We are a month away from the start of the March 16 legal tampering period when teams can negotiate with agents.
Rumors about Tom Brady’s future is heating up and will only continue to get hotter as we near that date.
Officially, the Patriots are the only team currently allowed to negotiate and have talks with Brady and his agent.
But according to Mike Reiss of ESPN, there has been no movement between the two sides.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft has made it clear that he wants Brady back, and is expected to be involved in negotiations, but has entrusted Bill Belichick to make the final decision from a football standpoint.
So many questions can be asked. Will Belichick want to pay a soon-to-be-43-year-old quarterback more than $30 million per year? Kraft sure would. Belichick? Who knows.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported a couple of weeks ago that the Las Vegas Raiders plan to pursue Brady if he was to reach the open market. Plenny of other teams will have quarterback decisions to make. Brady could be an option.
With the way things are headed, it sure looks like Brady will reach the open market.
