Tom Brady’s pick for free agency almost looked very different.
The longtime New England Patriots signal caller is set to begin his first-ever season in a different jersey, as he prepares to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a Week 1 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. Brady shocked many with his decision to leave the Patriots after spending 20 seasons there and becoming the first player in NFL history to win six Super Bowls.
While the quarterback looks to turn the Bucs into Super Bowl contenders, Dan Patrick revealed this week that Brady almost ended up much farther north. The radio host revealed that Brady’s final three teams included the Los Angeles Chargers, which had been reported as a potential landing spot, and the Chicago Bears, which would have been more of a surprise.
