Tom Brady made waves in the NFL world when he decided he would not return to the New England Patriots after the 2019 season. At the time, many wondered if he would join his youth team, the San Francisco 49ers.

While he ultimately chose to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 49ers could have had a real shot at Brady if they wanted to. Ultimately, they decided against it, which made sense at the time. Jimmy Garoppolo had just put them in the Super Bowl and had he completed another pass to Emmanuel Sanders they might as well have a championship.

Since then, the 49ers have shown little faith in Garoppolo. So much so with Tom Brady to announce his return to the NFL, many speculated if the 49ers would make a move for him this time.

Shannon Sharpe took this into account and offered his thoughts on why San Francisco’s decision not to pursue Tom Brady twice is the right move for the franchise.

In a segment of Fox Sports’ ‘Undisputed’Shannon Sharpe was quoted as saying “The first time, Jimmy G took her to the Super Bowl. They didn’t expect him to get injured as a sophomore, but that was kind of his story, either he’s injured or he makes a stupid decision that costs you the game. But at the end of the day, I just don’t think Tom is a good fit with Kyle Shanahan’s offense.”

To explain this last comment, Sharpe added “They have guns, great receivers, the way Kyle can dial in the game in progress is second to none. But it just doesn’t fit that well. There will be a power struggle and we saw early on how it was with Bruce Arians. It wouldn’t work.”

Sharpe added “Plus, they gave up so much to get Trey Lance. And to stagnate his growth even more, I just think no. So I think they made the right decision.”

Whether Tom Brady actually wanted to force his way to San Francisco, we probably won’t know until he finally retires. For now, he’s staying in Tampa Bay for his third year and continuing his quest for his 8th ring in 2022.
