It looks like maybe the Buccaneers aren’t going to send Tom Brady to the 49ers like so many “plugged-in” people expected.

Buccaneers sources Twitter is wrong again? Shocker! Maybe everyone you see on Twitter doesn’t have a source like they want you to believe. You shouldn’t be surprised.

This hilarious group on social media has been wrong more than once on major events, but you have to hand it to them with their confidence.

The most recent in these false narratives is that Brady retired to use leverage to force a trade to the 49ers. Even some of the talking heads got in on the fun. Why this makes sense after trading up to secure Trey Lance is beyond us.

Regardless, the Buccaneers just killed this idea long before it even got close to off the ground.

When asked about helping Brady out if he returned from retirement and wanting a change of scenery, Bruce Arians was very clear that making this move would be a terrible decision for the Buccaneers.

Arians is absolutely right. Why would any team trade an MVP candidate to an in-conference rival?

Arians went as far to say that Brady’s price tag would be in the range of five first-round picks, and even that might not be enough.

Hint: Bruce Arians is a better source than Bucs Twitter. Sorry to burst any bubbles, but Tom Brady isn’t going anywhere, even if he wants to come back.

This is the right decision by a Bucs team that technically holds all of the cards. If Brady wants to play, it’ll be in Tampa or it won’t happen.

The idea of getting picks back for Brady is a fun idea, but no team in the league would be willing to give up that many picks to get Brady for one year.

But hey, we’d be more than happy to get a haul like that if some team was crazy enough to do it. That team just won’t be the 49ers for certain.
