Will Tom Brady Be Taking His Talents Elsewhere? Oddsmakers Think No

  • Tom Brady could become the longest-tenured player in NFL history.
  • The Patriots are set to offer $30 million to Brady.
  • The Las Vegas Raiders and LA Chargers are teams that could go after Brady.

BOSTON – As the NFL free agency period is set to begin on March 18th, both Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have an important decision to make. It is whether or not the two sides will be parting ways with each other or keep their partnership thriving.

The spotlight is set to be shined on Brady and the Patriots in what is a star-filled free agency.

To Be Or Not To Be A Patriot

Obviously, the Patriots would love to have their franchise quarterback return this offseason. If Brady does return for a 21st season, he would tie long-time Detroit Lions kicker Jason Hanson for the longest-tenured player with one team.

Tom Brady has played at a Hall of Fame level since entering the league. Through his career, he has thrown 541 touchdowns while throwing at an impressive 63.8% completion rate.

Going into next season, Brady has 14 Pro-Bowl appearances, 3 All-Pro selections, 6 Super Bowl rings, 4 Super Bowl MVP awards and 3 NFL MVP awards.

The Patriots have reported that they’d be willing to shell out a whopping $30 million to the 20-year quarterback if he were to stay put in New England.

If Brady were to stay with the team, it’s likely that he’d want the team to spend on more offensive weapons as well.

Although $30 million could be enough to keep Brady, if he does decide to leave, the Patriots could not do anything about it, as they are not allowed to use their franchise tag on him. If $30 million were to be offered and accepted, it would put his salary up there with the other elite quarterbacks in the league such as Russell Wilson, Ben Roethlisberger and Aaron Rodgers.

Raiders And Chargers Set To Make Run At Brady

If Brady were to leave New England, the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers have both expressed their desire to go after him during the free agency period.

Of any team that is not the Patriots, the Raiders have the highest odds to land him at +300. They have enough offensive weapons like Darren Waller, Tyrell Williams and Josh Jacobs to make Brady even consider making the move to Las Vegas.

Not to mention, but they also have an impressive offensive line lead by a familiar face to Brady in Trent Brown.

The Chargers, on the other hand, are in a bit of a dilemma as Philip Rivers is heading into free agency as well.

Their odds are just above those of the Raiders at +400. Who better to replace Rivers with than Brady? The Chargers would also turn Brady’s head if all of their offensive pieces returned next season with receivers like Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, a run game of Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler and a proven tight end in Hunter Henry.

Sportsbooks though still believe that Brady will return as a Patriot. His odds to stay in New England are set at -350, while his odds for leaving New England (not retiring) are +225.
