NFL free agency is set to begin exactly one month from today. Tom Brady is set to hit the open market for the first time in his career.
Brady, 42, is widely believed to be seriously considering a departure from New England. The six-time Super Bowl champion has been linked to multiple NFL franchises, including the Las Vegas Raiders and the Los Angeles Chargers.
It remains to be seen what teams are of interest to Brady, but if he does leave the Patriots, you can bet on him going to a team that's ready to contend. Brady isn't likely to leave a good situation in New England for a team with little to no Super Bowl hopes.
Some details are starting to emerge from Brady's free agency plans. It does not look like Brady will be going on some big free agency tour.
"I’ve also heard we shouldn’t be expecting TOM BRADY FREE AGENT TOUR 2020: COAST-TO-COAST WITH THE GOAT! If Brady hits free agency, he may try to set up meetings at one location instead of creating a circus. That’s a 'what I’m hearing…' so take it for what that’s worth," NBC Sports Boston's Tom Curran reported.
That isn't very surprising. We've seen the same thing in the NBA, where LeBron James and Kevin Durant had teams come to them.
Brady, meanwhile, continues to be kind of cryptic on social media. He posted a photo on Instagram with a Bill Belichick-themed "no days off" caption on Monday night.
What does it all mean? We'll find out soon. NFL free agency is set to begin on March 18.
