Many analysts are worried about aging Tom Brady, and NFL scouts keep saying the same thing. The Patriots quarterback is a top target for many teams. The owners of these teams know that Brady is far from being washed up. Brady said the same thing in his recent post. He told the world that he is ready for the upcoming season. Yes, TB12 has so much to offer.
But, the same people who
support Brady are actually the ones who share a few concerns about him.
Brady was added to the injury report on several occasions. However, we never heard him complain. Scouts and execs from other NFL teams have concerns about Brady’s ability to finish the season successfully.
Are NFL scouts right about Tom Brady?
“I’ve been talking to a bunch of different people from around the league and front offices,” NFL Media’s Mike Giardi said Thursday, ” … And they’ve said, ‘Look, he’s still a good quarterback, capable of great moments.’ But the one thing that they all said to me, and I think this kind of sticks out — and maybe how they feel here in Foxboro — was ‘sustainability.’ Because he’s had a lot of issues over the last two years, physically. And no, he doesn’t miss games, but it’s impacted his performance. … Usually, when you turn 43, those things don’t get easier — they get harder to deal with.”
The quarterback will become a free agent in March. He will become a free agent for the first time in his long NFL career. Many are worried about this. Some say that Brady was frustrated with the last contract he signed. With this contract, Brady had an opportunity to enter the open market. Brady is 42, and he will start the new season at 43. Age has nothing on the quarterback, and he is ready to win a title this time.
New England left the postseason too soon, and head coach Bill Belichick is ready to make big changes to the roster. It looks like Phillip Dorsett is the first to leave the organization. Who is the next to go? Hopefully, Brady will stay for another season.
