With all the talk about Tom Brady potentially leaving the Patriots after this season, there are two factors that could keep him in New England.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who’s mentioned on multiple occasions that Brady’s current circumstances suggest he’s ready to move on, writes in a report that Patriots owner Robert Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick are “two advantages” Brady can’t have anywhere else.
“Never underestimate Robert Kraft,” one source told Schefter.
While there have been questions about the strength of the relationship between Brady and Belichick, the two seem to be on the same page.
“I can tell you this: The working relationship with Tom and Bill (Belichick) right now is terrific,” the same source told Schefter.
Before “Monday Night Football,” Schefter pointed out how Brady and his trainer are selling their Massachusetts homes and Brady’s contract set to void after the season. Then on Thursday’s “Get Up!” Schefter said Brady returning to the Patriots is “the least likely option” regarding Brady’s future, with the other options being Brady playing elsewhere or retiring.
