Tom Brady has played for one NFL team his entire career, but with the constant rumors after an early playoff exit, it seems he might be playing for a second one.
The longtime New England Patriots quarterback is prepared to enter free agency this offseason. Brady is believed to be seriously considering playing elsewhere in 2020. Several teams, such as the Raiders, Chargers, and Titans have been rumored to be possible suitors over the past few weeks.
FOX Sports 1 host Colin Cowherd just randomly decided to put another team’s name in the ring that could be “right” for Brady – the Dallas Cowboys.
With the ongoing situation surrounding Dak Prescott’s contract, Cowherd believes the timing could be ideal for the Cowboys.
“If Dak (Prescott) continues to ask for top of the market money, just look at Brady in a Cowboy uniform. For an owner in Jerry Jones, oh my God. That is the number one merchandise seller in the league. That is A-Rod to the Yankees time ten, and LeBron to the Lakers times five. It looks right,” Cowherd said. “You don’t think looks matter? … Do you understand the merch this would create?
“… I’m telling you, optics matter… these companies all are spending hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars on optics. You’ve got a free agent legend. You’ve got a young quarterback worth about $28 that wants $38 and that’s not bending. You could do worse. It’s Jerry Jones — he has the best practice facility, he’s got the best stadium, he’s got the best brand, he sells the most merchandise. Look at that…”
Besides how good Brady might look in a Cowboys jersey, Cowherd also pointed to the team having a veteran head coach, a strong offensive line and weapons to throw to.
