Buccaneers’ Tom Brady has 3 words for 49ers’ Nick Bosa

Dec 8, 2022 at 12:08 PM--

Tom Brady has been in the league long enough that you would think the future Hall of Fame quarterback has seen it all and worries about nothing. As San Francisco 49ers rookie starting quarterback Brock Purdy hilariously said this week, "Dude's been playing football longer than I've been alive."

Brady might be a little concerned about his trip to Levi's Stadium this weekend, though. He'll be going up against pass-rushing phenom Nick Bosa, and the quarterback doesn't want to get on the defender's wrong side.

"Be nice Sunday," Brady posted this week via Instagram, adding a nervous emoji (h/t The Spun).

Bosa currently leads the league with 14.5 sacks this season. Three of those sacks came in the 49ers' 33-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins this past weekend. Bosa ranks second only to Za'Darius Smith of the Minnesota Vikings with 62 total pressures (Smith has 63), per Pro Football Focus.

On Wednesday, the NFL named Bosa the NFC Defensive Player of the Week, and the defensive end was named NFC Defensive Player of the Month for November.

The 49ers and Buccaneers kick off from Levi's Stadium at 1:25 p.m. PT on Sunday. San Francisco is currently a 3.5-point favorite. Bosa did not practice on Wednesday due to some hamstring irritation. We'll see if he's on the field for the team's Thursday session, which begins at 12:58 p.m. PT.

Rapoport: If the 49ers want Tom Brady, it won't be cheap

Don't expect Tom Brady to offer his favorite childhood team, the San Francisco 49ers, up a discount should head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch be interested. Rookie Brock Purdy earned over $700,000 during this season. He's set to cost the 49ers nearly $900,000 in 2023, a drop in the bucket compared to the $30 million the Tampa Bay Buccaneers paid Brady this season, and they will be accounting for his salary for years to come, with the future Hall of Fame quarterback's salary cap hit spread out through 2026, per Spotrac. NFL insider Ian Rapoport believes an offseason quarterback decision may come down to Purdy versus Brady. A significant factor will be the cost of

Should the 49ers sign QB Tom Brady this offseason?

The San Francisco 49ers are officially in offseason mode after their 31-7 NFC Championship loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and enter it with unfortunate news, as quarterback Brock Purdy suffered a torn UCL, which will keep him out for at least six months, pending on a choice for surgery. That leaves the 49ers with quarterback Trey Lance as their current top quarterback option heading into the offseason, who is progressing through his recovery from a torn ACL. However, there is another domino that must be addressed: the free agency of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, who has long been connected to the San Francisco 49ers, given the hometown connection. With the dots potentially aligning, should the 49ers sign Brady to a

Tom Brady weighs in on impact of Brock Purdy injury in 49ers-Eagles

Tom Brady, whose name is bound to come up once or twice in the coming months in connection with the San Francisco 49ers, voiced his opinion on Brock Purdy's injury and its impact on the NFC Championship Game. "Injuries play a role in every game," Brady told Jim Gray on the Let's Go! podcast, per Pro Football Talk, "and your margin of error changes quite a bit. Obviously, San Fran had, you know, really no chance to compete yesterday. That was tough just to see that happen, but at the same time, it's the reality of the sport. Philly deserved it. They had an incredible season. They played well on defense. They forced that
