If the current trend continues, Tom Brady could no longer be a New England Patriot or a resident of Boston at the end of the 2020 season.
Only days after signing a new contract extension with the Patriots which allows the six-time Super Bowl champ to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2020 season, Tom Curran on NBC Sports Boston is reporting that Brady and his wife Gisele have put their Boston mansion on the market.
The couple listed the property for $39.5 million, according to the report.
Curran also reports, via the New York Post, that Brady and Bundchen are looking at properties in Greenwhich, Connecticut, and Alpine, New Jersey.
Speculation that Brady could retire from football, or, at the very least retire from the Patriots, got a shot in the arm this week after details about the Patriots quarterback’s contract extension became known.
The deal, originally reported as a two-year extension, gives Brady an $8 million raise for the 2019 season. However, most notably, the contract also precludes the Patriots from franchising or transition tagging Brady after this upcoming season.
Translation: Tom Brady will be a true free agent at the end of this season.
In addition, Brady also recently hired the high-profile WME talent agency to handle his non-football projects.
Of course, Brady could be merely setting himself up for a situation where he works out annual contracts with the Patriots, as opposed to signing multi-year deals.
However, considering the fact that Brady is now making plans to leave Boston, one could be forgiven for thinking that he may be seriously considering retirement.
