Amid an eventful offseason for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, one persistent conspiracy theory involved a rumored degradation of the relationship between quarterback Tom Brady and then-head coach Bruce Arians.

Arians shot down the rumors at every turn, both before his retirement from coaching and after. Now, Brady is doing the same.

Speaking to the media Thursday following the final practice of the team’s mandatory minicamp, the GOAT made it clear that his relationship with Arians wasn’t an issue at all, and reiterated that Arians’ presence was a driving factor in his decision to sign with the Bucs in free agency back in 2020 (via Rick Stroud, Tampa Bay Times):

There are sure to be some who still won’t believe anything Brady or Arians says on the matter, but both parties remain adamant that there was no negative friction between them.
