Tom Brady is essentially dictating the direction of the upcoming NFL free agency window, so it’s easy to see why he’s getting frustrated with the endless speculation about his imminent decision.
Brady is being courted seriously by other teams for the first time in his career, and many believe that he’s already played his last game with the Patriots—as the 49ers, Titans, Chargers and Raiders reportedly sit among the clubs with interest in his services for 2020.
Former Patriots offensive coordinator Charlie Weis remains in close contact with Brady, and passed along some key information from the quarterback himself.
“I do have one bit of scoop for us. I've been texting with Tommy. I don't [usually] pass along these conversations, but one thing he told me — 'Nobody knows anything. So anyone who is telling you they know, they don't know.' I'm not going through any other part of the conversation [but] I followed up and he said, 'Clean it up.' So I'm cleaning it up,” Weis said recently on Sirius XM NFL Radio's "Opening Drive" via ESPN’s Mike Reiss.
Brady can officially sign with a new team on March 18, with the legal tampering window opening on March 16, where other clubs can officially negotiate the framework of a deal. Although it appeared like an impossibility at the start of the offseason, Brady could be leaving New England after two decades.
Then again, this is precisely the notion that Weis said Brady told us to ignore. Until then, we’ll keep our eyes peeled as the sporting world awaits where the GOAT signs.
