New England Patriots QB Tom Brady appears unlikely to agree to a new contract with the team before free agency begins in mid-March, according to multiple sources. He is expected to take a methodical approach to determine where he will play next season, since this is the first time in his career that he will be eligible for free agency.
Huddle Up: Brady, who will turn 43 in August, should be viewed as a QB2 in most fantasy formats at this stage of his career but if he lands in the right situation, he's worthy of consideration as a low-end QB1 in next year's drafts.

New England Patriots impending free-agent QB Tom Brady hinted on his Instagram that he wasn't ready to retire. 'In both life and football, failure is inevitable. You don't always win. You can, however, learn from that failure, pick yourself up with great enthusiasm, and place yourself in the arena again.
And that's right where you will find me. Because I know I still have more to prove,' Brady wrote.
Huddle Up: It would have been a shocker if TB12 hung them up after the Wild Card loss to the Tennessee Titans. The question that remains is: Where will he play? Who will he be coached and surrounded by? In a perfect situation, Brady will be a low-end QB1 in fantasy. However, it's more likely he'll be a QB2.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (foot) played in the Wild Card playoff game despite suffering a foot injury at some point in December.
Huddle Up: Brady still posted decent numbers this season despite limited options in the passing game and finished with 4,057 yards and 24 touchdowns. It is not known who Brady will play for next season, but he can be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

New England Patriots impending free-agent QB Tom Brady returning to the Patriots is far from a guarantee, according to ESPN's Jeff Darlington.
Huddle Up: The San Francisco 49ers have been kicked around by conspiracy theorists, but the soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders might also be an option. The Patriots don't have second or fifth-round picks next year, and their roster isn't optimal. Brady's relationship with head coach Bill Belichick is also rocky, but Belichick might be more likely to leave than Brady. Either way, this figures to be the one of the most hyped free agencies in a while. Brady is probably a QB2 at this stage of his career, but in the right setup, he could be a low-end QB1 come draft time.

Huddle Up: Although Brady indicated he wants to keep playing, there are questions as to whether he will continue his career in New England. At this stage in his career, he's probably no more than a QB2 no matter where he plays in 2020.
