Commanders tabbed as worst Tom Brady destination

Tom Brady's decision to walk away from football after a glittering NFL career was met with skepticism at first. The quarterback retired once before - something that lasted barely a month as the temptation of one final go-around proved too strong.

This time though, it feels different. Brady's signed a lucrative deal with FOX Sports to be their lead analyst in 2024 and is also looking to become a minority owner of the Las Vegas Raiders, which should be confirmed in the not-too-distant future.

Despite this, people continue to speculate about whether Brady could be coaxed out of retirement as his 46th birthday approaches. But according to Adam Hulse of Sportskeeda, the Washington Commanders are the last place the legendary signal-caller should be thinking about joining if he did opt to give it another try.

"The Washington Commanders have been desperately seeking a proven veteran quarterback to help them make a return to the NFL playoffs. Even head coach Ron Rivera has been vocal about their desire to find one. This means they would almost definitely be interested in signing Tom Brady if he returns to the NFL. The NFC is clearly the weaker conference this year and theoretically provides an easier path to the postseason. But the Commanders lack depth in their offensive skill positions and also rank in the top 10 for the most difficult 2023 schedules. Playing in the same division as three teams that made it to the NFL playoffs last year is a big factor behind that."

Again, the chances of Brady coming back are remote. It's also unlikely the Commanders would throw their hat in the ring as head coach Ron Rivera bets his job on Sam Howell providing the consistency needed at football's most pivotal position.
