Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and defensive back Logan Ryan are on their second stint as teammates (well, at least for now with free agency approaching), but back in the 2019 playoffs, they were foes.
Brady’s New England Patriots hosted Ryan’s Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs during the 2019 campaign in a game that saw Brady throw his last pass as a Patriot to Ryan, who picked it off to seal the upset victory, sending Tennessee to the Divisional Round.
Wisely, Ryan has held on to the ball, which figures to be worth some money down the road.
And, prior to the season-ending defeat at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys last week, the veteran defensive back had Brady sign the ball, which the future Hall of Famer wasn’t thrilled about.
Afterwards, Brady took to Twitter with a funny reaction, and he ultimately signed the ball, complete with the message “last pass as a Patriot.”
You know Ryan, who joined the Bucs in free agency last offseason, was waiting all year to do that.
Both Ryan and Brady will be free agents this offseason, assuming they don’t re-sign with the Bucs beforehand. There has been some speculation that Brady could come to Nashville, but it is just that, speculation.
