A preview of Tom Brady's appearance on HBO's The Shop went viral after he trashed a team for passing on him in free agency.  There has been a ton of speculation about which team he was talking about.

ESPN analyst Jeff Darlington says he knows which team Brady was talking about.  He says the seven time Super Bowl champ was talking about the Saints.

From BroBible:

“I’m gonna say it as clear as day: it’s the New Orleans Saints,” Darlington said. “Regret might be a strong word because ultimately Drew Brees decided to delay his broadcasting career and come back for one more season. The Saints did the right thing by bringing Brees back. But I think that people still underestimate how close Tom Brady was to signing with the New Orleans Saints up until he ultimately decided on the Bucs. I know that that’s gonna be a statement people try to question. It’s the truth.”

The Saints would make a lot of sense.  Sticking with Drew Brees was the wrong move.

Brady won a Super Bowl with the Bucs and a very sad performance by Brees got the Saints bounced in the playoffs again.
