Another day, another conspiracy theory regarding Tom Brady’s future with the Patriots.
On Tuesday, the 42-year-old quarterback announced he would be stepping down as the honorary co-chair of the Best Buddies Challenge: Hyannis Port after 16 years.
“This organization has become a part of my life. I love meeting the inspiring buddies at events, seeing their smiles, and hearing them talk about how Best Buddies has changed their lives for the better by helping them make friends at school and find meaningful jobs in their local communities,” Brady said in a statement, announcing teammate Julian Edelman and Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum as the new honorary co-chairs.
“I am incredibly proud of all the great things that we have accomplished with the Best Buddies Challenge: Hyannis Port over the years and I look forward to continuing to support the organization as a Global Ambassador,” he continued.
But some members of Patriots Nation believe there are ulterior motives behind the move, as discussed Wednesday on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Show.”
“The timing on this announcement and the very fact that it is being announced is concerning,” one of the co-hosts said.
Currently in the final of his contract, speculation surrounding Brady’s next move — and whether or not it includes the Patriots — has become a prominent storyline in recent months.
In July, The Post reported that Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen were house hunting in the suburbs outside New York City, fueling rumors the six-time Super Bowl champ was ready to move on from both New England and football.
For now, though, Brady and the 10-3 Patriots are onto Cincinnati, with another controversy nipping at their heels.
