Tom Brady's Assistant Said To Be Looking For Work, Fueling Retirement Talk

Tom Brady’s longtime assistant Ben Rawitz has been talking to other top quarterbacks about work, fueling his retirement talks.

Page Six reports that Rawitz has reached out to a list of quarterbacks — including the Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen, Cincinnati Bengals’ Joe Burrow, Arizona Cardinals’ Kyler Murray and New England Patriots’ Mac Jones — for management opportunities.

Even before the Buccaneers’ 30-27 loss to the Rams in the NFC Divisional Round, the 44-year-old said after the game that he would take time to evaluate his next move, as OutKick's Nick Geddes reported.

“I said this a few years ago, it’s what relationships are all about,” Brady said, via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. “It’s not always what I want. It’s what we want as a family. And I’m gonna spend a lot of time with them and figure out in the future what’s next.

“It pains to see me get hit out there,” Brady said. “And she deserves what she needs from me as a husband and my kids deserve what they need from me as a dad.”

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians and other members of the team have indicated they have no intention of trying to force or rush Brady into a decision, though, so it seems it's a matter of waiting for him to decide.
