Tom Brady goes on Howard Stern’s show to explain his decision to leave the Patriots

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.

NFL coming to Germany?

Published

The NFL looks poised to expand their reach in the European market beyond the United Kingdom.

The league announced that a German city will host an NFL regular season game in the near future. They are hoping for next season, but 2023 remains a more realistic goal due to scheduling conflicts that result from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The biding war to host an NFL contest is down to three German cities; Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich.

“After an initial period in which expressions of interest were received from multiple cities, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich have been invited to proceed to the `candidate phase’ of the process,” the league said in a statement. “Those cities will now participate in deeper conversations about staging games in Germany.” said the NFL in the statement.

More to come.

“It is with mixed emotions that I announce my goodbye to this great fan base,” said Gilmore.

“We enjoyed so much success together and you have been an incredible inspiration for my achievements.”

The 31-year old had spent the past four season with the franchise, posting 185 combined tackles, 52 passes defended, 11 interceptions, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries over a span of 56 combined games.

Jaguars trade cornerback CJ Henderson to Panthers

CJ Henderson’s tenure in Jacksonville did not last long.

Just over a year after picking him 9th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars have dealt the sophomore cornerback and a 2022 fifth round draft pick to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for tight end Dan Arnold and a 2022 third round selection.

Henderson, who many experts thought was picked way too high in the 2020 Draft, ended up playing in just 10 combined games for the Jaguars. He recorded just 44 combined tackles, six passes defended, one forced fumble and one interception during that span.

The Jaguars have had a disappointing start to 2021, going 0-3 despite a shiny new head coach and the first overall pick as their new starting quarterback.
