New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick admitted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the better option for Tom Brady than the Patriots.
After the 2020 season, Brady left the Patriots after 20 years to join the Buccaneers.
Brady, who led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory last season, returns to Foxborough this Sunday to face the Patriots.
“I think we’ve been through all the dynamics of that. There were a lot of things there,” Belichick said on WEEI. “He looked at his options and made his decision. We weren’t as good an option as Tampa. You’d have to ask him about that, but it wasn’t a question about not wanting him, that’s for sure.”
