Tom Brady will play for a new team in 2020 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are one of the favorites to land the 42-year-old signal caller.

Brady's been linked to either the Patriots or Titans for the majority of the offseason. But he'll play for neither in 2020, meaning a team like the Bucs or even the Chargers has a strong chance of signing the coveted free agent.

Brady's kept his free agency relatively quiet, leaving few hints along the way. But Bucs' GM Jason Licht cleared the air on Tuesday afternoon.

Licht admitted there's definitely interest in Brady, but there is "no deal in place" just yet, according

Bucs' GM Jason Licht acknowledged there is interest in free-agent QB Tom Brady, the two sides spoke Monday, but there has been no conversation today and there is no deal in place. "We're waiting to see what Tom decides just like everybody else," Licht said.

">ESPN's Adam Schefter. It looks like Brady is keeping everyone in the dark at the current moment:

Brady has a track record of not leaking much information to the media or even players. It's highly unlikely anyone will know where he'll be heading for the 2020 season until Brady announces it himself.

But it's pretty clear it'll come down to either the Bucs or the Chargers, unless a surprise team swoops in at the last moment. The 42-year-old is looking to finish out his career on a high note, so it may come down to which team Brady believes has the best roster.

Brady may be on his way to Tampa if he likes what the Bucs have to offer.
