Tom Brady’s future with the Patriots isn’t up to him, dad says

Not even Tom Brady Sr. knows what is going to happen in Foxborough this offseason.

The elder Brady said Thursday his son’s future with the New England Patriots is completely up to head coach Bill Belichick, according to the Boston Herald.

Tom Brady in August agreed to a restructured contract that could make him a free agent at the end of the season — making a divorce with the team an increasingly likely scenario.

The 42-year-old quarterback has spent his entire career playing under Belichick in New England.

Since 2000, Brady and Belichick have become the most successful quarterback-head coach duo in NFL history — winning six Super Bowls and 217 regular-season games together.

The star quarterback’s dad admitted it was hard to imagine Brady playing anywhere else, but added he was just speculating.

“You know, I don’t know. It’s hard for me to envision him playing somewhere else,” Brady Sr. told the Herald. “He wants to play. But ultimately, it’s Bill’s decision.

“Nobody really knows. Bill doesn’t tip his hand. There’s just been insinuations here and there. This is really kind of between those two. They got to decide what they want.”

Brady Sr. added his son could look for another team if Belichick decides to go in another direction, rather than retiring.

“If Bill says he doesn’t want Tommy, and Tommy wants to play, well, Joe Montana went to Kansas City … just because Bill decides he wants to move on, that won’t dictate Tommy’s future. I’m sure there are a few other teams in the league that would want him.”

The talk about Brady’s future comes after the Patriots’ 28-22 loss to the Texans on national television Monday.

Both Brady and the 10-2 Patriots’ offense have appeared sluggish at times this season. He has thrown 18 touchdowns and six interceptions with a 61.1% completion percentage, his lowest since 2013.

Brady has said he hopes to play until he’s 45 years old.
