The Indianapolis Colts were named the ideal destination for Tom Brady if he plans to come out of retirement.
Tom Brady recently retired from the NFL after 22 seasons in the league. When he officially announced the decision, majority praised his career, some questioned if he was done for good, and the Indianapolis Colts celebrated.
Brady and the Colts have had a bitter rivalry dating back to the early 2000s. Brady, doing his time with the New England Patriots, typically got the best of Indianapolis and ended Indy’s Super Bowl hopes numerous times.
That’s why it was relief amongst Indy fans when Brady finally decided to walk away. However, Brady is already being linked back to Indianapolis. Not as a rival, but as a possible acquisition.
Former quarterback and current ESPN analyst, Robert Griffin III, believes the Colts are the perfect destination for Brady if he comes out of retirement.
RG3 makes the case for Tom Brady to join Colts
As stated earlier, many wondered if Brady was retiring for good, and despite Brady’s lengthy retirement statement, a lot of people still haven’t ruled out Brady playing next season.
There have been reports that Brady had frustrations during his time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and that could have led to his retirement. So if he does return, the belief is that it’ll be a different team.
That’s why Robert Griffin III makes the case for Brady joining the Colts. He argues that Indy’s roster is ready to compete and Lucas Oil Stadium offers perfect conditions for home games.
While that sounds good in theory, it’s incredibly hard to fathom a world where Tom Brady is wearing a Colts uniform. Additionally, a lot would have to happen for that to take place.
For starters, Brady has an additional year on his contract, so the Buccaneers and Indy would have to agree on a worthy trade. But bigger than that, two sides that have been bitter rivals, with controversy, would have to put aside their history.
Brady as quarterback of the Colts would create great Super Bowl odds but there are things far more likely than Tom Brady taking snaps for Indianapolis.
