So, here we are, in a world where Tom Brady's future with the Patriots is actually up in the air after spending 19 seasons in New England. The future Hall of Famer said he isn't going anywhere in a Super Bowl commercial, but that is only in reference to hanging up his cleats for good. Changing teams is definitely in the cards.
Could that be to the Giants?
It seems like an enormous stretch, especially after the team drafted Daniel Jones sixth overall and he took over for Eli Manning as the franchise quarterback after two games into the 2019 season. But, according to Boston radio host Scott Zolak, there's a possibility.
Talking on 98.5 Sports Hub's Zolak & Bertrand, Zolak said a source "not from the Brady side but very connected" told him not to "fall asleep" on the Giants are a potential landing spot for Brady.
Why? Well, the Joe Judge connection is certainly there. The Giants' new head coach has been with the Patriots since 2012 before taking this new position.
There is also the fact that the Giants have the weapons Brady so desperately wants the Patriots to acquire this offseason -- if he were to stay there, of course. Between Saquon Barkley in the backfield, multiple receivers in Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard to throw to, and a dynamic tight end that he's been missing in Evan Engram, Brady could have a field day on offense.
But it's extremely hard to see the Giants steering off course with Jones front and center as the team's new quarterback by bringing on Brady, no matter if he is the goat or not. The organization just let Manning sail off into the sunset, and with it, his lucrative deal is off the books.
Brady, even at 42 years old, would demand a big chunk of cap space the Giants can afford to use elsewhere on the roster.
So it's a stretch to put it very lightly. But who knows? Maybe Brady wants to see what it's like to play for the team that took two Super Bowl rings off his hand...
