Tom Brady Announces He’s Leaving the Patriots After 20 Years
Written by laserteam on March 17, 2020
Tom Brady said goodbye to the New England Patriots in a series of posts on Instagram on Tuesday, ending his 20-year run with the only NFL team he has ever known.
Brady did not say which team he will sign with for the 2020 season, but he did indicate he was leaving. He officially hits the league’s open market Wednesday but could reach an agreement with another team Tuesday, when players and clubs can negotiate deals.
A league source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Brady has not yet made a decision on where he will play and will be exploring his options. Buccaneer’s general manager Jason Licht acknowledged to Schefter that he has an interest in Brady and said that the two sides spoke Monday. He said there has been no conversation Tuesday and there is no deal in place.
“We’re waiting to see what Tom decides just like everybody else,” Licht said.
What Brady has decided for sure is that he’s moving on.
“Although my football journey will take place elsewhere, I appreciate everything that we have achieved and am grateful for our incredible TEAM accomplishments,” he wrote on Instagram.
