One of the biggest offseason storylines in the NFL has been the possible landing spots for Tom Brady. After leaving his future with the New England Patriots up in the air after his playoff loss against the Tennessee Titans, there has been wild speculation over who will win his services for at least one season.
One market that will be understandably sensitive to any Tom Brady news is Boston sports media. After Ian Rapaport reported that teams not named the Patriots were in the hunt for Brady, Boston radio host Lou Merloni voiced his doubts.
The report that Merloni is referring to states that Brady is still in the Patriots plans for 2020. However, it would be short-sighted to simply dismiss any report that Brady is speaking to other teams. Brady is going to be a hot commodity this offseason, and there is a significant possibility he isn't a member of the Patriots come Sept.
Should TB12 depart from the only team he's ever known, it will be difficult to process for some in Boston sports media. It's understandable that they are going to be skeptical of every single report until we get final confirmation.
