People are beginning to talk about who the motherf’er is Tom Brady was talking about in a viral interview and an NFL insider believes it’s Jimmy Garoppolo.
Back in 2021, while on LeBron James’ The Shop TV show, 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’er?’”
Ryan Fitzpatrick said that he was sure that he was the motherf’er but Brady shot that theory down.

“It wasn’t him…I like to keep them guessing, and unfortunately, with this coming out, I’d have to tell him,” Brady said while addressing Fitzpatrick’s comments.
During an appearance on the Maggie & Perloff, ESPN insider Seth Wickersham, who wrote a book about the Patriots, believes Garoppolo is the MFer Brady was referring to.
“I think it’s Garoppolo, (Brady) wanted to be a 49er, he was reaching out to the 49ers saying just so you know if you want me I won’t even go on a free agency tour open and closed, I would like to be a 49er.
The 49ers had just come off that Super Bowl loss, they knew that Brady was better than Jimmy G but they were displacing a popular locker room leader”
They worried about some of the film that Brady had. Kyle Shanahan had the entire staff watch all of his snaps in 2019, at the end of the day, they decided to stay put.”
