Colin Cowherd says the Colts make ‘a lot of sense’ for Tom Brady
“Brady now is going to lose his offensive coordinator [Josh McDaniels],” Cowherd said on The Herd. “He already lost Gronk, New England hasn’t addressed that, he’s struggling with young receivers… Think of what they [Indianapolis Colts] have for Tom Brady. When Peyton Manning was a free agent and he was old, and he’d been banged up, where did he go? To a team that had weapons, an offensive line and a structure he trusted.”
Brady will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and it is unclear whether he will return to New England. Cowherd also mentioned that Brady and his trainer have put their Boston homes up for sale, and him and Patriots head coach Bill Belichick are at odds as the years go on.
Colts general manager Chris Ballard recently said that the jury is still out on quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who threw for 2,942 yards, 18 touchdowns, and six interceptions in 15 games in his first year as the team’s starter.
On the flip side, it was an other good season for Brady, 42, who threw for 4,057 yards, 24 touchdowns, and eight interceptions in year 20.
Brady wishes to play until he is 45, which would require three more seasons of football. There is much speculation on who is to go first, Brady or Belichick.
New England had the opportunity to move on from Brady multiple times, with backup quarterbacks Brissett and Jimmy Garoppolo proving to be serviceable in the NFL.
With Brady a free agent, his decision could change the entire NFL.
