Last night the Kansas City Chiefs ended their 50-year Super Bowl drought with a 31-20 victory over the San Fransisco 49ers. But with that victory, the 2020 NFL season is officially over. That means it is now officially the offseason where there are trades, free agency, and, last but not least, the NFL Draft. All three happen after every single season, but this offseason feels very different from the rest. Why? Because New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a free agent for the first time in his storied career.
First off, let me say I do expect Brady to be back with the Pats. It just makes the most sense for a 42-year-old quarterback to stay where he has been the entirety of his career. And yes, the money is definitely a factor when it comes to Brady’s decision, but if NFL Network’s Ian Raporport is correct, New England is willing to shell out a pretty penny for number 12.

Still, there is a chance that Brady ends up playing elsewhere. How big of a chance? Right now ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss has the chances of Brady leaving at 20%, but as we all know that could change very quickly.
The two reported teams with the most interest appear to be the now Las Vegas Raiders and the Los Angeles Chargers. And like I said I don’t see Brady going to either team, but when you take a close look at it the Chargers are a perfect fit for what Brady wants.
For starters, Los Angeles already has tons of weapons for the quarterback, something Brady desperately wanted this season. Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Hunter Henry, and Austin Ekeler are all excellent talents that match up with nearly any skill position group in the NFL. They also have plenty of talent on the defensive side of the ball, so if they brought Brady in you’d have to think about them as immediate contenders.
Secondly, Los Angeles is much closer to his family in San Francisco than New England is (obviously). Does he want to head west and spend more time with his parents? Possibly.
Lastly, the Chargers have the money. I know that this probably is not the sticking point for Tom’s free agency plan, but it is worth mentioning. Because if Brady can 1. get paid, 2. go home to his family at the end of his career, and 3. play for a championship contender, why wouldn’t he sign? Just something to think about.
I think unless the #Patriots give Tom Brady ALL the weapons he could potentially want he’s out of there.. Back on October 24th I introduced to the world that the LA #Chargers would be the perfect home for TB12 IF he decides to leave @GetUpESPN pic.twitter.com/j4vu4rnLF5
