Earlier this week, Adam Schefter had the football world buzzing because he discussed the idea of New England losing Tom Brady after this season. On Thursday, he decided to double down on that stance.

Brady will go down in history as the greatest quarterback of his generation. He's won six championships, made several trips to the Pro Bowl and has countless moments that will live on for decades.

While the Patriots continue to dominate the AFC with Brady under center, the defending champions will eventually have to think about life without their Hall of Fame quarterback.

Right now, the Patriots aren't thinking about the idea of Brady leaving. However, Schefter believes there's a strong possibility that he either retires or plays for another team next year.

Schefter appeared on ESPN's Get Up to discuss what the future has in store for Brady.

"I don't think he knows how it's going to play out after this year. But again, just look at the basic facts. He's selling his house and he's voiding his contract. Doesn't that tell you something? There are three options: he's staying in New England, retiring or playing somewhere else. I would think staying in New England is the least likely option of the three."

Here's the full report from Schefter:

It would be odd if Brady played for another NFL team. On the other hand, we've seen legendary quarterbacks suit up for other franchises in the past, such as Joe Montana and Peyton Manning.

Do you think Brady will play for any other team besides the Patriots?
