Brady was seen talking to the Raiders owner.
I guess everyone saw that.
I can't see Brady going to Oakland...but it's looking likely Tom isn't coming back here.
Not resigning him is not "getting rid of"
Pat him on the head and tell him that, “he’s the son he never had.”
Sure it is.
It’s a guaranteed lock he won’t be going to Oakland to play.
Dana White says Brady to Raiders has "legs"...whatever that means.
Except there is no Oakland team any more.
You assume Brady's first choice is to come back to play in NE. We don't know what he's thinking. If the Pats offer him a generous contract, and he says no, it's Brady getting rid of NE, not the other way around.
I think you're smart enough to know what I mean...
Probably means they might be interested. Anything more than that and the Pats will file a tampering claim.
I think last night was a clear attempt by Dana White to bring Brady and Mark Davis together. From an Raiders perspective, it makes sense. You are opening a new stadium. What's a better draw than the GOAT?
Just a different way of saying, “no, thank you.”
In your thought process, yes. In mine, nope.
Stranger things have happened, but I'd be surprised as well if he brings football back to Oakland.
I'm with you on this. No idea if the report is accurate. Hoping it's not. But if it IS, then Brady is gone. Because $13+million will already count towards the Pats' 2020 cap, PLUS then whatever he'd make in a new contract. Too much money tied up at QB, plain and simple. Brady HAS to understand this. If he wants to be back here, that's NOT the way to go because it would not give the Pats the financial ability to get him the help he needs. Period. If he signs an extension, that $13 million can be spread out, which will free up much-needed money.
BB and TB and RK all know this. So if it gets to that point, he's gone.
This is one big game of chicken. BB is not going to waste this defense and roll with some unknown commodity. They are built to beat KC on defense, that's a good start. If someone like Drew become available I could see it except that it will cost way more than Brady to get him unless he changes his stance on maxing out almost every contract.
