Adam Schefter dropped a bombshell report on Thursday, saying Tom Brady is more likely to leave the Patriots for another team than remain with the AFC powerhouse. His statement on ESPN’s Get Up has people wondering where the six-time champion could go next.
Leaving the Patriots would be a stunning move on Brady’s part, but it doesn’t sound unrealistic.
Schefter sounded very convincing on Get Up. After all, Brady did void his contract and put his house in New England up for sale.
"He's either staying in New England, he's retiring or he's going to play somewhere else. … Staying in New England to me, would seem like the least likely option of the three."@AdamSchefter just blew Greeny's mind about Tom Brady 🤯 pic.twitter.com/MOf211UaC6

Even though Brady is currently focused on winning yet another title in Foxborough, it’s never too early to think about where he’ll land.
Here are three teams Brady could sign with in 2020.
1. Buffalo Bills
It’d be quite the story if Brady joined forces with the Bills and took down the Patriots. Sure, Josh Allen is supposed to be the future in Buffalo, but he’s not showing much improvement in his second year.
Buffalo could add Brady to a roster that already has an elite defense. Combine that with his incredible record in frigid conditions, and the Bills would be a legitimate threat for as long as he’s in town.
2. Tennessee Titans
At this point it’s become very clear that Tennessee loves adding any free agents from New England. Over the past few years, the Titans signed Malcolm Butler, Logan Ryan and Dion Lewis.
Tennessee doesn’t have a franchise quarterback on its roster. Even at this age, Brady would be a significant upgrade over Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill.
Brady’s former teammate, Mike Vrabel, is the head coach of the Titans and would provide him a sense of familiarity. Let’s also not forget that Tennessee has a running game anchored by Derrick Henry.
3. Chicago Bears
Ask anyone in Chicago what the biggest issue is with the Bears and they’d immediately blame Mitch Trubisky. His third year in the NFL isn’t going as well as people hoped.
Brady might not be the perfect fit for Matt Nagy’s offense, but he’d get the ball out quick to their playmakers. More importantly, he’d remain on a roster that features a dominant defense.
