Where in the World is Brady Playing in 2020?
What are the Odds?
The rumor mill is hot and heavy with speculation regarding Tom Brady's first free agent dalliance beginning on March 18th at 4:00 PM. After spending his entire career restructuring his contracts in order to allow the New England Patriots more cap room to sign more weapons, Brady has decided he will test the free-agent waters to see what his value is on the open market, even at age 43 when the 2020 season begins. So, without further ado, let's check out the odds if, in fact, Tom Brady is ready to leave New England.
New England Patriots (-125) It's ironic to see the odds on TB12 remaining pat and finishing his storied career in New England so low because the rumors in and around Foxboro are that Brady has all but written owner Robert Kraft a Dear John letter and is divesting himself of all things New England, including his mansion in the tony enclave of Brookline, Massachusetts. However, Brady knows what works and despite the sometimes-strained relationship with his iconic head coach, Bill Belichick, their dizzying success is interwoven and capturing one, or even two, more Super Bowls before he retires is more likely to happen in New England than anywhere else. Brady knows this but getting market value for his services, instead of taking the hometown discount, and demanding the Patriots procure the offensive weapons he so desperately desires all while staying under the salary cap might be a trick even Belichick can't pull off.
Tennessee Titans (+380) It's no secret that TB12 and Titans' head coach Mike Vrabel are not only former teammates but there's something of a bromance between the two. Adding fuel to the fire over the weekend, a fan from a few rows behind the trio of Brady, Julian Edelman, and talk show host Jimmy Fallon at the North Carolina/Syracuse basketball game recorded Brady and Edelman facetiming Vrabel on what was presumably Edelman's smartphone. The Titans could certainly use a future Hall-of-Famer to ramp up their offense and take Tennessee to a Super Bowl appearance, after falling to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game. Brady is familiar with scatback Dion Lewis from his days in New England and would welcome the talented triumvirate of the dynamic, young receiver A.J. Brown, veteran slot man Adam Humphries, and a potentially explosive tight end in Jonnu Smith. The downside is Tennessee's porous offensive line but a solid draft and a few pieces added to that puzzle through free-agency could fix those holes in the dike.
