Raiders, Dolphins, 49ers among potential adjustments in 2023

I was ready to group the Patriots with Tampa as complete non-starters for Brady’s final round. The return of Bill O’Brien as an offensive coordinator, however, ticks New England off the list. Brady knows him well from the five years BOB served at Foxborough, including the season (2011) he led the offense. It looks like they almost saw each other again in 2022, as the Bucs would have been hoping to hire O’Brien if Byron Leftwich landed the Jacksonville head coaching gig. It’s a selling point.

Rob Gronkowski doesn’t see a return to New England, however, with the giant’s tale Travis and Jason Kelceit is New heights podcast: “I would be 100% surprised if he returned to New England, without a doubt. It would be crazy, it would be a crazy story, but I really don’t see that happening. But you never know.”

I see another obstacle. Brady returning to the Patriots could be shaped like Bill Belichick waving the white flag. The quarterback left town and won a Super Bowl while his former coach fumbled through three disappointing campaigns. There’s something poetically perfect about one more race, but it would force everyone to put their egos aside. Unlikely.
