Tom Brady Teammate Says He Is Done With Patriots
Tom Brady’s teammate says he is done with the Patriots.
Brady is set to become a free agent for the first time in two decades. Given that he is unrestricted, the future Hall of Fame quarterback is free to sign with whomever he pleases.
New England will not be able to franchise tag the 43-year-old.
Recently, former Patriots tight end Christian Fauria appeared on WEEI’s Ordway, Merloni and Fauria Show.
During his interview, he suggested that New England was definitely getting ready to head in a new direction.
“I believe the Patriots are 100 percent done,” he said. “I think the Patriots are OK and ready to move on.”
Fauria spent four years in New England as Brady’s teammate. Over the course of that time, he caught 13 touchdown passes.
“I think the Patriots knew they weren’t signing him before the season started,” Fauria continued.
“I don’t think they want him for $13 million, I don’t think they want him period, and I think that Brady knows it. Why do you like a tweet from the LA Chargers?”
The social media post that Fauria is referencing is one in which Brady reportedly “liked” news of Philip Rivers and the Chargers agreeing to go their separate ways.
That obviously frees up the starting quarterback slot for the organization that Brady has been most closely linked to over the past few months.
Up to this point, Brady has also been linked to the Las Vegas Raiders, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts.
Currently, the Raiders are the favorites to land Brady at +300. From there it is the Los Angeles Chargers at +400, Tampa Bay Buccaneers at +700 and Carolina Panthers at +900.
Where will Brady ultimately end up? We’ll find out in a few day’s time.
