Sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter that New England will not look into re-signing the wide receiver despite their recent struggles at the position. This comes after Brown apologized to the Patriots and other organizations/people for his antics following his release from the NFL. Yet, it seems like the Patriots rather struggle with their passing game than bring Brown back into the locker room.
This year, Brady has been taking his receivers to task for not being aggressive and making plays. It's not uncommon to see TB12 giving the core an earful on the sidelines at any point in a game this season. That was the case during the Patriots eventual loss to the Houston Texans last week.
Tom's frustration seems to have extended past the gridiron and into the front office. According to Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston, Brady is willing to leave the only franchise he's known if a "radical course change" doesn't take place in the next 90 days. Brady reportedly wants the organization to extend his contract for three more years, but the Patriots have been hesitant to move forward with the future Hall of Famer.
"The team had every chance the past few years to give Brady an extension that would allow him to play until he’s 45 – a goal he’s stated on numerous occasions," Curran claims. "They passed on it repeatedly."
The 42-year-old Brady is showing his age for the first time. Although the Patriots are 10-2, the team is anchored by their defense. Brady also has a passer rating of 88.3 which is his worst since 2013. Now, it is rumored that Brady is looking to be a member of the Los Angeles Chargers. This move will not only boost the franchise's image, but it will also allow him to return to his home state.
