Tom Brady has provided a riveting summer TV cliffhanger.
And viewers are likely to be left hanging indefinitely.
The Bucs’ 43-year-old quarterback and seven-time Super Bowl champion provided a sound bite sure to fuel speculation on all corners of the NFL landscape during the newest episode of HBO’s Sports Emmy-Award-winning series The Shop: Uninterrupted, which premieres Friday at 9:30 p.m.
Speaking of his brief venture into free agency in early 2020, Brady speaks of “One of the teams, they weren’t interested at the very end.”
“I was thinking, ‘You’re sticking with that motherf---er?’” Brady says in a promotional clip that continues building social-media steam.
The team to which Brady was referring isn’t clear, and he’s not likely to reveal it in this lifetime. But it’s well known the northern California native was eyeing San Francisco as a possible free-agent destination. The 49ers stuck with Jimmy Garoppolo.
Friday’s episode also features three-time NBA all-star Draymond Green, comedian Chelsea Handler and rapper Kid Cudi, among others.
