Tom Brady ended up in Tampa Bay and he led the team to great success and a Super Bowl trophy. Things were almost very different in this situation because the QB GOAT almost ended up in New Orleans instead.

ESPN’s Jeff Darlington said on Tuesday’s Get Up that Tom Brady was very close to signing to with New Orleans. He also acknowledged the fact that some people might try to discredit this report, but Darlington swears it is the truth.

“I think that people still underestimate how close Tom Brady was to signing with the New Orleans Saints up until he ultimately decided on the Bucs. I know that’s going to be a statement that people try to question, but it’s the truth.”

Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski were both big offseason pickups for the Buccaneers last year and it brought them to great success. If talks ended up a different way then Brady might have been vying to win the big game with a different game. We’ll never know how far they would have gone, because Brady ended up in Tampa Bay.

Brady is preparing for another season with the Buccaneers. Recent training footage of the QB showed that he’s no longer wearing a knee brace, something that a lot of fans really loved seeing. Hopefully, he’ll be good to go for another season, but he won’t be pitching the pigskin as a Saint.
