Joe Montana is the poster child for it-doesn’t-end-well quarterback arguments, as the San Francisco 49ers legend spent his final two seasons as a Kansas City Chief.
Turns out, he wishes it had ended better.
In an NFL Network interview set to air on Super Bowl Sunday, Montana advises Tom Brady to stay put in New England, Christopher Mason of Masslive reports.
“It’s not easy to go to another team and get accepted, no matter how much success you’ve had and how many years you’ve played,” Montana told Mike Silver. “They still want to see you come in and be the same player and be that loyal to them as you were to the other team you just left. So, it’s not easy (for) guys looking at that change, especially at the quarterback position.
“Don’t (leave) — if you don’t have to. It’s a process to go through, and it takes time to get used to the team… I just can’t see how they would let him leave there, myself.”
Set to become a free agent for the first time in his 20-year career, Brady can test the market this March.
