Tom Brady rumors already are swirling with the NFL’s legal tampering period underway, and one league insider thinks he knows what’s going on with 42-year-old.
During an appearance Monday on the Barstool Sports podcast “Pardon My Take,” NFL insider Jay Glazer claimed the New England Patriots quarterback doesn’t know what he’s going to do in free agency, but believes the signal-caller is “getting used.”
“That’s the whole thing, this is the craziest time,” Glazer said. “I don’t think Brady knows where Brady’s going because there are also teams, man there is so much this is almost like draft time, where teams are, a team like the Titans, who may want to re-sign Ryan Tannehill, but they have Brady looking over them.
“There’s also other teams that I’m not going to mention, who are using it for their own guys, who you wouldn’t even think about. (They’re) going ‘Well, we want to kind of re-sign you. We want to do this, but if not, Brady’s out there.’ So, he’s getting used in that way. Brady’s getting used.”
As you likely know by now, Tannehill has re-signed with the Titans, which ultimately takes Brady out of the running in Tennessee. But there are teams who have made a run at the six-time Super Bowl champion starting Monday, and that seems to be among the biggest takeaways for Glazer.
“There are a lot of teams who’s Brady using, there’s a lot of teams Patriots are using. But here’s the bottom line, this is the craziest (expletive) we’ve ever talked about,” Glazer said. “It’s mind-boggling, it’s absolutely freaking mind-boggling.”
Free agency officially begins Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.
