Tom Brady announces he’s leaving the Patriots in NFL free agency

Tom Brady is leaving the Patriots.

Where is he going? To be decided, but the NFL will never look the same.

Brady, 42, announced via social media on Tuesday morning that he is finished in New England after 20 seasons, six Super Bowl wins in nine appearances and three MVPs.

Unless Brady has a trick up his sleeve – anything is possible now – his market is headed by the Buccaneers and Chargers, two teams who finished well out of the playoff race last season.

NFL Network reported both teams made “strong offers” to Brady, “believed to be” in excess of $30 million per year.

Even with the genius of Bill Belichick stalking the sidelines, it is difficult to see this as the end of the Patriots dynasty. The Patriots won 16 of the last 17 AFC East titles, only missing out during the season Brady missed all but one game due to injury.

The Patriots were led by Matt Cassel then. Now? Second-year quarterback Jarret Stidham is atop the depth chart, but free agent Teddy Bridgewater and trade candidates Andy Dalton make the most sense to fill the enormous shoes.
