Tom Brady currently believes he will enter free agency with the intention of playing somewhere other than the New England Patriots.

There is a belief, however, that the Patriots will have an opportunity to convince Brady to re-sign with the franchise. At this point, Brady is evaluating his options with the intention of leaving.

Brady and Bill Belichick have yet to schedule a meeting.

Brady cannot begin negotiating with other teams until the NFL's legal tampering period opens March 16. Brady turns 43 in August and threw for 4,057 yards with 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2019.
