Recently retired NFL quarterback Tom Brady made an appearance on the HBO show The Shop: Interrupted back in June of 2021 while still with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On the show, he spoke of his shock that one NFL team was “sticking with that motherf***er” over him back in free agency in 2020. Now some NFL fans feel that the person the quarterback was referring to was then-Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

How the Brian Flores Lawsuit Affects the Brady-Fitzpatrick NFL Issue

The prominent quarterback in question was the former Tampa Bay signal-caller, per Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post. The lawsuit states this happened in early 2020, right before he was set to become a free agent.

Former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the NFL. Within the lawsuit, it contains an accusation that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross attempted to get Flores to breach the league’s tampering rule.

The suit claims that the Dolphins owner invited the former head coach onto his yacht for lunch at the same time that a “prominent quarterback” was going to show up on the same yacht.

Fitzpatrick played two seasons with Miami, throwing for 5,620 yards with 33 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. The 44-year-old Buccaneers quarterback had 9,949 yards passing, 83 touchdowns and 24 interceptions in his two seasons with Tampa Bay, winning a Super Bowl in the process.

For Dolphins fans, it is a case of what could have been.
