Could Tom Brady End Up In Chicago For The 2020 NFL Season?
Let's face it Bears fan, you/we need a quarterback.
I can say "we" here right? Because you, I, we all need a new quarterback in Chicago.
Mitchell Trubisky is not the franchise quarterback we had all hoped he'd be. Enter Tom Brady, some would say the greatest quarterback of all time, and apparently available. Brady is an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career and could very well end up with a new team in 2020.
Could it be the Chicago Bears? Analysts have said the Bears were a decent quarterback away from being a Super Bowl contender. If you looked at the team in 2019, you would have noticed how they struggled offensively, and when that happens, fingers get pointed toward the quarterback as the reason.
Fair or not, Trubisky is the one taking most of the blame for the Bears mediocre season, though a good amount should also go to play-caller and head coach, Matt Nagy.
Anyway, Brady. Brady is 42 years old (43 before next season kicks off), just lost in the first round of the playoffs, and some believe he might be looking for a new team in 2020. If you think he's going to retire, he won't. Brady said he wanted to play football until he reached 45, and we should probably believe him.
So if Brady does the unthinkable and actually leaves the Patriots, where does he go?
Sporting News reports the Los Angeles Chargers, Indianapolis Colts, Las Vegas Raiders, Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Pittsburgh Steelers and you guessed it, the Chicago Bears as all great landing spots for Brady.
The Bears are stuck with Mitchell Trubisky for at least another season, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't jump at a chance to upgrade for 2020. Matt Nagy's offense could be a comfortable fit for Brady.
How comfortable would you be, Bears fan having Tom Brady on the beloved, at the ripe old age of 43? Do you think Brady has enough in the tank to lead the Bears to a Super Bowl?
