Tom Brady is making an attempt to determine why he is being fined by the NFL for one thing that did not occur.
During the newest set up of his SiriusXM “Let’s Go” podcast, the Buccaneers quarterback mentioned he is already appealed his $16,444 effective for trying to journey Cowboys security Malik Hooker on a fumble return in Tampa Bay’s season-ending wild-card loss.
“I’m a little disappointed though,” Brady mentioned. “I attempted to sort out him with my proper shoulder and missed him. And I wasn’t going to attempt to stick my arm out, so I used to be making an attempt to get him on the bottom. I attempted to get him on the bottom and I missed him. Completely! I did not even hit him. I attempted to journey him, however I did not!
“So I don’t know how you can get fined for something that didn’t even happen. Are they finishing an intention? It’s like targeting and you missed the person you hit and they still call it targeting. I gotta figure out and understand why this is the case. This is why I wish our NFLPA was stronger.”

Brady went on to clarify that he is hung out along with his household since his twenty third season ended final week.
“I did a lot of things with my kids and family, trying to get caught up like most probably football players do at the end of a long season,” Brady mentioned. “There’s a lot of decompression. I know we use that word a lot, but there is a real crash-landing element to all of this and doing it for as long as I have, there’s no soft landing either. It ends and it’s over. As much as you’d love for something to be a little softer on the way out, it’s just not the reality.”
Brady, who turns 46 in August, is a free agent for the second time in his profession. The quarterback — who’s been linked to Dolphins, Raiders, Titans, and 49ers — may return to Tampa for a twenty fourth NFL season, take his abilities from him to a different workforce or retire for good.
Earlier this week, a number of nameless Buccaneers gamers expressed that they do not consider Brady will return to Tampa Bay for a fourth season if he continues to play.
