A few weeks ago, the question of where Tom Brady will be playing next year was one of the biggest stories in sports and we were treated to new reports and rumors on a daily basis concerning the multiple teams in the hunt to lure the quarterback away from New England for the first time in his career.
However, the Brady saga has been placed on the backburner a bit over the past couple of weeks after essentially every league in the midst of a season either put things on hold or canceled the remaining slate of games entirely over coronavirus fears and it doesn’t seem like they’re going to resume operations at any point in the near future.
As a result, we’re currently dealing with a severe shortage of sports stories, and if you’re itching to get your fix, then you’re going to largely have to rely on reports concerning the NFL offseason, which isn’t necessarily the most thrilling thing to follow, but hey, at least it’s something.
As of earlier this month, there were a number of teams who were reportedly in the hunt for Brady but that list has gradually grown smaller as the 49ers—who were reportedly the QB’s top choice—decided to stick with Jimmy Garoppolo and the Titans opted to put their faith in Ryan Tannehill in the form of a four-year, $118 million deal.
As a result, it appears Brady will now be forced to choose between returning to the Patriots (who have reportedly offered him a fairly underwhelming deal) or taking his talents to Tampa, which has allegedly offered to give him total control over the roster in an attempt to lure him in.
However, after months of endless drama and speculation, it appears all signs are pointing to Brady ending up right back where he’s always been when everything is said and done, as Jeremy Fowler recently spoke with a number of NFL executives and reported the consensus seems to be he’ll be donning a Patriots uniform next year.
Of course, this could just be another rumor in an endless line of them but I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
