Tom Brady had a very disappointing season, and now we have to wait to see where he will play next season or if he will even play.
The Buccaneers got embarrassed by the Cowboys in the Wild Card game and then fired offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich which brings more questions about where Brady will end up.
After an 8-9 regular season and a quick playoff exit, Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles is making a change to his staff.
Bowles fired offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich on Thursday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. The team later announced the move, along with a slew of personnel changes.
In addition to Leftwich, five assistants were dismissed, including running backs coach Todd McNair and assistant defensive line coach Lori Locust, and three others retired, including quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen.
“We appreciate the hard work and contributions that all of these coaches made to our successes over the past four seasons,” Bowles said in a statement. “As a collective group, we did not meet the high standards that had been set for this past year and my focus now is on doing what is needed to ensure a successful 2023 season. These were very difficult decisions but something that I felt was necessary for our football team going forward.”
A few teams could probably use his services, given the QB play some of them had this season, but according to The Washington Post’s Jason La Canfora, there are four main destinations for Brady.
Those teams include the Dolphins, 49ers, Raiders, and Ravens. Dolphins don’t make sense on their end, given Brady isn’t the best downfield thrower for Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, but the 49ers and Raiders make a little sense. Especially considering the Raiders and Derek Carr seem to be on a path to parting ways, and the 49ers QB room isn’t the best right now, even though it’s packed. The Ravens would only make sense if they and Lamar Jackson didn’t come to terms on a new deal.
Either way, it’s going to be an exciting off-season.
