Tom Brady’s future is still unwritten, according to those in his inner circle.
Speaking Thursday on SiriusXM’s “Opening Drive,” Charlie Weis — the Patriots offensive coordinator from 2000 to 2004 — relayed a previous discussion with the 42-year-old quarterback over incessant speculation about his next move.
“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,’” Weis said, per ESPN.
Weis, who is said to have “remained close with Brady,” continued: “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.”
With Brady set to become a free agent this month for the first time in his 20-year NFL career, rumors about his potential landing spots have ranged from the Las Vegas Raiders to the Tennessee Titans, and most recently, the San Francisco 49ers.
Though Brady and Patriots coach Bill Belichick made contact last week, a source told the Boston Herald the exchange “didn’t go well.” It remains to be seen if that conversation becomes the catalyst of a potential Brady-Patriots divorce.
Free agency gets underway on Wednesday, March 18.
