Legend Brady announces he’s leaving the Patriots

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The New England Patriots will have a new quarterback under center in 2020. This will be the first time in nearly 20-years when Drew Bledsoe was the starting quarterback.

Tom Brady announced that he is not re-signing with the Patriots. With their team now out of contention, Brady only has two suitors left.

Those are the Los Angeles Chargers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both teams are in need of a quarterback, as their previous quarterbacks are free agents.

“How do I possibly sum up the depth of my gratitude to Tom Brady for what he’s given us these past 20-years, or the sadness I feel knowing it’s ending?,” Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft said. “I love Tom like a son and I always will. He has brought so much happiness to me personally and to all of our fans. I had hoped this day would never come, but rather that Tom would end his remarkable career in a Patriots uniform after yet another Super Bowl Championship. Unfortunately, the two sides were unable to reach an agreement to allow that dream to become a reality. While sad today, the overwhelming feeling I have is appreciation for his countless contributions to our team and community.

“When Tom arrived in New England as an unheralded, sixth-round-pick, no one could have imagined the fairy tale story that would be written, the records that would be broken, or the joy he would bring to an entire history with six Super Bowl victories, nine AFC titles, and 17 Division Championships. He has been an exemplary teammate and leader. There simply will never be another Tom Brady . I now look forward to the day we can bring him back home to New England to celebrate his Patriots career, his endless achievements and his legacy as the greatest of all time. I love him very much.”

The legendary quarterback started every game for the Patriots in 2019. As a starter, he guided the team to a 12-4 regular season record.

He went 373 of 613 for 4,057 yards. He also had 24 touchdown passes and eight interceptions.

In his Hall of Fame-worthy career, he has appeared in 285 games, including 283 starts. He has gone 219-64 during the regular season.

Brady has gone 6,377 of 9,988 for 74,571 yards. He has thrown 541 touchdowns and 179 interceptions.

He only missed one full season during his historic career due to injury. In the first game of the 2008 season, Brady suffered a season-ending injury and Matt Cassel would guide the team throughout.
