New England Patriots’ March madness has been great for the team, they have all but clinched the Super Bowl in consecutive months with news of Dont’a Hightower’s long-term deal yesterday. But, the question of the hour is how it will end for Tom Brady. The answer seems not pretty and it looks like his days at Patriots are numbered.
Brady signed through 2019, his cap hits escalates to $22million in 2018 for next two years. He turns 40 this August, the fairytale has Brady sticking around until little Benjamin graduates from Michigan in 2033. But, the real world sends us a message that Brady’s perish from the club looms larger and moves closer each passing day.
Things are a bit fluid elsewhere, Malcolm Butler is saying Patriots State Run Media that he wishes to be a Patriot player for life, but his hearts are set to playing for New Orleans. Butler will obviously bring in a substantial overhaul from New Orleans that leaves Belichick with many ways to shaft the NFL on draft day.
Garoppolo is expected to Tom Brady’s backup because Belichick wants this move to take place. The citizens though expects Brady to be the ultimate exception to the “Patriot Way.” The Patriots might take the $22million cap hit on Brady for one more year and franchise Jimmy Garoppolo for about $25million in 2018 and 2019. Garoppolo will surely not take a nice kind of deal in New England. So, Patriots may do the Brady thing once but surely not twice.
Getting rid of Brady by 2018 will be a challenge for Belichick but if he completes this challenge, he can show an example of how to build a winning team. Even if that includes watching the greatest player in NFL end his career with the Los Angeles Rams.
