When the Buccaneers and Tom Brady won’t give anyone a concrete answer on a very strange absence, crazy rumors are bound to spread.

This was always bound to happen. An abnormal event like stepping away from the team for a few weeks is not something that anyone would expect from Tom Brady during his time with the Buccaneers.

Absences happen. Teams keeping tight lips as to why is a different story.

The Bucs gave a pretty standard statement when the initial move was made. This statement was unique, but it wasn’t where the story started to stink.

Todd Bowles has since clarified his comments, but the team being unable to say when Brady is coming back is where this starts to become weird.

Bowles has gone between not knowing when Brady is coming back and knowing when he is coming back but not saying. Interesting. It’s almost as if that is exactly what someone would say if they didn’t know exactly when Brady was returning but they wanted to seem like they did.

Either way, the way that the team has handled the situation has led to plenty of speculation, and one rumor stood alone among the rest.

What if Tom Brady was a contestant on The Masked Singer? The show is based on the idea of big-name celebrities coming in, and there aren’t many bigger names that Brady. Brady also wouldn’t be the first guy to wear a Buccaneers jersey that was also on the show either, although the circumstances were different for Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski.

People wondered if Brady signed a deal before he unretired. It would be insane to see someone like Brady step into a role like this during such an important time of the season, but the GOAT can be a little bit of a wildcard sometimes.

The facts did seem to line up, and people with some free time and the right connections were able to draw some lines where the team failed to provide information.

Unfortunately for the excitement, this rumor has been debunked by Benjamin Allbright.

This is good news for the Buccaneers. Brady stepping away for something so silly would look terrible.

Still, like Allbright said; it was fun while it lasted. Back to the drawing board I guess.

Trending. Next Buccaneers veteran cut that makes the most sense. light
