Report: Patriots Are On The Clock For A Tom Brady Decision

The New England Patriots are going through an important phase. Star quarterback Tom Brady is about to hit free agency, and the entire Patriots nation wants Brady on the roster in 2020. Team owner Robert Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick share the same opinion as you. Bring Brady back! However, it may be tricky for the organization to bring back the best quarterback of all times.

Kraft and Brady will need a decision on TB12 to happen in near future.

Brady is the greatest of all times, and he is about to become a free agent for the first time in his professional career. Brady has spent 20 years with the Patriots, and he really likes how the organization flows. Will he stay with the team for another season?

The Patriots have until March 18 at 4 p.m. to sign a contract with the star quarterback before he hits the open market. We have every right to believe that the Patriots will do something a little earlier.

Will Tom Brady re-sign with the Patriots?

TB12 signed a $23 million contract in 2019. He would carry a dead cap hit on $13.5 million if he doesn’t fit on the roster by March 18. Well, if the team re-signs Brady before the free agency period begins, they may choose to distribute the cap hit over many years as opposed to having it consumed against the 2020 cap.

ESPN reported that the Patriots have yet to reach an agreement. The stipulation of the quarterback’s most recent deal bans the organization from applying the franchise tag. Some say this may hint towards Brady’s intention to visit with other organizations. Brady stands to earn $30 million a year as a free agent.

If the quarterback decides to check out the open market, he will have to wait until March 18 to see offers from other teams. That’s what the NFL suggests.

The Los Angeles Chargers are interested in Brady. The same applies to the Las Vegas Raiders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins. Who will land the star quarterback for the 2020 season? This will be the longest NFL season ever.
