With the New England Patriots and Tom Brady still in contract limbo, it has all of us wondering what the future holds for the Hall of Fame QB.
The time passes by, the more likely there will be many suitors for the soon-to-be New England Patriots free agent quarterback Tom Brady.
Could the Tennessee Titans potentially take Brady away from the Patriots?
Unlike the Patriots, the Titans have more to offer Tom Brady right now.
A strong and dependable offensive line with a running back who just won the rushing title in Derrick Henry. Two great young wide receivers in AJ Brown and Adam Humphries. And possibly Brady’s favorite part: two solid contributors at tight end in Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith.
One of the main reasons the Titans are a great fit for Tom Brady is because they are a team who is actually in the market for another quarterback. With both Ryan Tannehill and Marcus Mariota set to become free agents this offseason, Brady could be the lead candidate for the vacant quarterback position.
The Titans will have around $54.5 million in additional cap space, and that figure could potentially increase with their 22 impending free agents that are currently still on the roster. If the decision is coming down to money for Brady, then the Titans are in a better situation than the Patriots to offer him the contract he’s looking for.
Brady understands the Titans are one of the more complete teams in the NFL. On the other side of the ball, the Titans run a solid 3-4 defense that finished 13th in the NFL with 43 sacks last season. They are led by a promising middle linebacker, Rashaan Evans, who tallied a team-high 111 tackles last season.
Tennessee also seems to be the team that former Patriots like to go to. We’ve seen Logan Ryan, Malcolm Butler, Dion Lewis, Josh Kline, Cody Hollister, and Jamil Douglas all end up on the Titans after their stints with the Patriots came to an end.
To top it all off, dating back to the days of playing in New England together, Tom Brady and Mike Vrabel have a great friendship and history – one that has resulted in three Super Bowl titles.
The Tennessee Titans made it all the way to the AFC Championship Game this season by defeating the New England Patriots. It’s hard to believe a team of this caliber wouldn’t be a better team with a future Hall of Fame quarterback like Tom Brady calling the shots under center.
It’s going to get very interesting to see what other teams are willing to offer Tom Brady for his services, in comparison to what the New England Patriots are going to be able to come up with.
