Ex-Patriots Teammate Says He Believes New England Is ‘100 Percent Done’ With Tom Brady
Former New Englad Patriots tight end turned sports talk radio host Christian Fauria, like just about every other person with an even tangential connection to the NFL thinks he has an idea what is going to happen with Tom Brady when free agency begins on March 18th at 4 p.m. ET.
Wednesday during WEEI’s Ordway, Merloni & Fauria Show, the man who caught 13 touchdowns from Tom Brady from 2002 to 2005, says he believes the Patriots have already moved on from Brady.
“I believe the Patriots are 100 percent done,” said Fauria. “I think the Patriots are okay and ready to move on. Everything that comes out from (NFL Network reporter) Ian Rapoport is just bogus-ness. It’s fake, it’s narrative changing, it’s camouflage, it’s not the truth because there’s going to be ‘it’s not our fault’ fans. They know Brady’s not coming back.”
“I think the Patriots knew they weren’t signing him before the season started,” Fauria shared. “I don’t think they want him for $13 million, I don’t think they want him period, and I think that Brady knows it. Why do you like a tweet from the LA Chargers?”
“Next time he shows up at Gillette Stadium, it will be either as a guest playing for another team, or getting a red jacket,” he added.
Fauria later dialed back his prediction to 99.6% certainty that the Patriots are done with Brady after 20 spectacular seasons.
