We are in the middle of a quarantine, so there isn’t exactly a lot to do. Tom Brady decided to hop to Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show for an exclusive two-hour long interview.

During the interview, he opened up in-depth about the shocking decision to leave the New England Patriots in favour of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason. After all, nobody in their right mind would’ve expected this even a few months ago.

“There was a time before last offseason, I had a contract that got restructured, and basically, from my standpoint, I knew that at the end of the year I was going to become a free agent for the first time in my career,” said Brady

“And I had spoken about it with the ownership of the team, Mr. Kraft, and he was good with it. I had spoken about it with coach Belichick, he was good with it. That’s what we decided to do. And if we, over the course of the season, and the offseason, there wasn’t a ton of substantial conversations for us to continue. We had some. And we both thought about it, and in the end, it was just a great way to end two decades. We had a great conversation … I said this before, there is no bigger fan of the New England Patriots organization than me. But at the same time, that doesn’t mean that I could continue to play there at the highest level. I feel like I want to prove to myself that I can still perform at the highest level.”

Brady also added he isn’t concerned about potentially tarnishing his legacy by leaving the Patriots organization, and emphasizes the importance of doing what’s best for his career and his family.

Former NFL star thinks paying college athletes is ‘going to destroy some people’

Reggie Bush had an incredible college football career that led to him winning the Heisman Trophy in 2005, which led to an eventful 11 seasons in the NFL. Despite his successful background, he admits that he has some concerns about the likelihood that college athletes will finally get paid.

“Guidance is the one thing that young athletes coming through the college system miss on so much…I missed on it. They’re about to start paying college athletes. This is something that has never been experienced before, and it’s going to destroy some people if their foundation is not in the right place.” said Bush in a recent interview with Playboy.

He believes that paying them money could lead to more serious issues, especially if players do not have the proper knowledge on how to handle all this newfound money.

“The one thing I wish I had early in my career is proper financial knowledge…I hired good agents, and I hired a good team. But I allowed that good team to make decisions for me. I’m not saying I’m going bankrupt, but if I had the proper knowledge back then, some things would be different.” added Bush.

“People just assume, ‘Well, you got all this money, so you’re good.’ It’s actually the opposite. The more money you have, the more danger you’re in, because now you’re a freaking open target for a lot of people. It’s a nasty world out there, and it’s about to get nastier”.

The 35-year old, who earned over $63 million in the NFL from 2006-2016, amassed 5490 rushing yards, 3598 receiving yards, and 54 touchdowns over 134 combined games.
