Did the Patriots grant Tom Brady his free agency wish, because they knew his market would be virtually non-existent due to his age? Since the Super Bowl and the free agent talks began, it felt like the media was desperately hoping/trying to push this idea that Brady was the #1 target for a good portion of the league. This never made any sense to me. Why would teams that have young quarterbacks, who know their system, want to throw it all away for a 43 year old player? Brady had trouble getting on the same page with the players on the Patriots. How, in all of creation, will Brady instantly find a connection with a new coaching staff, offensive line, and receiving weapons? Will Brady have to learn a new system, or will the new team have to learn the system Brady has been playing in?
BTW, with all of the Coronavirus concerns and how it has effected sports, who's to say it won't spill into OTA's or minicamp. This could have a drastic impact on a new team signing Brady.
