, played

49ers TE George Kittle's one goal: 'Win a Super Bowl'

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle made headlines last week, telling Kevin Hart on the LOL Network show, Cold as Balls, that he would love to see the NFL add a second bye week. "Seventeen games is a lot," Kittle said. "It's a lot of games with one bye, whether it's Week 4 or the bye is Week 11. I'm advocating for two byes." Kittle is preparing to enter his sixth NFL season. San Francisco made the tight end a fifth-round draft pick in 2017. While he has come close to winning a championship, he has yet to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Kittle came extremely close during the 2019 season. However, he watched his Niners collapse in the
