It has been a whirlwind of emotions all offseason for the New England Patriots as it pertains to quarterback Tom Brady and where he will play next season.

For the first time in 20 years, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will find himself a free agent and has the opportunity to play next season with a team other than the team that he won six Super Bowls with.

It has been a strange offseason for the Patriots fans and media members covering the team, as we all have been speculating where the 42-year-old former league MVP will be playing this fall.

Is he going to take his talents to the West Coast to play for the Chargers or the Raiders? Will he go down south to play for the Buccaneers? Could he head to Texas and play under center for the Cowboys?

No one knows exactly what is going through the mind of the Greatest Quarterback of All Time, but all we know is that he is heading to free agency next week for the first time in his illustrious career.

I have been silent so far this offseason as to where I think Brady will go, but that doesn’t mean that other writers and radio show analysts haven’t abundantly discussed Brady’s destination. Many think he is going to pack his bags and head somewhere else just to prove that he can win without Bill Belichick.

Then there are the others that think he could retire, but if you have been following Brady’s social media or any interview where that question has come up, he always states he wants to play until he’s 45 at least. Seeing how he is turning 43 this August, that means he has three more years left before he hangs up his uniform and waits for the call to the Hall of Fame.

Before we start talking about the Hall of Fame, here is my opinion about where Tom Brady will be playing next season. After careful consideration and using my brain, I am 100% sure that Tom Brady will be in a New England Patriots uniform in 2020.

Here are 4 reasons — or “4 Downs” — on why I think he will not leave New England.
