There are no teams out there that are just a QB away from contending, I just don't see a good fit for him anywhere. What he goes to Chargers and they maybe improve marginally? He should just retire while he's on top. No reason to muck it all up now.
San Francisco 49ers (I don't believe in Jimmy G)
Tennessee Titans (potentially pending on Ryan Tannehill situation)
Indianapolis Colts (strong offensive line, Marlon Mack at RB, T.Y. Hilton at WR & solid TE play)
There are a couple teams out there that could use the championship pedigree experience in Brady to win at least one Superbowl with a great supporting cast around him.
1. 49ers would be morons to do that. They already gave Jimmy a big money contract, so they are going to be paying both him AND Brady, when they already know Jimmy is the future? Can they afford that? Jimmy got them to the superbowl coming off a major injury, he's not going anywhere and he's not taking a #2 role to Brady again.
2. Titans also make no sense. Tannehill had the best year of his career by far, they aren't going to just let him go in favor of a 43 year old declining QB unless Ryan really doesn't want to be there, but I doubt it considering their solid oline and top notch running game. It's a perfect situation for him.
3. I could see the Colts doing it. That's one of the few places that makes sense, IMO. I don't know what they are planning with Brisset, but Brady could be a one year stop gap for them, but again why not stick with the young guy?
I honestly think Brady is planning to go back to the Patriots and is currently trying to drive up the price by exploring the FA market. NE does owe him for taking discounts for over a decade and winning them super bowls. I think he either goes back or retires.
