What an absolutely wild announcement. I thought most of us assumed reports about Brady leaving were just a game of chicken between him and the Pats.

I guess not. I guess the man with six Super Bowl rings wanted out, and that’s exactly what he got. Brady will now suit up in 2020 for a different team.

I’m truly at a loss for words right now. What a stunning turn of events. The question now is where will he go.

The most obvious answers are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Los Angeles Chargers. I don’t see too many other options out there for Brady.
