Default Fansided.com Tom Brady rumors to be traded to Bucs, Texans

Fansided.com recently issued an article saying that there have been rumors to a Texans/Patriots trade involving Brady and some picks? Anyone heard anything.

That was some fan written speculation piece with as much credibility as a message board post.

There is NO way that would happen during this season.

IF the Texans got him next offseason ala Peyton Manning I would be all for it as long as they wouldn't have to give up too much and also be in a position to draft the future guy. However that would be a dream scenario for the Texans and it's not going to happen.

As for the Bucs, Lovie Smith doesn't like good quarterbacks.

Can't think of a place that would be better for Brady in terms of weaponry among teams that need QBs. Arizona is pretty good, too.

Default Re: Fansided.com Tom Brady rumors to be traded to Bucs, Texans

Brady's 37 years old, and has a contract that runs through the 2017 season. His contract's already guaranteed for injury, and if he's on the roster for the final game of 2014, it's fully guaranteed for all three remaining years.

For that reason alone, I could see the Pats willing to do it. While there may be a component (and admittedly a decent size component) of his surrounding talent that's responsible for it, both his completion percentages and passer ratings have dropped steadily since the 2010 season.

At a completely guaranteed salary for the next three seasons, this isn't a gamble I'd like to see them take.

Except for one HUGE detail - that contract is way below market value.

Exactly. Brady at the end of his career for the next three years is better than anyone we can sign or draft. I would do it in a heartbeat. Don't think the rumors are real, but i would do it.

Brady is done. Must draft the franchise QB, please no more Ahman Green/Ed Reed "lets hope he still has it" mercy contracts and signings.

Yep. Brady has been way underpaid for a while, and that contract is actually do-able for us.

I dispute that. It WAS under market, but his Market value is falling rapidly or there would be 20 plus teams after him already and people can only imagine a few who aren't actually chomping at the bits. What is Staubachs value TODAY? Not much because his prime was well in his past. Brady is similar. Even though he is still playing, he is not the player who WAS below Market Value. He is what he is now and in the near future and his contract is no longer even at Market Value, much less below it.

Pass without significant additional compensation from the Patriots. I'm tired of paying a retirement bonus for other teams fading stars.

I'm sure I read the same thing here when Peyton Manning became available.

I know I did not expect him to recover to this level. But in my opinion, he beat the odds and those that recognized the risk were right to do so.

Default Re: Fansided.com Tom Brady rumors to be traded to Bucs, Texans

it depends on what the asking price would be.

And can you think of a better mentor for Savage in O'Brien's system?
I can't.

I ain't saying it's going to happen or even that it's a possibility
but if the Pats made a call to O'Brien/Smith, if I were them, I'd at least entertain the call

Brady isn't done. It's more Coach Belichick than is done that Brady is. Belichick has been ignoring the WR position for a long time, kind of what Kubiak was doing with the running back situation here until he found Foster. I think Belichick believes he can plug any WR into his system and think it will produce great results.
Yeah Brady is getting older but I still think he's better than anything out there right now. Question. Who would you take right now: Brady or Fitzpatrick?
