Tom Brady is scheduled to become a free agent in March and there’s been a lot of chatter that he might leave New England.
Brady grew up idolizing 49ers great Joe Montana, who spent the final two seasons of his career in Kansas City.
Montana says he has no regrets about his final two years in Kansas City, but he would advise Brady to finish his career in New England if that’s possible.
“It’s not easy to go to another team and get accepted, no matter how much success you’ve had and how many years you’ve played,” Montana told Mike Silver of NFL Network. “It’s a process to go through, and it takes time to get used to the team. I was fortunate because (former 49ers quarterbacks coach) Paul Hackett was there running the offense, and so I was pretty familiar with probably three-quarters of the offense going in. And, if they let [Brady] have his own offense (with a new team), yeah, that makes it a little bit easier. But still, the transition of moving. …I just can’t see how they would let him leave there, myself.”
There’s been a bunch of rumors that the Las Vegas Raiders or Los Angeles Chargers could be potential landing spots for Brady is he leaves New England.
The Patriots can’t use the franchise or transition tag on Brady, so barring a new deal before the start of the 2020 league year in March, Brady will hit the open market.
