Sports Interaction oddsmakers have made the Patriots the favourites at -250 to re-sign the six-time Super Bowl champion. Does it make the most sense for the superstar pivot to return to the franchise that drafted him?
The New England Patriots season ended a lot earlier than most expected with a 14-13 loss to the Titans on Wildcard weekend. Now, the franchise’s biggest question, perhaps the football world’s biggest question is: What is the future of free agent Tom Brady?
In the eyes of many, Brady is the greatest Quarterback in the history of the game and a lock for the Hall of Fame, but it’s anyone’s best guess where (if anywhere) he ends up next season.
NFL Odds To Sign Tom Brady
Sports Interaction oddsmakers have made the Patriots the favourites at -250 to re-sign the six-time Super Bowl champion. Does it make the most sense for the superstar pivot to return to the franchise that drafted him in the sixth round in 2000? He’s already racked up over 74,500 passing yards and 541 touchdowns, what more can he do? Is it time to move on?
Does the bright lights of the City of Angels tempt the Brady family? There have also been links to the Chargers. Los Angeles’ “second team” would jump to the front pages of the newspapers if Brady was there starting Quarterback. It currently pays +600.
The Indianapolis Colts could provide Brady with a lot of different weapons and plenty of youth; a good running game, excellent wide receiving options, double Tight Ends and perhaps one of the most underrated offensive lines to protect the 42 year old signal caller. The Colts check in at +700 to secure this services.
An interesting scenario which has been rumoured about in the media is that Brady would be the perfect marketing tool to introduce the Raiders to their new home in Las Vegas. If you believe this, perhaps taking a flyer at Sports Interaction at +2000 could be a good bet.
Would he stay in the division? The Bills and Jets appear to have younger options in place, but the beautiful weather of South Beach could be calling. There is also some familiarity to Brady within the Miami organization as former Patriots assistant Brian Flores is the teams Head Coach. The Dolphins clock in as +2000 long shots to convince the legend to head to South Beach.
The biggest long shots on the board are the Cardinals, Ravens, Texans, Chiefs and Seahawks all paying +25000 if he were to sign on the dotted line.
The topic of retirement was mentioned after the loss to the Titans, but Brady stated he’d like to continue playing. If he has a change of heart there is a seperate retirement prop listed with yes paying +600 and no paying -1429.
NFL free agency officially begins on March 18.
