Tom Brady insists he has a great level of respect for Bruce Arians and everything is all good between them. Brady announced his retirement from football in early February but decide to un-retire on 14 March. Two weeks later, Arians stepped down from his position as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach.
After Brady retired, reports that surfaced suggested there was a rift between Brady and Arians. After Brady decided to un-retire and Arians retired from coaching, some started to suspect that Brady wanted Arians gone or he would have not returned.
"Zero whatsoever," Brady said of Arians, per ESPN "He and I have a great relationship. Part of the reason I chose here was because of Bruce. I mean, he and I have been -- incredible communication -- I have great respect for him.
He knows how I feel about him -- that's the most important thing. And I know how he feels about me."
Brady on the Miami Dolphins rumors
While Brady was retired, there was a crazy rumor going around. The Dolphins reportedly wanted to bring Brady as their quarterback and make him a minority owner of the team.
"I had a lot of conversations with a lot of people, I've had for the last three or four years of my career, about different opportunities when I'm done playing football, so, I kind of made a decision of what I'd like to do, and I'll get to be in the game of football," Brady said, when asked about the Dolphins rumors.
"I think for me, the most important thing is where I'm at now and what I hope to do for this team. That's been my commitment to this team and this organization. It's been so much fun for me to come here two years ago.
It's been almost 2½ now and it's been an incredible part of my football journey. And it's not over." After Brady decided to return to football, many believed that Rob Gronkowski would decide to return for 2022.
June has arrived but Gronkowski hasn't yet decided on whether or not to play in 2022. "I think it's just obviously totally up to him and we'd all love to play with him, but he's got to make the best decision for himself and he knows that," Brady said.
"Anyone who cares about him knows that he's doing what's right for him, which is trying to figure it out -- we don't have training camp for about six weeks, so whatever he's gotta do to figure it out.
I think we'll be hopeful he does, and if he doesn't, we still gotta go out there and figure out what to do."
