Here We Go Again: Tom Brady Says He’d Return To Play & Names 2 Teams He’d Go To

Good morning, Sports fans!  Davey Mac here with the final Sports Report of the week before we get to an action-packed weekend!  We've got football, basketball, and hockey scores and matchups...O.J. Simpson dies...and The Masters is here!  But first...we start with a headline-grabbing story from the NFL... ...NBC is reporting that legendary NFL quarterback Tom Brady just said in an interview that he would be open to returning to the National Football League under the right circumstances.  While he has no interest in returning in a full-time capacity...Brady says if a starting quarterback went down with an injury, he wouldn't be opposed to filling in.  Brady last played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where he won a Super Bowl.
