SUPERMODEL Gisele Bündchen has sent NFL fans into a frenzy about her husband Tom Brady’s future.
Tom left the New England Patriots after 20 seasons and shocked the world when he signed on to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Florida.
Clearly struggling to adjust to the consistently warm climate of Tampa, Tom took to Twitter to reminisce over Boston’s picturesque fall.
He innocently wrote: “Missing the fall this year.”
But his wife chose chaos and retweeted him writing: “Time for a trade?” indicating the star could return to the Patriots.
“Did I miss something?” Tom replied to his wife.
But that reply did not stop sending fans into a frenzy telling her to stop ‘trolling’ and to not ‘mess with’ them.
One Tampa fan pleaded: “Please no she just kidding they love it here . Can go on vacation later after super bowl win.”
Another person wrote: “Wow Gisele trolling.”
And a third commented: “Explain please.”
Tom helped Tampa win its second Super Bowl this year during his first season at the team.
Considered the greatest quarterback in NFL history, Brady was selected 199th overall by the Patriots in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft.
He spent 20 seasons with the Patriots – where he was the focal point of the franchise’s dynasty from 2001 to 2019.
SIX SUPER BOWL WINS
In 20 seasons, Brady led New England to 17 division titles, 13 AFC Championship Games, nine Super Bowl appearances and six Super Bowl titles, all NFL records for a player and franchise.
However, before the 2020-2021 season, Brady shocked the NFL world when he signed with the Buccaneers.
In 2019, Brady restructured his contract to allow him to enter the free agency the following year.
The contract specified that the Patriots could not franchise or transition tag the veteran player, allowing him the freedom to move.
However, owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick were reluctant and preferred to offer the aging player a short-term deal.
According to NBC Sports Boston, “a tangible effort by the Patriots to keep Tom Brady in New England never happened. No negotiation.
“Just the intimation that it was on Brady to say what he wanted. For Brady, that stance spoke volumes.”
Brady is said to have felt unwanted by the side, which solidified his decision to leave the team.
After announcing his decision to sign with Tampa Bay, Brady explained why he opted for the Bucs in his welcome press conference, describing the franchise as an “intriguing” prospect.
“There were a lot of things that really were intriguing to me about the organization – the players, and the coaches, and the willingness of everyone to try to accomplish the goal of what playing football is, which is to win,” Brady said.
According to Sports Illustrated, the Los Angeles Chargers was another option for Brady, but the father of three opted for Tampa Bay due to “family considerations.”
In March, Brady signed a contract extension with the Bucs to stay with the team for another two years.
Brady signed another two-year deal with the Bucs with $50million.
For Brady, $41million is due in 2021, with the remaining $8.9million due in 2022.
Brady, who turned 44 in August, has long discussed playing beyond age 45.
He has been married to Giselle – who is one of the world’s highest paid models – since 2009.
