Football fans may not get to see Tom Brady on an NFL field anymore, but they’ll still hear him speak. SiriusXM announced the legendary quarterback will continue to partner with former Arizona Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray for the third season of Let’s Go!
Appearing on Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jim Gray this week, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid revealed he had been trying to recruit a legendary wide receiver to come out of retirement and play for him.
That receiver was Larry Fitzgerald who has not played since 2020.
“I’ve tried to hire Larry 15 different times. I begged him even when he was out for a year to come back. Come on!” Reid said.
Brady, who is entering his first year of retirement, jumped in and shared a similar story.
“That makes two of us,” Brady said. “I tried to recruit Larry many times, and he kept shooting me down. … Fitz, he’s like, ’No, I’m pretty good here.’ I said ‘Wait a minute, hold on.’ … He said ’Nah, I’m pretty happy with where I’m at.’ I think he made a good decision.”
It’s crazy to think that Fitzgerald could’ve been a Chief, Patriot, or Buccaneer at some point in his career.
Instead, the 11-time Pro Bowler spent his entire 17-year career with the Cardinals, racking up 1,432 receptions for 17,492 yards with 121 touchdown catches.
He never officially retired, but it’s safe to say his playing days are long gone.
