I don't think he necessarily has to have agreed somewhere.

Bill knows the inevitable is coming. They have a good defense now. Bill probably even wants to retire gracefully.


Bill may have just held firm and said we're not paying you more than X period. Brady said no deal I want some of that new money.


It's as good as time as any to make the transition. New QB with Bill + McD. Few more years Bill exits and experienced QB + McD.

I think everyone assumed he was going to eventually return so posting that not only gives Brady a better chance to get teams into a bidding war but gives the Pats a chance a better chance to attract a free agent QB

Will be fun to see Brees and Brady compete in the same division.

How is an immobile QB who can’t throw long going to survive in Arians downfield passing game?
He’s gonna die.

There's a lot of MVP awards in that division right now.

It made me so sad to see Brady without the Patriots logo next to him.

I'm confused by the decision. Did the Patriots not offer $30/year?! If I were him, I'd rather finish my career in New England than switch to TB and be the fall guy if things don't go amazing. We'll see, I wish him the best.

They definitely didn’t offer $30m/year

The fans just watched a season of Jameis Winston, Brady will never be the fall guy in Tampa. Arians maybe.

As a Jets fan, I am giddy seeing Tommy Boy don another jersey, especially an ugly one although I think they are changing them up. With that said, I still have another season of Adam Gase ahead of me so I can’t get too happy. But this helps.

This is the only silver lining I can find. It's survival of the fittest between the two. Whoever stays upright longer will hold records for at least a decade, probably longer. I'm not optimistic this will be pretty in Tampa, but would like to be wrong.

As a Bucs fan I have to say this was a terrible move. The offensive line will have Brady on IR by game 6. Giving up on Winston who has many years ahead of him and adding the GOAT when he is clearly at the end of his time is stupid. He does not have Favre arm strength to carry him in these next couple of years. Bad Move TB. Both of you!

I expect Brady to play the Brady offense and not Arians air raid; I’d be very worried about Mike Evans with Brady.

Godwin’s value feels more or less the same.
