Tom Brady had a strong message (or warning) for the team that chose to pass on him on the latest episode of LeBron James’ ‘The Shop.’
In the teaser for this episode of ‘The Shop’, Brady talked about how there was one team in the 2020 NFL free agency period that pulled out of the Brady sweepstakes after wanting him initially. His surprise to the situation has gone viral with his famous one-liner “You’re going with that motherfu**ker” becoming the talk of the week.
Which team was Brady talking about? Fans speculated it was one of the San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears, or the Las Vegas Raiders. While Brady never revealed the identity of the team, to our disappoint, he did have a strong message for that team. Here’s the clip of him calling out the team:

It only gets worse later on for that team.
Tom Brady Seems Intent On Destroying The NFL Team That Chose Not To Sign Him
If you disrespect the NFL’s greatest quarterback of all time, well, you better pray you never have to play him. After being taken in the sixth round of the NFL draft with the 199th pick, Brady knows all about playing with a chip on his shoulder.
This situation is no different. Brady talked about how he knows what it’s like to be passed up and taken for granted. For that exact reason, he seems hell-bent on coming after the team that chose to go away from him:
“Looking back, I’m thinking ‘There’s no fuc-ing way I would’ve gone to that team. They said they didn’t want me! I know what that means! I know what that feels like! And I’m going to f— you up because of that.”pic.twitter.com/DZ32TnRdI5

Well, you got what you asked for. You chose not to sign the NFL’s greatest quarterback, and now you’re going to pay for it. If you think that Brady has put all this behind him, you’re dead wrong. Brady never forgets. If you cross him, you’re going to pay the price.
Just look at the ferocity with which he speaks with in that clip. That isn’t a joke. That’s a warning. It’s the exact kind of warning he sent to the league when he was passed up in the draft, only to kickstart a dynasty a year later. Teams have made the same mistake before, why would you do it again?
At this point, you have to know who you are, and who Brady’s talking about. If you have the Buccaneers on your schedule this upcoming season, drop everything and plan for that game.
Forget the rest of the season, forget training camp, forget it all. Your one focus should be on how you’re going to beat Brady. Tom Brady has marked you as a target, and if he gets the chance, he will take you down.
