The clock continues to countdown on the New England Patriots to work out a new deal with Tom Brady before the six-time Super Bowl champion hits free agency. If new reports suggests anything, it seems like both sides aren’t really making any new progress.
There has been “no movement” in contract negotiations between Brady and the Patriots, ESPN’s Mike Reiss reported on Sunday.
It was just last offseason where Brady negotiated a two-year extension with the Patriots that increased his pay during the 2019 season. However, the language in the contract officially voids any chance of the team applying the franchise or transition tag to Brady, removing the final impediment between the quarterback and the open market.
It is starting to become clear that Brady will indeed head into free agency and teams like the Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders are just suitors that seem willing to take him on.
