“Normally I would feel like that [Aaron] Rodgers will be that guy,” Chris said on the October 18 episode of NBC’s Pro Football Talk Live when asked if he thinks the veteran midfielder Aaron Rodgers or Tom might be leaving mid-season. “But because of this year and some off-field content involving Brady’s family and personal belongings, this is a year I feel like maybe it’s Brady.”
Chris continued: “I think Rodgers is usually more of a rebel and is like ‘twist this, I’m out of here.’ ‘ “But it’s been a weird year when we see Brady doing weird crap and having personal issues.”
The odd year included the fact that Tom missed 11 days of Tampa Bay’s training camp in the summer for “personal reasons”.
