There’s been a lot of speculation regarding which team decided to pass on signing Tom Brady last year in favor of sticking with their current quarterback.

And whenever you’re talking about bad quarterbacks, the Bears are obviously going to come up in the conversation. Many, including Colin Cowherd, speculated about whether or not Brady was talking about Mitchell Trubisky, whose tumultuous career in Chicago came to an end after last season.

Brady’s episode of “The Shop: Uninterrupted” aired last week, as did his full comments about the team that passed him over. While Brady never revealed who that team or that other quarterback was, it sounds like we can rule out one team.

According to Mike Florio, the Bears and Trubisky weren’t who Brady was talking about.

Which makes sense. Not even Bears general manager Ryan Pace would be ignorant enough to pass on Brady for Trubisky.

While many wanted to link Trubisky and the Bears to Brady’s comment, it never quite added up. Chicago was reportedly one of Brady’s final contenders, and they even made him an offer, according to Ian Rapoport. But Brady ultimately decided against playing in the cold weather and chose the warmer climate of Tampa.

So who was Brady referencing? Perhaps his former teammate Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco? Derek Carr in Las Vegas? We might not ever know. But it makes sense that it wasn’t the Bears.
