Willie McGinest says Tom Brady and Chargers are perfect match
There’s a chance that Tom Brady has already played in his final game with the New England Patriots and one of his former teammates has an idea of where he could land. While speaking to TMZ Sports, Willie McGinest said that he believes Brady and the Los Angeles Chargers are a perfect match.
“The business side of it, too (for the Chargers), you gotta sell jerseys, you gotta fill up seats, you got a new stadium you’re moving into,” McGinest recently told TMZ Sports. “I wouldn’t count anything out.”
For the first time in his illustrious career, Brady is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2020. The future Hall-of-Famer has already moved out of his home in Massachusetts and is expected to meet with teams in free agency.
Of course, there is still a chance that the Patriots keep Brady around until the end of his career. But there’s no denying that there are a ton of scenarios that could play out this offseason.
At 42-years-old, there aren’t many teams that are built to add Brady and compete for a Super Bowl. However, someone like Brady could choose to play for a team near his hometown in San Mateo, California.
The Chargers have to make a decision on whether or not to retain Philip Rivers this offseason. In the event that they let Rivers walk, Brady could replace him as a bridge quarterback until the Chargers find their long-term solution at the position.
It’s crazy to envision Brady playing for a team outside of New England. Unless the Patriots are willing to pay him accordingly, there’s a chance the ageless signal-caller is suiting up for a team in California.
