A Boston radio host is certain that Tom Brady will not wear a Patriots shirt this year.
"I think the patriots are 100 percent finished," said Christian Fauria Brady said on WEEI & # 39; s Ordway, Merloni & Fauria, "I think the patriots are fine and ready to go on."
This happened after Fauria, a former Brady teammate, said he believed Brady was 99.6 percent likely to leave New England.
Brady becomes a free agent for the first time in his 20-year career when he and the Patriots cannot agree on a new contract until March 18, 2010.
After earning $ 23 million in 2019 according to Spotrac, the 42-year-old signal caller is expected to earn at least $ 30 million in the crowded quarter free agent market. Fauria doesn't think the patriots will offer him that or anything like that.
"I think the patriots knew they didn't sign it before the season started," said Fauria. "I don't think they want him for $ 13 million, I don't think they want him for a period, and I think Brady knows. Why do you like a tweet from the LA Chargers?"
Fauria only refers to Brady's latest social media smoke signal, which has been extremely cryptic against the titans since the sudden end of the patriot season in the wildcard round. However, his theory contradicts a report before the Super Bowl by Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network.
"Everything that comes from Ian Rapoport is just a hoax," he said. "It's a fake, the story changes, it's camouflage, it's not the truth, because there will be fans who are not to blame for us." You know Brady is not coming back. "
The Brady family moved to their $ 9 million home in Greenwich, Connecticut earlier this year after listing their Brookline, Massachusetts property.
"I feel good about this," said Fauria. "I mean, think about it, I actually believe Mike Giardi. I think there is a house. I think Tom Brady is no different from Philip Rivers. You live the same life. … Philip Rivers is now a free agent, Tom Brady will be a free agent [soon], "
If Brady joins a free agency, his list of potential applicants would be extensive. The Los Angeles Chargers, which officially left Rivers this week, and the Las Vegas Raiders are expected to occupy both slots. Some have speculated that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys could even be landing sites for the seasoned quarterback.
"The next time he shows up at Gillette Stadium, it will either be a guest playing for another team or he will get a red jacket," said Fauria.
Wherever he lands, Brady's priorities have been clarified.
"He wants the team to pay for some weapons, and ultimately" with a talented team that can win now, "said Rapoport on February 2.
