NFL Insider Predicts Tom Brady Will Be 49ers’ Week 1 Starter: “It’s Unavoidable”

Tom Brady’s retirement won’t last long according to one NFL Insider.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk boldly claimed that he believes Tom Brady will be the starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers next season. Florio shared that the new info he received implied that Brady still wants to play and has his eyes on the 49ers:

“I got a great email,” Florio said. “I don’t know that the person wants his name to be shared, but it’s explaining what’s going on with Tom Brady. Classic mid-life crisis. Step 1, a divorce from the Patriots. Step 2, a short-term relationship with a trophy girl, the Buccaneers. Step 3, a late-night text to the high school sweetheart, a.k.a the 49ers.

“I’m telling you, it’s unavoidable. He’s not gonna lower himself to have to dirty himself the way Aaron Rodgers is. He’s gonna work it all behind the scenes. I just … I think he’s gonna be with the 49ers Week 1. I’m rooting for that so badly.”

The San Francisco 49ers are likely to move on from Jimmy Garapollo after they traded multiple draft picks to move up for Trey Lance, who is expected to the team’s starting quarterback in 2022. But could they postpone Lance’s promotion to QB1 for one more season to give Brady, a native of the Bay Area, a homecoming sendoff?
