Twenty years with one organization is finally enough for the greatest quarterback of all time.
Former Michigan quarterback Tom Brady announced on social media on Tuesday morning that he’ll be playing for a team other than the New England Patriots in 2020.
“I don’t know what my football future holds but it is time for me to open a new stage for my life and career,” Brady announced.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Los Angeles Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers both offered Brady over $30 million per year on Monday during the start of the NFL’s legal tampering period. Brady and all free agents can officially start signing with their new team on Wednesday. Bucs head coach Bruce Arians said at the NFL Combine that if Brady made it to free agency he’d be picking up a phone to see if Brady would be interested in heading to Tampa.
What once seemed like far-fetched speculation has become reality, Brady’s time in New England is done. Now we await where Tom will be suiting up this season and beyond.
