Former NFL quarterback Tom Brady has made it clear that he does not intend to come back and play professional football anytime soon. He was a part of many rumors during the offseason regarding a comeback into the league this season, but he shut them down pretty quickly. With that being said if he were to unretire this season, there is one team that fans are talking about that would make the most sense.
Am I the only one thinking the Vikings should call Tom Brady?

Tom Brady Rumors
That’s right, the Minnesota Vikings are the team everyone is saying Brady should join. This comes in light of the likely season-ending injury to their starter Kirk Cousins after he suffered what is believed to be a torn Achilles in the win against the Green Bay Packers. Many respected analysts are saying that this can happen and are calling upon the former star to join the team.

At the end of the day, these are just rumors and should not be taken too seriously, however, Brady has come out of retirement before so it’s certainly not something to put past him. If this were to happen, it would shock the entire NFL world as he made it clear that he does not intend to play again this season.
Vikings Quarterback Issues
Cousins will likely miss the remainder of the 2023 season causing devastation amongst NFL and Vikings fans. He has amounted to 2,331 passing yards and 18 touchdowns this season with just five interceptions. He was on pace to finish as the passing yards leader to end the year but has now come to an abrupt halt.
As we all know, Brady will go down as the greatest quarterback to ever play in the league. He leads the NFL in passing yards with 89,214, completions with 7,753, and passing touchdowns with 649. There is no one close to surpassing him in any of these categories, although some think Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will get there someday. We will see if Brady shocks the world and comes back to play in Minnesota, but this scenario is very unlikely.
