The Bucs Report
Special for Sports Talk Florida
Rumors of the Buccaneers trading quarterback Tom Brady to the Dolphins were slapped harder than Chris Rock at an award show. The Beantown hockey player rumor has been debunked multiple times. Bucs head coach Bruce Arians spoke about it recently.

“I have no idea where that came from,” Arians replied. “Somebody has to write a story every day about something. Tom and I have a great relationship. Even in retirement: ‘Where are you?’ “I’m in Italy.” ‘How are you?’ “I have the kids here. You know, just watch him. I can’t get him back on the golf course because he travels too much, so I can’t make enough money off him.
Arians then talked about the players recently added or re-signed this offseason, because of Brady.
“They know what Tom brings and we had a chance for another ring. And that’s all. That’s the bottom line,” Arians said. “Everything revolves around the ring again. Not reloading, not seeing who’s going to do this, who’s going to do that, how we’re going to integrate this guy. Everyone knows his role again right now. The smile really didn’t leave my face. I drink too much, but other than that it’s a constant party. It was huge for us to have Tom back.
Say it louder for the people in the back
You can add Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel to the list of people actually in the know dismissing the rumor.
Early Monday in owners’ meetings, newly hired Dolphins head coach McDaniel was asked about it, his response was “fake news.” Kudos to NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe for the report. The only question that remains is, will the Beantown hockey guy and the rest of the hacks continue to push this narrative?
