Chargers GM reacts to constant Tom Brady speculation
The Los Angeles Chargers are one of several teams expected to make a push for Tom Brady, and general manager Tom Telesco is getting plenty of questions about the star quarterback.
Brady is set to make a big decision in the offseason, as he enters free agency for the first time in his illustrious NFL career. While most believe that he’ll likely return to the New England Patriots, there has been other speculation about teams like the Las Vegas Raiders or Tennessee Titans being the front-runners to land him.
However, the Chargers are another team that figures to at least make a pitch to Brady, especially since Anthony Lynn is looking for a new starting quarterback due to Philip Rivers also hitting free agency.
Here’s what Telesco had to say about Brady potentially joining the Chargers, courtesy of Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times:
“I’ve been asked the question I can’t tell you how many different ways and different times,” Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said. “The way I’ve kind of answered it is this: We’re early in the process, way too early to eliminate anything right now.
“Like, we’re more in a wide-lens evaluation process to see what fits, what doesn’t fit. We’ll narrow things down later on. But we’ll see.”
Brady is undoubtedly the biggest domino in the free-agent market, and if he were to choose someone other than the Patriots, it would put New England in an interesting spot.
Of course, Los Angeles fans are likely among the many fanbases that would love to see Brady in their favorite team’s uniform next season.
