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.



Las Vegas Raiders (+500) It's Vegas, baby, and what better way to kick off the Raiders' inaugural season in Sin City than having the greatest pigskin slinger known to man under the big top for what is sure to be the NFL's version of The Greatest Show on Earth. If John Gruden can pull this rabbit out of his hat then he will be in owner Mark Davis' good graces for a lifetime. Brady would replace Derek Carr and step into an offense that was ranked eighth in passing yards last year but a lowly 24th in points scored and points allowed. As much of a hoot as it might be for Tom Terrific to play the heel and run out of the concourse each Sunday in the Silver & Black, winning is more important than anything to him, and Vegas is not a Super Bowl destination - at least not this year.

Los Angeles Chargers (+600) Phillip Rivers has been sent packing after 16 seasons with the Bolts and the eight-time Pro Bowler will have to ply his trade elsewhere while the Chargers try to generate a legitimate fan base in the City of Angels with a more exciting option under center. All the beautiful people are in LA and so is the fashion world to which Brady has assimilated, courtesy of his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen. However, a rabid fan base is not part and parcel of the Chargers package and as alluring as it might be for Brady to hang his hat in LA, it should also be noted that Gisele has more of an affinity for New York, and we all know the saying - happy wife, happy life.
