  Patriots | Tom Brady expected to test free agency waters    Sun Jan 19, 11:46 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady appears unlikely to agree to a new contract with the team before free agency begins in mid-March, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: Brady is set to be an unrestricted free agent when the new league year begins as he cannot be franchise-tagged by the Patriots. We've seen it before with guys like Joe Montana and Peyton Manning, so Brady may just be the next superstar quarterback to change teams late in his career. He is expected to take a methodical approach to determine where he will play next season, since this is the first time in his career that he will be eligible for free agency.

  Patriots | Tom Brady not done    Wed Jan 8, 09:41 AM

New England Patriots impending free-agent QB Tom Brady hinted on his Instagram that he wasn't ready to retire. 'In both life and football, failure is inevitable. You don't always win. You can, however, learn from that failure, pick yourself up with great enthusiasm, and place yourself in the arena again. And that's right where you will find me. Because I know I still have more to prove,' Brady wrote.

Footballguys view: Brady wants to play until he's 45-years old and he's 42 right now (turning 43 later this year). He's going to be a free agent and cannot be franchise-tagged by the Patriots. There is a chance we see him playing elsewhere in 2020, but one thing seems certain -- Brady will keep playing next season.

  Patriots | Tom Brady played with injury    Mon Jan 6, 03:52 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (foot) played in the Wild Card playoff game despite suffering a foot injury at some point in December.

Footballguys view: Brady didn't look like himself in the Wild Card game, and perhaps this foot issue has something to do with it. He's an unrestricted free agent in 2020 and his time with the Patriots may be coming to a close.

  Patriots | Tom Brady could leave New England    Mon Jan 6, 11:03 AM

New England Patriots impending free-agent QB Tom Brady returning to the Patriots is far from a guarantee, according to ESPN's Jeff Darlington.

Footballguys view: Brady is set to be an unrestricted free agent later this year and he has no plans of retiring. He cannot be franchise-tagged by the Patriots so barring a new deal with New England, Brady will be on the open market. Many are having fun speculating on where Brady could end up with the Chargers or the Raiders perhaps being the most popular potential destinations for the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

  Patriots | Tom Brady not planning to retire    Sun Jan 5, 12:27 AM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady said retirement is 'pretty unlikely' following a loss to the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round Saturday, Jan. 4.

Footballguys view: Brady wants to play until he's 45-years old and he turns 43 later this year. He is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and he cannot be franchise tagged by the Patriots. If he does continue playing, it may not be with the Pats. It's going to be incredibly odd if he ends up with another team in 2020.

  Patriots | New England falls in playoff opener    Sat Jan 4, 11:46 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 20 of his 37 passes for 209 yards and an interception in a 20-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round Saturday, Jan. 4. RB Sony Michel rushed 14 times for 61 yards and caught two passes for nine yards, and RB James White caught five passes for 62 yards and rushed once for 14 yards. WR Julian Edelman caught three of his five passes for 30 yards and rushed twice for 12 yards and a touchdown, WR N'Keal Harry caught two of his seven targets for 21 yards, WR Mohamed Sanu caught one of his four passes for 11 yards, WR Phillip Dorsett caught one of his four targets for six yards, and TE Benjamin Watson caught three of his four targets for 38 yards. LB Dont'a Hightower led the team with nine tackles, including eight solo stops and one tackle for loss.

  Patriots | Week 17 final stats for Patriots    Sun Dec 29, 04:17 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 16-of-29 passes for 221 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in an upset loss at home to the Miami Dolphins. RB Sony Michel led the way with 74 rushing yards on 18 attempts while scoring a touchdown, with RB Rex Burkhead adding 48 yards on six carries. WR Phillip Dorsett had a team-high 50 yards on one grab with four targets, while LB/FB Elandon Roberts had a 38-yard touchdown on his only touch. RB James White also added a score while finishing with three catches for 33 yards, and WR Julian Edelman managed three grabs for 26 yards on seven targets. WR N'Keal Harry also had three catches for 29 yards on seven targets while running once for nine yards.

Footballguys view: The Patriots offense continued to disappoint, coming up short in a game against one of the worst defenses in the league. Michel was serviceable for fantasy today and that's about it as linebacker/fullback Elandon Roberts caught one of the two Brady touchdowns. The Patriots fall to the third seed and will have to play next week and both Brady and the offense look mortal, and of course talk of Josh McDaniels as a head coaching prospect will be heard even though this was arguably the biggest struggle of his Patriots career.

  Patriots | Tom Brady has clean performance    Sat Dec 21, 07:38 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 26 of 33 pass attempts for 271 yards and one touchdown Saturday, Dec. 21, against the Buffalo Bills. He added four rushing yards.

Footballguys view: Brady had one of his best games of the year playing quality wise but it was still a so-so game for fantasy. He'll play Miami next week in a game they still need to clinch a bye if the Chiefs beat the Bears.

  Patriots | Tom Brady tosses pair of touchdowns    Sun Dec 15, 05:16 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady completed 15-of-29 passes for 128 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Brady had a touchdown pass dropped by Sony Michel and missed Mohamed Sanu later, but the reality is still that he is not worth considering as a fantasy quarterback for the finals against Buffalo on Saturday.

Footballguys view: Brady's numbers were good because of the two rushing scores, but he could have had another interception and wasn't that effective passing downfield against a weak Giants secondary. He's a QB1 against the Jets next week but his ceiling isn't as high as this result suggests.
