“I think he’s going to have a great year”

After 18 seasons and a total of 252 games with the Green Bay Packers, it is only a few days before Aaron Rodgers makes his first appearance with the New York Jets. It will be a new experience for Jets fans, for Packers fans (who will see Jordan Love on QB), but especially for Rodgers.

Not many players know what Rodgers is currently going through and jumping to a new team after nearly twenty years with your old team. But there’s someone who does know what he’s going through: Tom Brady.

Brady is now retired, but he jumped to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 after twenty years with the New England Patriots. On “Let’s Go,” the podcast Brady does with Jim Gray, he discussed what Rodgers may have been through and how he thinks Rodgers will feel going into a new season with a new team.

“Well, there’s just a different energy to it. It’s new. It’s a fresh start to try and pick up where you’ve been, to bring all the good and then not bring the hard lessons, you know? Because sometimes the hard lessons stay forever unless you work through them, you know?So it’s like you go through a lot of years in one place and there’s a lot of, I would say, mental scar tissue, from losses or relationships or certain experiences. Oh , this man had once said this, or that teammate, or this coach, or that general manager.

“Now you go to a new place and you have none of that. So now you can hopefully just do your best knowing that you probably didn’t do everything exactly where you were, but you did your best. And now you get to going to a new place with a different kind of emotional energy. And I’m excited for him. He’s going to be strengthened. Looks like he’s having a good time until this year. I know he’s been engaged in the off-season, that is always great, and really tries to connect with his teammates. So I’m excited to see what he does. They have a really good team. They have a really good offense. And you know Aaron has been, when he was good receivers. , man, it’s pretty dangerous. … I think he’s going to have a great year.”

Is there any chance Brady will return to the NFL?

The only question Brady will be asked for years to come is this: “Is there any chance you’ll ever return to the NFL?” No matter what answer he gives, he will continue to be asked that question until he is physically unable to play football.

But if anyone fears the return of the GOAT, don’t worry. As Brady said on the podcast: he is very happy to be retired.

“There’s a lot of blood, sweat and tears and it’s out there in the hundred-degree heat in Miami, and it’s hard in Tampa when you’re wearing helmets and shoulder pads. And I’m very excited to never put on a helmet again. I’ve done enough years of that and put that six-pound helmet on your head in 102-degree heat, trust me, I’ll never miss that.’
