There have been a few reports in recent days that indicate Tom Brady could be playing for a team not named the New England Patriots in 2020. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Brady is still in New England’s plans moving forward.

Ever since the end of the 2019 season, the Patriots have made it known that they want Brady back next season. However, the 42-year-old quarterback wants to consider all of his options before making an official decision.

While other teams prepare to manufacture offers for Brady, the Patriots are patiently waiting to see what happens with the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Of course, if the new CBA is voted in favor for, contract stipulations could be a bit different.

For 20 seasons in the NFL, Brady has been in New England. But for the first time in his career, there’s a legitimate chance that he finishes his career elsewhere.

This season, Brady finished 4,057 yards, 24 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. In addition, he completed only 60.8 percent of his passing attempts — the lowest mark of his career since 2015.

On Thursday, Jeff Darlington of ESPN doubled-down and said that he would be ‘stunned’ if Brady returned to Foxborough in 2020. Besides the Patriots, teams like the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers have been listed as possible suitors.

Contrary to some reports, New England is focused on keeping Brady for the remainder of his career. Until free agency, there is going to be a lot of rumors swirling around the veteran signal-caller. Regardless of what Brady does, the Patriots are prepared to make an attempt to keep him beyond 2020.
