Earlier this week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter connected a few dots before the New England Patriots faced off against the New York Jets.
Schefter made headlines when he suggested Tom Brady will be moving on from New England after the season. Brady placed his house for sale, his trainer did the same and Brady’s contract runs out after the 2019 campaign.
One ESPN NFL analyst agrees and thinks Brady is “done.” Former NFL player Marcus Spears said he thinks Brady will retire after the season.
“He’s retiring. I think Brady’s done. Reflection is always the tell-tale sign for football players…So he’s done,” Spears said.
“I think Brady’s done.”

The Patriots star quarterback addressed Schefter’s comments in an interview with WEEI. In the interview, Brady did not confirm or deny a move from the Patriots.
“I think that has been a unique situation that I have been in because I think when you commit to a team for a certain amount of years you kind feel like (there is) the responsibility to always fulfill the contract,” Brady said.
“For me, it’s been good because I am just taking it day-by-day and I am enjoying what I have. I don’t know what the future holds and the great part is for me, football at this point is all borrowed time.”
Brady and the Patriots are 7-0 and look poised for another deep playoff run.
