Tom Brady is heading into free agency unsure for which team he’s going to play for next season for the first time in his career.
According to a report from CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora Brady is ready to meet with teams and “weigh all options” during free agency.

For the first time in his NFL career, Tom Brady is prepared to discuss a future with teams beyond the New England Patriots, sources said, and for the first time since he took over as a starter nearly two decades ago, the Patriots are unsure of who will be under center in 2020.
Brady intends to take a methodical approach to his first foray into free agency, as, at age 42, this will be the final contract of his playing career.
Brady and his team will weigh all options available to determine which opportunity provides the best chance to continue competing for the Lombardi Trophy and to see what other organizations think of him at this late stage in his career.
As one source put it, Brady will do his due diligence to assess all realistic possibilities, with it only “human nature” to explore this chance to embrace his free-agent status for the first time in his career.
La Canfora’s report comes a day after Brady was seen talking to Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis at UFC 246 in Vegas which led to fans assuming Brady was interested in joining the Raiders.
It’s still hard to fathom Brady playing for another team other than the Patriots and I still think he’s a lock to return to New England despite all the chatter surrounding him.
