Well, we can cross Ryan Fitzpatrick off this list.
On Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” podcast, Fitzpatrick discussed Brady’s “That Motherf—ker Clip” on HBO’s The Shop and assumed that the SuperBowl champion was referring to him.
“It had to be me,” Fitzpatrick said. He then added, “Zero respect. He’d never shake my hand.”
However, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers star said Monday on his Let’s Go! podcast that Ryan Fitzpatrick was not the “motherf–ker” he referenced in an episode of The Shop.
Fitzpatrick was right in thinking it was him because the Miami Dolphins were thought to be an option for Brady in 2020, but a tampering investigation by the NFL revealed Miami vice chairman Bruce Beal had impermissible communications with Brady starting in August 2019, when he was still signed with the New England Patriots.
The Dolphins had Fitzpatrick signed for the 2020 season, and he was positioned as the starter when Brady was making his final decision in free agency.
Instead, Brady took his talents to the Buccaneers before Miami selected Tua Tagovailoa in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft.
The mystery remains unsolved. Brady is sure to let everybody know once he fully retires.
