Even after the Patriots lost to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Wild Card round of the playoffs, fans in New England were confident that Brady would be back in 2020. Now, it’s starting to become a reality that he could end his career with another franchise.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Brady’s agent, Don Yee, was going to meet with the Patriots at the NFL Combine. While Yee speaks to the team, it is interesting that New England hasn’t spoken to Brady much about his future with the organization.
Besides the Patriots, there are going to be a handful of teams trying to convince Brady to play for them in 2020. Provided that, New England should be doing everything in their power to keep him for the rest of his career.
For the Patriots to retain Brady, they would need to drastically improve the offense around him. In addition, they would need to give him a contract that rivals the offers he’ll receive from other teams.
Throughout his career, Brady has taken somewhat of a discount to remain with the Patriots. Seeing that he’s no longer willing to do that, New England could have a tougher time persuading him to stay. At the least, the Patriots need to begin communicating with Brady before it’s too late.
