This past Monday night during ESPN’s pregame show, NFL Insider Adam Schefter turned some heads when he spoke on the possibility of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady playing elsewhere in 2020, stating that all signs are pointing to 2019 being his final year with the franchise.
Schefter doubled-down on those comments during ESPN’s morning show “Get Up!” on Thursday, saying that he believes Brady staying in New England may be the least likely outcome for the QB next year.
“These are his acts that he’s put into motion,” Schefter said. “And I don’t think that he knows how it’s going to play out after this year. But again, just look at the basic facts. That’s what I said. If he’s selling his house, his trainer is selling his house, and he’s voiding his contract, doesn’t that tell you something?”
“I would just say there are three options: He’s either staying in New England, he’s retiring, or he’s going to play somewhere else. I would think of those three, that staying in New England, to me, would seem like the least likely option of the three. But we’ll see.”
“I think he could go any which way,” Schefter added on after drawing a reaction from his colleagues on the “Get Up!” panel. “I think all three are in play. But I think it’d be more likely that he’ll retire or perhaps even move on than stay in New England. We’ll see.”
Just imagining Brady in another team’s jersey has to make Patriots fan lose their minds. This won’t go over well with the fan base if the allow one of the greatest QB’s in history to end his career elsewhere.
