Did Tom Brady retire due to a soured relationship with Bruce Arians?

Tom Brady’s two year stint in Tampa Bay was one of the more successful in recent history. He and Bruce Arians won a lot of games in only two season working together. Brady was still playing at an exceptionally high level in his 21st NFL season. Of course as we all know now, he couldn’t lead the Bucs to their second consecutive Super Bowl.

Tom truly retired at the top of his game. Now a report has surfaced pointing to a broken relationship with Bruce Arians.

Brady and Bucs Offensive Coordinator Bryon Leftwich had some issues with Arians. Specifically when Arians was recovering from an Achilles tear, Brady and Leftwich would work on the game plan all week.

Arians would then take a red pen to all their work, and do things his way.

“Apparently, while Arians was rehabbing the achilles in the early mornings, offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and Brady would work on the week’s game plan. Arians would later come in and take the red pen to work they’d done. The QB and OC felt undermined, there was tension.”
