At 42 years old, Tom Brady is showing no signs of slowing down for the New England Patriots. His team is about to be 7-0 on the season after tonight's win over the New York Jets.
Considering he's played his entire illustrious career with the Patriots, it is nearly impossible to imagine Brady playing anywhere else. However, ESPN insider Adam Schefter thinks it is a possibility.
On "Monday Night Countdown" tonight, Schefter and the rest of the ESPN panel addressed Brady's future. While he did not go as far as to predict the legendary QB will leave after the season, Schefter did say Brady is "setting it up to move."
"When we talk about Tom and his future, let's look at some simple things," Schefter said. "Has he put his home for sale? Yes. Has his trainer put up his home for sale? Yes. Has he set up his contract to void after the season to become a free agent? Yes. So if he's selling his home and his trainer is selling his home and he's voiding his contract, what does that tell you?"
Now, it is worth mentioning that Schefter did say Brady could be making these preparations in case he leaves or retires, only to turn around and ultimately re-up with the Patriots. He didn't outright say Brady won't be back in New England.
But even Steve Young hypothesized in the above clip that since it is easier for quarterbacks to play longer these days, Brady might have to be comfortable with possibly leaving the only team he has ever known.
For now though, Patriots fans shouldn't worry about any of this. Just enjoy your team's continued dominance as the premier franchise in the NFL.
