Tom Brady Watch: Where IS He Headed
Well, it’s that time of the year. It’s all about New Years resolutions, new beginnings and the annual Tom Brady watch: where is he headed? Is Tom bigger than football itself? This always seems to be top NFL scuttlebutt each January, especially if Tom is not in the Superbowl.
Potential Landing Spots for Tom
Early predictions, the Raiders, reuniting with former Pats offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

NFL.com reports this on our Tom Brady Watch about the Raiders:
The defense has its issues, the offensive line could use help and there’s a fair amount of suspicion here: Is McDaniels any good at this? Are the Raiders any better than the Bucs? Why mess around with the AFC West? But the combination of coach and scheme would allow Brady to hit the ground running. Among a flock of fringy possibilities, Vegas seems to stand alone as the club that wants him — and would be wanted in return.
The TOP 6 landing spots include:
Raiders, Dolphins, 49ers, Panthers, Titans and at #6 The Patriots. With the addition of Bill O’Brien, NFL.com says:
The return of Bill O’Brien as offensive coordinator, though, ticks New England up the list. Brady knows him well from the five years BOB served in Foxborough, including the season (2011) when he ran the offense. It seems they almost met again in 2022, as the Bucs were reportedly hoping to hire O’Brien if Byron Leftwich had snagged Jacksonville’s head coaching gig. It’s a selling point.
