    Well, let’s hope they come back with a better offer that may entice him to stay, but it just seems like the writing is on the wall that he’ll be moving on. Until we hear some leaked numbers, we have no idea if the offer was fair or not, but either way, I believe that he was still the 14th highest paid QB last year so his salary shouldn’t have been that different than it’s been for awhile. It just seems to be an odd time to make a big deal about it when you’re turning 43, as opposed to all of the fuss that he could’ve created over the years if he really wanted to. I don’t know.

    I think there's something to it, while it's not the one thing, it's likely a contributing factor. I have discounted the Tom-wants-to-play-until-he's-45-because-of-TB12 talk for sometime, but I am willing to acquiesce that that might be a factor. I think @robertweathers point of Tom as to who he is evolving is a factor. I think the lack of weapons is a factor. I think Tom wanting respect and that translating as a long term deal because he's earned the right to do what the hell he wants is a factor. I think Tom thinking that he's done everything there is to do and the organization should back him because he's made Kraft and Belichick HOFer's is a factor. I think Gronk's influence is a factor.

    Or, he signs a year to year deal here because the market is soft on a 43yr old slow footed GOAT. Then I say "NEVERMIND".

    Brady is worth more, financially to both the Chargers and the Raiders than he is to the Pats. Consider the jeresy sales alone. However, the Raiders will have absolutely no problem selling out each and every game. Its Vegas, the casinos alone would buy up all the tickets.

    The Chargers however, need Brady, they need something, they are co-locating with the Rams in their new stadium. The Chargers couldn't sell out a high school gym last year. No way they fill that stadium (without Brady). They need some sort of excitment. They have around $57 million in cap space right now, they can free up another $8.5 million by cutting Trai Turner. The have the Williams' and Kennan Allen, and a decent defense. Of course, that means two games a year versus the Chiefs, Raiders, and Denver, so making the playoffs would be tough, but they would be in LA (where his other son lives), sell everything on the East Coast, Giselle could make more money and Lord knows how much money the Chargers would be willing to put up for Brady.

    The more I think about it, how quickly they jettisoned Rivers, this may be the Chargers plan. And the more I think about it from a Brady perspective, this might be the place he is looking to go.

    I don't think Tom's other son lives in LA. He lives in NY.

    Bridget Moynahan has lived in New York since 2010 because she is on "Blue Bloods" which is in their 9th season on CBS. So...presumably Brady's eldest son lives in NY with his Mom. The kid was born in August of 2007...which will make him 13 years old this summer...and 2 years away from playing High School ball, IMO...that is if the kid plays sports. I think that's the plan...for Brady to play 2 more years and be a Dad at his son's games. Los Angeles has nothing to do with this, IMO. If they wanted to live in L.A., they would have never sold their house to Dr. Dre a few years back, IMO.

    I think wherever Brady goes....he will be commuting....

    Don’t tell the media. They still have Brady going to LA because his parents and son live “in California.”

    Edelman isn't worth keeping around if Brady is gone...he is still a great receiver but I'd rather blow it up and start from scratch. No point in keeping too many 30+ year olds around.

    From reports, it was a ****ty contract offer. Why should Brady have signed it?

    Jersey sales and merchandise revenues are shared equally by all teams so Brady won’t create a windfall for his next team

    No one reported that. What was reported is Tom rejected a multi year deal.

    Just because Tom rejected it, doesn't mean it was ****ty.

    All studies have shown that team value, ticket sales, and virtually everything an owner seeks financially is tied to winning games. This is why the "this team might sign Brady because this is a bUSiNeSs" report was asinine.

    If I were Edelman, I’d want out if Brady is gone.

    Brady's biggest issue, the thing he says over and over is that he wants to play until 45 and possibly beyond. It was indicated to him that the Pats want to go year to year. I believe he is looking for a bigger commitment in terms of years and that will be why he leaves. A real bummer but I get it on all fronts. The Pats won't give him a 3 year deal but at the same time, if he can find a team to give that to him, he should. Like Kraft said, after 20 years and 6 rings and he can do whatever he wants. Just sad for us fans. :(

    Holy ****, this proxy war between the TB and Patriots camps fought in the media is the most transparent and pointless charade. There hasn't been a single article published by anyone about the topic of Brady's free agency that serves any purpose other than to help one side's leverage. It's a public negotiation that we're being forced to read as if it's news.

    I don't know about that. He probably has one year left...he's been trying to build a brand, and I don't imagine he'll be very popular outside of the region. I think it's best for him long term to be a lifetime Patriot.

    Idk. Not sure he would see it that way. He’s pretty ****ing loyal. And Brady gets him the ball. He might think that a new city is a new market for his squirrel crap.

    But is it in NE’s best interest at what his reported price would be? I am not so sure. I have stated here multiple times other teams would be moronic for signing Brady. You think they don’t know he has to take time off from camps and practices more and more each year? That he showed signs of slowing down this season?

    Now the real reports are coming out saying the BS about teams wanting to throw big money at him. And certain media members want to call that the Pats doing Brady dirty isn’t that. It is called the mofo truth. There isn’t a rush to sign Brady because he flat out isn’t worth it at the money he is reportedly asking for.

    In some ways. I tend to believe the non Brady side. Brady thinks everyone sees him as 33 year old Tom Brady. Thats not reality no matter how much avocado ice cream he eats. Hell Montana warned him about leaving as well.

    Lol,Elijah.
    So mediots are holding a gun to your head forcing you to read this crap?
    Waterboarding you?
    I knew months ago that the earliest we would know anything is March 17 with the 18th prior to 4pm being more likely.
    So I haven't read any of these speculative so-called stories.
    Until the cba was done and more importantly the 2 day legal tampering was about over, nothing really COULD be done by either side.
    I got no sympathy for any of you that keep reading this garbage.
    What's the point? You're not going to learn anything.
    At 4pm 3/18 we'll all know exactly what's going on.
