Bills’ Jordan Poyer wants Tom Brady to retire, be with his kids

Jordan Poyer has some advice for Tom Brady: retire and spend time with your kids.

During the latest episode of “The Jordan Poyer Podcast” with Volume Sports, the Bills security service said it was hard to watch the Buccaneers quarterback struggle in Monday’s season-ending wild card loss to the Cowboys — and urged urges Brady to call it a career.

“Tom, you know I love you, and I feel like I’ve been riding for you all year,” Poyer said. “In the beginning you can go back to my podcast, I said ‘you can’t count Tom’. … And so sure he made the playoffs. You did everything you could do in this league. I understand you like this game like Go be with your kids, man.

“I didn’t like watching that game. It was hard to watch. You’re down 27-0 at half-time (it was 18-0). He was beaten. You could tell he was beaten I still think he clearly knows everything about everything, the inside and outside of football But it takes 11 to play the game Go be with your kids Tom I appreciate everything you have in this league Done I got two picks from you, one for the crib Lost both games I’m 0-11 against you Yes please go Go be with your kids, Tom.

Brady and his ex-wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen have two children together, daughter Vivian, 10, and 13-year-old son Benjamin. The quarterback also has a 15-year-old son Jack with ex, actress Bridget Moynahan.

In October, Brady and Bundchen announced they had finalized their divorce after 13 years of marriage — that came after Page Six first reported back in September that they were dealing with martial issues.

All eyes are on Brady now. The 45-year-old attacker is transfer-free for the second time in his career. The quarterback – who has been associated with the Dolphins, Raiders, Titans and 49ers – could return to Tampa for the 24th NFL season, take his talents to another team or retire for good.

Following Monday’s game, Brady held a sombre press conference, thanking the media for their support in a challenging year and praising the Buccaneers organization, but did not comment on his plans for the future.

“I want to thank you for everything this year”, Brady told reporters. “I really appreciate all your effort. And I know it’s hard for you too. It’s hard for us players to get through, and you have a tough job. And I appreciate everything you guys do to cover us and everyone who watches and is a huge fan of the sport.

“We are very grateful for everyone’s support. You know, I love this organization. It’s a great place to be. Thanks everyone for welcoming us, all regulars. And just really thankful for the respect, and I hope I gave you the same back. So thank you very much.”

After leading the Buccaneers to a 2021 Super Bowl victory over the Chiefs, Brady briefly retired last February — only to announce his return to the NFL 40 days later.

It was one of Brady’s most challenging seasons on and off the field as he dealt with his divorce and an injury-plagued Buccaneers team, whose offense fell flat. Despite winning the NFC South for the second consecutive season, their 8–9 record marked Brady’s first career losing campaign.

As Tampa Bay waits for Brady’s next move — on Wednesday his former Patriots teammate Julian Edelman said if he returns for another season, “it won’t be in Tampa Bay” — it’s already making strides to overhaul its offense. The team fired offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich on Thursday.

When Brady decides to retire, a job at Fox Sports as a lead analyst awaits him. The Post’s Andrew Marchand reported last May that Brady signed a 10-year, $375 million deal with Fox Sports.

The Bills will face the Bengals in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game on Sunday.
