根据 波士顿环球报 在周五, Miami making Brady a high-level team executive would have been the quarterback’s way out of Tampa Bay. The Dolphins could have reportedly approached the Bucs about a trade for his contractual rights to come back and play quarterback during the 2022 季节.

Flores’ lawsuit threw a wrench into the plans, according to the Globe.

The Dolphins and team owner Stephen Ross were named in the former head coach’s racial discrimination lawsuit. In the suit, Flores said he was let go because he refused to “坦克” to get a high draft pick. He also claimed Ross told him that he would be compensated for each Dolphins loss and general manager Chris Grier said Ross wasmadover the team’s wins.

另外, the lawsuit claimed Ross pressured Flores to recruit aprominent quarterback” 为了 2020 season and that he was about to enter a meeting with such quarterback before bowing out at the last season. Flores claimed since then that the relationship with the organization went downhill.
