New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been making the rounds in the rumor mill as to his future in the NFL and where it will continue.
Should he not be re-signed by the Patriots, he can become a free-agent next month, and you can bet there will be plenty of interest for the six-time Super Bowl champion.
Joel Corry, a former NFL agent, believes he has the inside track on what he thinks will be in Brady’s future.
“Brady has an expiring contract for the first time in his illustrious 20-year career. Reports started surfacing around the Super Bowl that the Patriots would be willing to pay at least $30 million per year to keep Brady, and the Raiders would also be in pursuit. There has been plenty of speculation about the Chargers as a potential suitor since Philip Rivers won’t be back for a 17th season.
Brady has consistently stated he wants to play at until he’s at least 45. He is already in uncharted territory as the oldest full-time starting quarterback in league history. Ben Roethlisberger, who will be 38 in March, sets the older quarterback market. The Steelers gave him a two-year, $68 million extension where $37.5 million was fully guaranteed last April.”
Brady showed his age this past season with the lowest touchdown total since 2006 and his lowest completion percentage since 2013. Is he still worth that massive amount of cash despite his numerous accolades?
