Tom Brady finally addresses Dolphins rum

Welcome to the Friday edition of the Pick Six newsletter!The month of June is usually a slow time in the , but has single-handedly changed that this year. We're only 10 days into the month and he's already: Won with , modeled , dyed and given his first pre s conference of the offseason.I have no idea what Brady has in store for the rest of the month, but I won't be surprised if he buys a castle, adopts a kangaroo or goes to space. I mean, at this point, literally anything is on the table.Speaking of Brady, we'll be taking a close look at what he had to say during his Denny Mclain Jersey first pre s conference of the offseason on Thursday. We'll also be going over what had to say during his first meeting of the offseason with the media.As always, here's your weekly reminder to tell all your friends to sign up for the newsletter. All you have to do is . Let's get to the rundown. 1. Today's show: What's the ' Super Bowl window and is their roster-building plan sustainable?Even though we're inching toward the slow part of the NFL offseason, things definitely haven't been slow this week. From extension to Brady's first pre s conference in nearly five months, there's been a lot of news. To break it all down, I joined Will Brinson and Tyler Sullivan for Friday's episode of the Pick Six podcast.During the episode, we spent a lot of time talking about the Rams and their team-building philosophy of "trade away all your draft picks for star players." It's definitely an interesting strategy, but it's also risky, which is probably why we Tyson Ross Jersey haven't seen other attempt to emulate them.Basically, Les Snead has decided that he's going to run the Rams like an franchise with a thought proce s of "we're going to get some superstars in here and then we're going to fill in the gaps with players who cost $2 million per year and then we're going to be competitive." Four of those superstars -- , , and Cooper Kupp -- are going to eat up nearly 40% of the Rams' cap space in 2022. Most teams try to avoid letting just four players eat up that much space, but the Rams don't care because their philosophy just won them a Super Bowl.If you're wondering how they can afford to keep handing out these big contracts, it's because Snead has no problem kicking the can down the road. The once mastered this strategy with Drew Brees' contract, but it blew up in their face when the salary cap went down in 2020.The good news for Snead is that he doesn't have to worry about this because the salary cap is per year over the life of the new TV deal. Since the Rams have their core players under contract now, it will be easy for them to figure out how much salary cap space they'll have going forward, which is why it feels like they have a strong Super Bowl window for at least the next two to three years. On the other hand, a team like the has no idea what their cap situation will look like over the next few years because they don't know what kind of cap hit they're going to take each season from a potential new contract for . If you want to listen to today's episode, where he also cover Brady's first pre s conference in five months, then . You . 2. Tom Brady holds first pre s conference since announcing his return: Here's what he had to sayIt's been nearly three months since Brady announced that he Sparky Anderson Jersey was returning to football, and somehow, he managed to go that entire three-month period without holding a pre s conference. Fortunately for us, that drought ended on Thursday when Brady finally met with the media. During the pre ser, he spent a good chunk of time answering questions about everything that came up this offseason from his relationship with Bruce Arians to whether he flirted with the .Here's :Brady doesn't deny flirting with the Dolphins. Brady was asked if he talked with the Dolphins this off-season about po sibly joining the team in any capacity and he definitely didn't deny it. The 44-year-old could have simply said 'no, I didn't talk to them,' but instead, he said this, "I've had a lot of conversations with a lot of people, as I've had for the past three or four years in my career, about different opportunities when I'm done playing football. I kind of made a decision of what I'd like to do. I'll get to be in the game of football. ... The most important thing is where I'm at now and what I hope to do for this team. That's been my commitment, to this team and this organization." That sounds like a guy who definitely talked to the Dolphins.What's the state of Brady's relationship with Bruce Arians?After Arians surprisingly retired on March 30, there was some speculation that he only stepped down because he wasn't getting along with Brady. However, the QB denies that claim. "He and I have a great relationship," Brady said of Arians, . "Part of the reason I chose here was because of Bruce. I mean, he and I have been -- incredible communication -- I have great respect for him. He knows how I feel about him -- that's the most important thing. And I know how he feels about me."Brady also got asked about Gronk. One big Victor Martinez Jersey unknown this offseason is whether is going to return. Brady on the subject, and unfortunately, he does not. "I think it's just, obviously, totally up to him. We'd all love to play with him, but he's got to make the best decision for himself, and he knows that," Brady said. "Anybody that cares about him knows that he is doing what's right for him, which is trying to figure it out. We don't have training camp for about six weeks, so whatever he has to do to figure it out. I think we will be Joe Jimenez Jersey hopeful if he does. And if he doesn't, we've still got to go out there and figure out what to do."Of all the subjects he touched on, I find the Dolphins thing especially interesting because it's pretty clear that he had talks with them. That's important to remember because Brady is going to be a free agent after the 2022 season, which means he'll be free to sign with anyone. If he was talking to Miami this year, it wouldn't be surprising at all to see him having a conversation with them in 2023. 3. Davante Adams explains why he ditched Aaron Rodgers for Brady wasn't the only star NFL player to hold his first pre s conference of the offseason on Thursday, so did Adams, and like Brady, the receiver had a lot of interesting things to say.Let's take a look at what was on Adams' mind:Uncertainty about Aaron Rodgers' future played a part in the decision to ask for a trade. Adams said he talked a lot with Rodgers this offseason, "We talked throughout the whole proce s and he was aware of where I stood, and I was aware of where he stood," Adams said. "We had talks just like what he said the other day. He mentioned we had talks about his future and what he thinks his duration in Green Bay or just football in general would look like, and that played into my decision, as well.Adams seems to think that Rodgers only has one or tw
