Dolphins Owner Reacts To Tom Brady Signing
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross reacted to a potential Tom Brady signing this week.
Heading into this offseason, Brady is set to become an unrestricted free agent.
He is not eligible to be tagged by the New England Patriots in any capacity, so Brady is a free agent in the truest sense of the term.
Up to this point, Brady has been linked to possibly joining the Los Angeles Chargers, Las Vegas Raiders, Tennessee Titans, Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins.
He has various ties to all those organizations, so him linking up with any of them would not be all that shocking.
I hear he’s going to be a free agent but we’re not allowed to talk to him until March. I don’t know why he would want to come to Miami as we are a rebuilding team. – Dolphins owner Stephen Ross on Tom Brady at Bloomberg Summit

And of course, he could always opt to remain with the Patriots.
This week, Ross was doing various media appearances in the lead-up to Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Florida.
One of the questions Ross was ultimately asked was whether he envisioned a scenario where Brady would come and be a part of his team.
Ross answered the question truthfully and bluntly.
“I hear he’s going to be a free agent but we’re not allowed to talk to him until March,” he said.
“I don’t know why he would want to come to Miami as we are a rebuilding team.”
The reason why some link Brady to the Dolphins is because he has ties to head coach Brian Flores, who previously served in various capacities with the Patriots.
Moreover, Miami clearly needs a quarterback – a void which Brady would fill better than current quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick can.
That said, it is clear that out of all the possibilities out there for Brady, him signing with the Dolphins is probably the unlikeliest one.
