Tom Brady returns to the NFL. Just 40 days after announcing his retirement, the GOAT Changed his mind and decided he wasn’t done with football yet. Of course, that means returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and head coach Bruce Arians.
These details are pretty important because of reports which surfaced after Tom Brady originally announced his retirement, stating that Brady and Arians’ relationship had deteriorated. One moment in particular was Arians would leave Brady and his offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich feeling undermined.
At the time, no one knew Brady was coming back and so this sparked massive speculation as to whether or not his relationship with Bruce Arians was the reason for his resignation. That set off a completely different tangent as to whether Brady wanted to return, but for a different team.
Now, of course, we know that Tom Brady is indeed back and will be playing in Tampa Bay. Jason Licht recently addressed the rumors that his quarterback and head coach aren’t getting along.

Recently ESPN’s Jenna Laine spoke to Jason Licht and asked him about the situation between Tom Brady and Bruce Arians which he said to “You’ll be surprised, we haven’t talked much about it. You can’t believe everything you hear and see and read. There will always be friction between staff, players and coaches. It’s just normal.”
When asked if an open line of communication should help with the friction, Licht added “Absolutely. And he (Tom Brady) loved his time here. And he told me that several times. Open communication is a great thing.”
Seeing that nothing serious is going on between Tom Brady and Bruce Arians is crucial for the team as it will be essential to their success this season. Of course, this could be seen as the GM simply hiding what’s really going on. A clearer picture will be drawn once the season rolls around.
