Tom Brady ‘open minded’ about playing elsewhere as 2020 free agency approaches

Published

This couldn’t be possible right?

You would be laughed at if you asked a year ago whether Tom Brady would ever play for another franchise other than the New England Patriots. But fast forward to January 2020, and the idea no longer seems too farfetched.

The 40-year old is set to become an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career on March 18th. Despite being a lifelong Patriot, he has vowed to keep all of his options open during the whole ordeal.

“I’m open-minded about the process,” said Brady when asked about the possibility of signing elsewhere.

“At the same time, I love playing football and I want to continue to play and do a great job. I’m looking forward to what’s ahead. Whatever the future may bring, I’ll embrace it with open arms.”

Brady has won six Super Bowls, four Super Bowl MVPs, and all but cemented his legacy at the best quarterback in NFL history during his 20 seasons and 285 games with the Patriots.

NFL coming to Germany?

Published

The NFL looks poised to expand their reach in the European market beyond the United Kingdom.

The league announced that a German city will host an NFL regular season game in the near future. They are hoping for next season, but 2023 remains a more realistic goal due to scheduling conflicts that result from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The biding war to host an NFL contest is down to three German cities; Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich.

“After an initial period in which expressions of interest were received from multiple cities, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich have been invited to proceed to the `candidate phase’ of the process,” the league said in a statement. “Those cities will now participate in deeper conversations about staging games in Germany.” said the NFL in the statement.

More to come.

After being unable to work out a contract restructure, the New England Patriots have decided to move on from Stephen Gilmore.

The team announced that they have cut the four-time pro bowler before he
was eligible to come off the Physically Unable to Perform List after Week 6.

“It is with mixed emotions that I announce my goodbye to this great fan base,” said Gilmore.

“We enjoyed so much success together and you have been an incredible inspiration for my achievements.”

The 31-year old had spent the past four season with the franchise, posting 185 combined tackles, 52 passes defended, 11 interceptions, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries over a span of 56 combined games.

Jaguars trade cornerback CJ Henderson to Panthers

CJ Henderson’s tenure in Jacksonville did not last long.

Just over a year after picking him 9th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars have dealt the sophomore cornerback and a 2022 fifth round draft pick to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for tight end Dan Arnold and a 2022 third round selection.

Henderson, who many experts thought was picked way too high in the 2020 Draft, ended up playing in just 10 combined games for the Jaguars. He recorded just 44 combined tackles, six passes defended, one forced fumble and one interception during that span.

The Jaguars have had a disappointing start to 2021, going 0-3 despite a shiny new head coach and the first overall pick as their new starting quarterback.
