Colin Cowherd thinks there is an 80 percent chance Tom Brady returns to New England
Days ago, sports hot-take analyst Colin Cowherd claimed the New England Patriots dynasty was after. Tom Brady could be leaving, the Tennessee Titans beat them in Foxboro in the playoffs and the Patriots’ lack of weapons is alarming. Now, Cowherd thinks that Brady will be back.
On his show “The Herd,” Cowherd stated that there is an 80 percent chance that Brady will be back in New England in 2020. For the first time in his career, Brady will be an unrestricted free agent in March.
“This is what I know about Brady,” Cowherd said. “Brady loves repetition. He loves habit. He loves process. He loves repetition. That’s the only thing we have in common, and let me tell you: I’ve moved cross country three times, it disrupts that.”
With Brady slated to become a free agent, there has been much speculation that the 42-year-old quarterback will be moving from New England to a different team needing a quarterback, whether it be for competitive or financial reasons. Cowherd doesn’t see it happening, as he states it disrupts that.
Cowherd appears to be on the right path. Days after losing to the Titans, Tom Brady posted on Instagram. Though he didn’t explicitly state that he will be back in New England, he certainly alluded to it in his lengthy letter to his fanbase.

I just wanted to say to all of our fans, THANK YOU! After a few days of reflection, I am so grateful and humbled by the unconditional support you have shown me the past two decades. Running out of that tunnel every week is a feeling that is hard to explain. I wish every season ended in a win, but that’s not the nature of sports (or life). Nobody plays to lose. But the reward for working hard is just that, the work!! I have been blessed to find a career I love, teammates who go to battle with me, an organization that believes in me, and fans who have been behind us every step of the way. Every one of us that works at Gillette Stadium strived to do their best, spent themselves at a worthy cause, and prepared to fail while daring greatly (h/t Teddy Roosevelt). And for that, we’ve been rewarded with something that the scoreboard won’t show – the satisfaction of knowing we gave everything to each other in pursuit of a common goal. That is what TEAM is all about. In both life and football, failure is inevitable. You dont always win. You can, however, learn from that failure, pick yourself up with great enthusiasm, and place yourself in the arena again. And that’s right where you will find me. Because I know I still have more to prove.
The likeliest scenario with Tom Brady is that he returns to the Patriots. He does not want to retire, as he’s noted publicly in multiple instances. Brady going anywhere else would shake the NFL landscape.
