Former Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick insists that he’s the motherf—-er Tom Brady was talking about in a viral interview back in 2021.
During an appearance on LeBron James’ show The Shop, Brady revealed that a team had pulled out on a deal to sign him at the last minute to stick with their QB.
“One of the teams, they weren’t interested at the very end. I was thinking, ‘You’re sticking with that motherf–ker?’”
On Tuesday, Fitzpatrick went on the Dan Le Batard and said he believes he’s the motherf—-er Brady was referring to in the interview.
“I think I still am. I think I still am that guy,” Fitzpatrick said “If you go back to that …before the 2019 season when the Dolphins are trying to assemble a roster that is going to help them get a better draft pick the next year so it’s not like that was going to be an attractive situation for Tom anyway. So I’m not sure why he was so upset about it, but I still to this day believe that I am that motherf–-er.”

Fitzpatrick would later go on Barstool Sports’ Pardon My Take podcast to provide more evidence that he’s the motherf’er Brady was talking about.
“It had to be me, he never shaked my hand…he just pissed me off because you’re in Buffalo and you’re playing New England, they’re kicking out a** every single year, they’re beating us, we finally in 2011 knocked them off, it was right in the beginning of the season, we had this great start and he threw five interceptions in the game…and he runs straight off, no handshake, no quarterback middle of the field…he just ran straight off”
Fitzpatrick said that he was bothered by Brady’s refusal to shake his hand after a loss.
“It bothered me so much because there was no respect there and every time I played him after that I was like let’s make this dude respect me”

Fitzpatrick said that Brady finally shook his hand during his final season with the Dolphins but he still feels like there was animosity there between the two.
