Bill Belichick Gets Honest About Tom Brady’s Patriots Future
Bill Belichick got honest about Tom Brady’s Patriots future this week.
Rather than promising that the future Hall of Fame quarterback will be back in New England in 2020, Belichick acknowledged that everything was up in the air.
Belichick’s Patriots were upset in the AFC Divisional Round by the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night.
Following the outing, the head coach acknowledged that anything was possible with Brady’s future. Still, he made it a point to note that he had nothing but the utmost respect for the passer whose career will forever be linked to his own in the record books.
“Tom is an iconic figure in this organization,” he said.
“No one respects Tom more than I do.”
Bill Belichick says he has no timeline on making a decision about Tom Brady’s future. He is adamantly deflecting any questions about Brady’s future, whether Brady will be his QB in 2020, his own coaching future, etc.. He notes once again that it’s only 12 hours after the game.

The story of the game on Saturday night was New England’s offense not being able to keep up with Tennessee’s rushing game.
Behind 182 yards and a touchdown from running back Derrick Henry, the Titans kept the pressure on one of the league’s best defenses from start to finish.
Ultimately, Brady just couldn’t come up with the game-winning drive that we have come to expect from him.
When it was all said and done, Brady was held without a score and recorded only 209 passing yards.
