Brady went to Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s house on Monday night.

“We had a positive, respectful discussion,” Kraft told ESPN. “It’s not the way I want it to end, but I want him to do what is in his best personal interest. After 20 years with us, he has earned that right. I love him like a son.”

Brady is expected to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Los Angeles Chargers. He officially hits free agency Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.
