Following the 49ers’ loss to the Kansas City Chiefs at last year’s Super Bowl, Brady apparently told his then Patriots teammate, Wes Welker, that he wanted to retire with the 49ers. Welker is currently the 49ers wide receiver coach.
Brady had previously also named the 49ers his favourite team growing up. Apparently, the 49ers were aware of Brady’s interest in joining the team, but still remained skeptical.
Brady claimed that if the 49ers signed him, there would be “no free-agency tour, no bidding war, full stop; he would end his career where his love of football began, in scarlet and gold, allowing his parents to drive to [his] games for the first time since the 1990s.”
