With every report, there seems to be a growing sentiment that Tom Brady has played his final game for the New England Patriots.
ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reported on Thursday that the soon-to-be free agent does not believe he will be playing in New England next season.
“Tom Brady is currently operating under the belief that he will enter free agency to play somewhere other than New England next season, a sentiment the quarterback has shared with others, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Darlington.
While Brady has his eyes very clearly on free agency, there is still a belief in his circles that the Patriots will have their opportunity to convince Brady to stay. But at this point, Brady is evaluating the NFL landscape with the intention of departing, sources said.”
According to Karen Guregian, the Patriots have still not yet reached out to Tom Brady‘s agent to schedule a meeting for contract negotiations.
The Athletic reporter Vic Tafur stated earlier that buzza round the combine is that the 42-year-old won’t be back in New England in 2020.
All signs seem to be pointing towards Brady having on a different jersey for the first time in his career.
Brady, who turns 43 in August, threw for 4,057 yards, 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions during the 2019 season, while adding 24 rush yards and 3 touchdowns.
