Tom Brady has helped keep the New England Patriots in Super Bowl contention nearly ever season since he came into the NFL. He is without question the greatest of all-time at the quarterback position. Very few people will even try to argue that point.

A new chapter of football will begin this offseason for Brady for the first time in his career. Brady took to social media to announce that he will not end up returning to the Patriots.

At this point in time, it is unknown where Brady will end up signing to play the next chapter of his career following his dynasty with the Patriots.. So far, teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Los Angeles Chargers, and Las Vegas Raiders have made the biggest moves to try to sign him. The Indianapolis Colts could also be a team to watch.

Last season with the Patriots, Brady completed 60.8 percent of his pass attempts for 4,057 yards, 24 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Those numbers aren’t terrible, but they aren’t the dominant production that we have grown used to.

Brady still has a couple of years left to play at a high level in the NFL. Leaving the Patriots at this point of his career is a surprise, but things simply weren’t the way they used to be between Brady and Bill Belichick.

Expect to hear more information in the near future about the teams interested in signing Brady. The teams mentioned above make sense, but there could be others getting involved. Unfortunately, the Patriots are not going to be able to bring him back this time.
