The rumors about the 49ers having interest in signing Tom Brady did make sense, on paper, at first.
Brady grew up a 49ers fan in the Bay Area, and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo put together one of the worst fourth-quarter performances we’ve ever seen in a Super Bowl — along with Jared Goff the year beforehand.
But the thing is that those rumors were false, and were essentially planted by Brady’s camp.
Albert Breer of The MMQB had an interesting report on Monday, essentially stating that the 49ers’ “interest” in Brady was leaked by TB12’s camp.
It now makes sense that the 49ers were said to have backed out so quickly, when they were never really in on Brady in the first place.
