Tom Brady Going Back To The Patriots?

Written by Tony Ghaul

Tom Brady has shown no signs of slowing down, despite the fact that his Buccaneers team is struggling. So, if he wants to continue his career beyond 2022, the 45-year-old would become one of the hottest names on the free agent market yet again.

Brady would have several suitors if he decides to keep playing a 24th season and take his talents elsewhere after a three-year stint with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Athletic’s Jeff Howe mentions: don’t count anything out when it comes to the Brady-Bill Belichick dynamic.

Brady and Bill Belichick still have an abundance of respect for one another. They’ve made points to say it publicly on multiple occasions since the QB departed for Tampa. They also spent 23 minutes together in the visiting locker room at Gillette Stadium following Brady’s return in 2021 — an appointment they set up prior to the game.

The Patriots would make sense as a landing spot for the future Hall of Famer. Brady would have to know that the offense is in capable hands. There have been criticisms of Matt Patricia’s first season as a play caller.

Would the Patriots enter the Tom Brady sweepstakes if they took place again next March? Anything is possible.
