Tom Brady is supposedly tired of getting questions about the possibility of replacing Aaron Rodgers as the New York Jets’ starting quarterback, as the NFL legend quickly dismissed another comeback from retirement.
The Jets relied on Zach Wilson after Rodgers went down with a season-ending Achilles injury, making just four plays in his first game under center for the Jets in Week 1 action against the Buffalo Bills.
New York’s front office executives are adamant about keeping Wilson as the team’s starter so far, and have denied reports that they called Brady after it was confirmed Rodgers had undergone surgery.
Up SiriusXM show ‘Let’s go!’ On Monday, Brady was asked by co-host Jim Gray if the Jets had contacted him to inquire about any interest he might have in making another NFL call.
Brady – a seven-time Super Bowl champion – interrupted Gray before he could even finish, saying, “No, no, no. Next question. You already know. I love being with you on Monday and I love what we have to offer.”

Then, Gray, along with Brady and third co-host Larry Fitzgerald, shifted their focus to incoming guest Deion Sanders.
Wilson got his first start of the season last Sunday in a 30-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium, completing 12 of 27 pass attempts for 170 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.
Brady ended his 23-season NFL career in February after Tampa Bay lost to the Cowboys in the Wild Card Playoffs, but has faced continued speculation that he could be brought out of retirement for a second time this season by quarterback-hungry teams. as he led the league in completions last year and won the NFC South with the Bucs.
“I’m sure I’m not playing anymore, so I’ve tried to make that clear, and I hate to keep confessing that because I’ve said that to people many times,” the 46-year-old former quarterback told Sports Illustrated in June.
“But I’m looking forward to my broadcasting job at Fox next year,” he added.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity that presents itself with the Raiders and we are working on that, along with the other different things that I am a part of in my professional and personal life, spending as much time with my children as I can and seeing them grow up and supporting the different things that they do, and that’s a really important job, and I take them all quite seriously.”
Brady would only be permanently barred from ever playing in the NFL again if his bid to buy a minority stake in the Raiders is approved.
The future Pro Football Hall of Famer, who dated Russian supermodel Irina Shayk last summer, was recently honored by Patriots fans during halftime of a 24-17 home loss in Foxoboro, Massachusetts.
Brady has also backed Rodgers, who he previously described as “dangerous,” to succeed with the Jets despite his first year being canceled due to injury.
