Another day, another Tom Brady free agency rumor.

Brady, 42, is less than a month away from hitting NFL free agency, which begins on March 18. The six-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback is believed to be seriously considering a departure from New England.

ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler shared the latest on Brady on Monday morning. He reiterated that most people around the league expect Brady to re-sign with the Patriots. However, New England will need to give Brady more weapons on offense in order to make that happen.

Fowler named a "Wild Card" team that is starting to get mentioned for Brady, though. The "Wild Card" team is the Denver Broncos. 

The Broncos, of course, had major success with Peyton Manning, winning a Super Bowl with the Hall of Fame quarterback in his final seasons.

Would Brady really want to go to a place where Manning ended his career, though? Most people likely doubt it.

Three other teams have reportedly been mentioned the most for Brady, outside of the Patriots, of course.

“The source said that three teams keep getting brought up as most likely to go after him — the Chargers, Raiders, and Buccaneers. Even though Brady will be 43 years old in August, it appears that he will be in high demand,” Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reports.

With the NFL Combine getting underway in Indianapolis, more Brady rumors are likely to surface in the coming days. Don't go anywhere.
