Not everyone buys the kitten tweet by Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
Former New England Patriots quarterback and longtime Patriots insider Scott Zolak expressed his skepticism and claims the Miami Dolphins rumors with Brady are “in play” still. Zolak notably reported on Brady from his earliest years with the Patriots in the 2000s.
“Brady may go to Miami. I think that’s in play. I do. I think the possibility of him coming out of retirement is definitely 100% in play,” Zolak said on “Zolak and Bertrand” on 98.5 The Sports Hub. “You can sit there and look at the kitten tweet from yesterday. Don’t buy that. This isn’t me saying it. This isn’t someone close to Brady. It started with Rich Eisen. Eisen’s at the Super Bowl. Multiple people dropped the hints. Colin Cowherd, he knows some FOX people. I don’t think he’s gonna call games. How does that deal get done? How do you sign a guy to that?”
“[A] $375 million, 10-year contract to call games, he’s not even gonna do it next year,” Zolak added. “I know his handlers have moved to Miami. It’s built for him. He’s looking at private schools for his kids. Cowherd talks about the San Francisco offense. He’s not talking about San Francisco. He’s talking about [head coach] Mike McDaniel in Miami.”
Brady tweeted humorously in reaction to the first wave of Dolphins rumors from Eisen.
“Anyone who thinks I have time to come back to the NFL has never adopted a 2 month old kitten for their daughter,” Brady wrote.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion previously announced his retirement on February 1 for a second year in a row, and he claimed it’s “for good” this time around. Eisen said he heard rumblings at the NFL Combine that there is some buzz between Brady and the Dolphins and to “keep an eye on that“. The Dolphins were previously tied to Brady in 2022 until the team’s prior tampering with Brady surfaced in the Brian Flores lawsuit.
It nixed an attempted package deal of Brady and former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton coming to Miami. Instead, Brady returned for the Bucs for another season after his 40-day retirement.
