Tom Brady didn't deny that conversations between him and the Miami Dolphins were taking place but noted that he is happy to be a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Earlier this offseason, there was a crazy rumor spreading around the NFL community as the Dolphins reportedly wanted to sign Brady as their quarterback and also make him a minority owner.
Those talks were reportedly taking place while Brady was retired. Even though Brady was retired, he was still under the contract with the Buccaneers. When Brady decided to un-retire, he confirmed he would stay with the Buccaneers.
"I had a lot of conversations with a lot of people, I've had for the last three or four years of my career, about different opportunities when I'm done playing football, so, I kind of made a decision of what I'd like to do, and I'll get to be in the game of football," Brady said, per ESPN.
"I think for me, the most important thing is where I'm at now and what I hope to do for this team. That's been my commitment to this team and this organization. It's been so much fun for me to come here two years ago.
It's been almost 2½ now and it's been an incredible part of my football journey. And it's not over."
Brady on Rob Gronkowski's future
The Buccaneers fans were hoping Gronkowski would announce he was coming back shortly after Brady announced he was unretiring.
Brady has been out of retirement for nearly three months now but Gronkowski still hasn't decided whether or not to play this season. "I think it's just obviously totally up to him and we'd all love to play with him, but he's got to make the best decision for himself and he knows that," Brady said.
"Anyone who cares about him knows that he's doing what's right for him, which is trying to figure it out -- we don't have training camp for about six weeks, so whatever he's gotta do to figure it out.
I think we'll be hopeful he does, and if he doesn't, we still gotta go out there and figure out what to do."
