Rob Ninkovich dropped some comments this week that has garnered the attention of social media.
The former Patriots linebacker and teammate to Tom Brady shared his thoughts on why the Tampa bay Bucs QB could retire after their playoff run is done.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if Tom Brady decided to walk away (this offseason) and do whatever he wants to do,” Ninkovich said on ESPN’s Get Up.”Right now, Tom is in bonus time. How many 44-year-old quarterbacks have we seen throw for the amount of yards and touchdowns? He’ll be 45 in August. So, at this point right now, what else does he have to prove to anybody? What else does he have to check off the list?”
Former Patriots tight end Christian Fauria made similar comments during Wednesday’s edition of the “Merloni & Fauria” show.
“It would not surprise me if, April, there was like a statement released from Brady expressing his gratitude, love and appreciation for both teams that he played with, all the coaches that mentored him, and the owners of the teams that he played for, his family, his parents, his kids, his baby mama, everybody,” Fauria said, via Audacy.
The legitimate MVP candidate had 5,316 passing yards and 43 touchdowns.
Brady has said he’ll stop playing when he’s no longer an effective quarterback, and that’s clearly not the case.
