For the first time in his storied career, Tom Brady will become a free agent. During a recent interview, Brady stated he’s opened to signing elsewhere. Despite winning six championships with the Patriots, would Tom Brady leave the only organization he’s played for? If he were to leave, where are some potential landing spots for the future Hall-Of-Famer?
New England Patriots
Many people think Tom Brady could return to the only team he’s played for. I’m sure that Brady will love being courted in free agency. Brady could be waiting to see if New England make any moves themselves. We all know that the Patriots didn’t have any threats at receiver besides Julian Edelman. After releasing Josh Gordon and Antonio Brown, plus Gronk retiring New England struggled. Brady could take his time in free agency and the Patriots could be aggressive in free agency. Could Brady return to New England next season?
Los Angeles Chargers
Philip Rivers has moved to Florida and all indications point to him not being with the Chargers. The Chargers are coming off a disappointing season. Los Angeles was one of my sleeper picks last season. With the Melvin Gordon holdout and a plethora of injuries, the Chargers had a losing season. When healthy, the Chargers are as talented as anyone in the league. With a couple great weapons at receiver, an All-Pro caliber tight end and decent running game, how about Los Angeles? Tom Brady is from California and the amount of fanfare would be through the roof. With the addition of Brady, the AFC West would become more competitive. Could you envision Tom Brady heading out west and playing with the Chargers?
Las Vegas Raiders
How huge would it be if Tom Brady were to sign with the Las Vegas Raiders? While Derek Carr is a really good quarterback, Jon Gruden hasn’t really been sold on him. The Raiders almost made the playoffs last season and have a talented team. When free agency starts, a lot of talent would probably consider a move to Vegas. The Raiders have been drafting well also and got some pieces to work with on offense. At the UFC 246 event, speculation was amped up when Brady was talking to the Raiders owner. With two teams being a viable option in the AFC West, what’s the possibility Brady heads out west?
The Tennessee Titans are coming off an appearance in the AFC championship game. With the Titans likely moving on from Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill possibly leaving via free agency, Tennessee could be an option. Tom Brady is familiar with Head Coach Mike Vrabel as they played with the Patriots together. Tennessee would be a great landing spot as they have some talented wide receivers including rookie of the year candidate, A.J. Brown. The Titans would love to resign Derrick Henry and with a nice defense, the Titans could make another run. The addition of Tom Brady could be the difference between a nice season to a possible Super Bowl appearance. Would Tom Brady consider a move to Tennessee?
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
You might be thinking why would Brady even think about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Tampa Bay finished last season with a 7-9 record, but the offense has a lot of potential. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are Pro Bowl talent and the running game is improving. The Buccaneers could move on from Jameis Winston after he threw for over 5,000 yards. The problem is that he became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 30 TDs and 30 INTs in the same season. With a quarterback that doesn’t turn the ball over a lot it would improve the defense also. Bruce Areans is a phenomenal coach and I’m sure Tom Bray would mind playing for him. The question is, would Tom Brady even consider Tampa Bay in free agency?
