One ESPN NFL insider believes there are two frontrunners for Tom Brady. And neither of them are the New England Patriots.
ESPN NFL insider Jeff Darlington appeared on Adam Schefter’s podcast this week. The veteran NFL reporter named two teams the frontrunners for the 42-year-old Brady, who is set to enter free agency next month.
Darlington believes two AFC teams have emerged as the favorites to sign Brady. The Patriots are not one of those teams, according to the ESPN insider.
“I put the Titans and (Las Vegas) Raiders, right now, as the frontrunners for Tom Brady’s services,” Darlington told Schefter. “Tennessee has to be considered one of the bright spots when you look at what Tom Brady is looking for in free agency — whether it is the team itself and what they possess personnel-wise, whether it is the ability to potentially collaborate with the head coach and have some say in both game-planning and personnel.
“I quite frankly think the Tennessee Titans make a lot of sense for Tom Brady.”
The Titans are coached by one of Brady’s former teammates in Mike Vrabel. They’re also located in Nashville, which could be a nice city for Gisele and the rest of Brady’s family.
There’s been a lot of speculation about Brady’s decision for the past month-plus. And that speculation is going to continue to run rampant until Brady actually makes a decision.
That decision probably isn’t coming for a month or so. NFL free agency begins on March 18 and it’s doubtful that Brady will agree to a new contract with the Patriots before that. He appears to be set on entering the open market.
