Maybe Miami isn't a possible destination for Tom Brady after all

This has been the week of Tom Brady and debating possible destinations for the 42-year-old quarterback as he gets set to be a free agent for the first time in his career.

Listen to your team news NOW.

One of the teams to get some extra buzz this week was the Dolphins.

There are some things that make a lot of sense -- Brady having ties to owner Stephen Ross (both Michigan grads), Brady knowing coach Brian Flores from his time in New England, and Miami having a ton of money to spend.

But, when speaking at an event Friday afternoon, Ross seemed to downplay it being a possibility.

“We’re a team that is now rebuilding and I don’t know why he’d really want to come to the Dolphins. He’s been one of the fiercest competitors there is and we’re at the stage with the Dolphins trying to really build a team for the future,” he said.

The Dolphins owner also added Miami and other teams are not allowed to speak to Brady until the legal tampering period begins on March 16.

Teams who seem most in play for Brady besides the Patriots at the moment are the Chargers and Raiders.
