It’s not supposed to happen that way on your own podcast.

Buccaneers quarterback (for now) Tom Brady, appearing on his Let’s go! podcast, got testy with longtime friend and co-host Jim Gray, for asking a much more innocuous question than the toast Gray once gave Pete Rose.

Gray asked Brady if he’d be playing in 2023. Says Brady, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Weather“If I knew what the fuck I was going to do, I would have fucking done it already. I take it one day at a time. I appreciate you asking. Thanks.”

At least he said thank you.

Brady becomes a free agent in March. Until then, the Buccaneers have exclusive negotiating rights with Brady. Which means no one else can talk to him or his agent.

But we know how it goes. Tampering happens, especially at the Scouting Combine. It’s only a problem if the team doing it is too prying, too cowardly, too brazen in pursuing Brady. Like the Dolphins were a year ago.

Potential destinations include the Raiders, 49ers, Titans, Dolphins, Jets, Panthers if Sean Payton ends up there, and maybe even the Patriots.
