We’re midway through the NFL season, and we’re already hearing rumors about Tom Brady leaving the Bucs.
Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer believes Brady could sign with the Niners next season if he’s available in the offseason.

“If you’ve got this championship roster, do you put it in Trey Lance’s hands if Tom Brady knocks on the door?” Breer said (h/t KNBR 680). “It’s something they discussed internally in January and February. Let’s say they win the Super Bowl … and let’s say Jimmy leaves after they win the Super Bowl, and let’s say Tom Brady wants to go there.
“This would check a lot of boxes. Being able to finish in San Francisco, great offensive coach in Kyle Shanahan, great talent around him. Throwing to Deebo Samuel, and Brandon Aiyuk, [George] Kittle. You’ve got Christian McCaffrey behind you. There are a lot of fun possibilities out there with Tom.”
"I don't think Brady need a 'fairy-tale ending', but do you think he wants to go out like [this]?"@AlbertBreer joins @ZoandBertrand to discuss the possibility of Tom Brady signing with his hometown 49ers next year 🤔

Earlier this year, it was revealed that 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan wanted to sign Tom Brady but was talked out of it in 2019.

Niners fans gave mixed reactions to the possibility of signing Brady in the offseason.
I'm gonna pass here. He finally looks to have taken a step back. He's been objectively worse than Jimmy so far this year.
Not to mention the commitment to Lance. 0% chance they give up on him like that. https://t.co/ErXm44Am9Q

It may be best for @TomBrady to retire. However, if the 49ers wanted to give Trey Lance another year, I can see Brady coming home and winning his last SB with his childhood team. Would be a pretty cool fairytale ending. @JohnLynch49ers @JedYork @MaioccoNBCS @49ers @AlbertBreer https://t.co/nQ93bwA2HQ

I'm not Against this, BUT, if SF goes after him, they need to Trade Trey to somewhere he finally can play and Develop. You can't sit him behind Brady, and the kid been a Benchwarmer for another season. Would be 5 Games in the last 4 Years for Lance. That's not Good… https://t.co/EbkFPKZeXu
