Jordan Poyer has 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 safety said it was hard to watch the Buccaneers quarterback struggle in Monday’s season-ending loss to the Cowboys — and urged 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. “At first you can go back to my podcast, I said ‘you can’t count Tom. … And sure enough, he made the playoffs. You did everything you could have done in this league. I understand you like this game. Go be with your kids, man.
“I didn’t enjoy watching this game. It was hard to watch. You are down 27-0 at halftime (it was 18-0). He was defeated. You could see he was defeated. I still think he obviously knows everything about everything, inside and outside of football. But it takes 11 to play the game. Go be with your kids, Tom. I appreciate everything you have done in this league. I have two choices on you, one for the crib. Lost both games. I’m 0-11 against you. Yes, please go ahead. Go be with your kids, Tom.
Brady and his ex-wife, model Gisele Bundchen, have two children together, daughter Vivian, 10, and son Benjamin, 13. The quarterback also has a 15-year-old son, Jack, with his ex, actress Bridget Moynahan.
In October, Brady and Bundchen announced they had finalized their divorce after 13 years of marriage — after Page Six was first to report in September that they were navigating martial issues.
All eyes are on Brady now. The 45-year-old is a free agent for the second time in his career. The quarterback — who has been linked to the Dolphins, Raiders, Titans and 49ers — could return to Tampa for a 24th NFL season, bring his talents to another team, or retire permanently.
After Monday’s game, Brady held a somber press conference, in which he thanked the media for their support during a difficult year and praised the Buccaneers organization – but made no allusion to his future plans.
“I just want to say thank you guys for everything this year,” Brady told reporters. “I really appreciate all your efforts. And I know it’s hard for you too. It’s hard for us players to get through this, and you have a tough job. And I appreciate everything. what you do to cover us and everyone who watches and is a big fan of the sport.
“We are very grateful for everyone’s support. You know, I love this organization. It’s a great place. Thank you all for welcoming me, to all of you regulars. And just so grateful for the respect, and I hope I returned the same to you guys. So thank you very much.”
After leading the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory over the Chiefs in 2021, Brady briefly retired last February – only to announce his return to the NFL 40 days later.
It was one of Brady’s toughest seasons on and off the court as he dealt with his divorce and an injury-riddled Buccaneers team whose offense fell flat. Although they won the NFC South for the second straight season, their 8-9 record marked Brady’s first losing campaign of his career.
As Tampa Bay awaits 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” — he is already taking steps to revise his offensive. The team fired offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich on Thursday.
When Brady decides to retire, he will have a job waiting for him with Fox Sports as a senior analyst. The Post’s Andrew Marchand reported last May that Brady signed a 10-year, $375 million contract with Fox Sports.
The Bills will face the Bengals in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game on Sunday.
