Report: Tom Brady Has Spoken With Patriots Regarding Free Agency Status

There have been a lot of rumors surrounding Tom Brady’s impending free agency status. The quarterback offered a brief update on the matter ahead of Super Bowl LIV.

Brady spoke with Jim Gray during Westwood One Radio’s Super Bowl pregame show. The 42-year-old quarterback said there have been discussions with the New England Patriots as the expiration of his current contract approaches.

“Yeah, I have. Yep,” Brady told Gray. “I am not going to elaborate much more than that, but yes, I have. I think that is a pretty normal thing for me. Again, these are people who have been a part of my life for a very long time.”

On March 18 Brady is set to hit free agency status for the first time in his career. His future has been a hot topic throughout this season, with rumors of him leaving New England intensifying since Patriots bowed out of the 2019 NFL playoffs in the wild-card round.

“I think they know how I feel about them and I know how they feel about me,” Brady told Gray. “We’ve always had a great relationship and we always will. There’s not much to say other than that. There’s a lot again — everyone needs to take some time to evaluate where they are at and evaluate the decisions they need to make moving forward.

“The Patriots will do that. Every team will do that. The players who have the opportunity to be free agents will do that. And then when the time is right — I guess in six weeks from now — everyone will make their decisions.”

Brady Open-Minded About His Future

Brady once said he is “open-minded” about the possibility to join another team. 

“I’m open-minded about the process,” Brady said. “At the same time, I love playing football and I want to continue to play and do a great job. I’m looking forward to what’s ahead. Whatever the future may bring, I’ll embrace it with open arms.”
