Just hours after the end of Super Bowl LIV, the focus has already shifted back to the many rumors regarding Tom Brady and what might happen in free agency.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Los Angeles Chargers have “emerged as a legitimate option” for Brady should he leave the New England Patriots this offseason.
The Chargers are reportedly moving on from Philip Rivers and they clearly do not have a viable QB on the roster.
Brady, who spent the previous 20 seasons with the Patriots, renegotiated his contract to allow him to reach free agency this upcoming March, so New England is not able to apply the franchise or transition tag to the veteran quarterback.
If Brady were to head West, he would paired with the likes of Pro Bowl wideout Keenan Allen and deep threat Mike Williams. Not to mention, the franchise would be playing in a brand new stadium.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Las Vegas Raiders also plan to pursue the 42-year old.
Brady currently ranks second all-time in passing yards (74,571) and touchdown throws (541).
