Earlier this week, ESPN analyst Troy Aikman made a comment about Tom Brady that had the football world buzzing. Aikman said he believes the future Hall of Fame quarterback is “done playing.”
However, he also opened the door for a possible return by Brady to the league next season. “I don’t want to speak for Tom, but I wouldn’t rule anything out,” he said.
Aikman continued, “I would bet that just nothing is off the table as far as what may occur during the season or what Tom’s role may be. I think he’s done playing, but you just never know,” he told TMZ. His comments came after details regarding Jimmy Garoppolo’s injury status leaked.
Garoppolo reportedly failed his physical with the Raiders, leading the team to re-work his contract.
If Jimmy G can’t pass a physical before the start of the season, Brady could potentially sign with the team as its quarterback.
“If you want to buy into the conspiracy theory…it lends you to think that Tom Brad will sign for cheap, & I don’t know if that precedent wants to be set in the NFL.”
