Patriots QB Tom Brady may not take free agency tour, could let teams come to him
The New England Patriots will be anxiously waiting for a decision from Tom Brady when free agency begins, but he’s taking an unusual approach in free agency. Instead of visiting teams, Brady may not take a free agency tour and could let teams come to him.
Around the time of the NFL Combine, teams begin to speak to players about free agency. Typically, a player will compile a list of interested teams and will schedule a meeting to talk to each specific team.
However, Brady may decide to meet teams at one location of his choosing. Of course, that could make the process of Brady signing with a team go along more smoothly. In addition, the location he chooses could be a clue to where he is leaning toward signing.
Without a doubt, the Patriots would like to re-sign Brady and have him finish his career in Foxborough. But depending on how Brady meets with teams, it could be tougher for New England to convince him to stay.
Even though he turns 43-years-old in 2020, there are going to be a handful of teams clamoring to sign Brady. Recently, there was a report that the Las Vegas Raiders are prepared to offer him a two-year, $60 million deal once free agency gets underway.
This entire situation between Brady and the Patriots has been far from normal. The future Hall of Famer has spent 20 seasons with the Patriots, but he’s going to consider all of his options before deciding on where he’s going to suit up next season. Nevertheless, Brady’s free agency decision is shaping up to be quite a spectacle.
