Tom Brady’s Odds of Returning to Patriots Not Likely

The Patriots have yet to contact Tom Brady’s camp about renegotiating his contract and the odds of a reunion are “not looking good,” according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

Even though there was a report the Patriots and Brady’s agent Don Yee were expected to meet at the NFL’s Scouting Combine, as of Thursday morning, the Patriots hadn’t “reached out” to the Brady camp about a meeting or anything else, the Herald has learned.

The two remaining years on Brady’s deal are set to void on March 18. As of now, Brady is prepared to hit free agency, and hear what other teams are prepared to offer. He agreed to a restructured contract in August that gave him a raise for the 2019 season and prohibited the Patriots from applying the franchise tag on him this offseason. Brady, 42, is one of several quarterbacks expected to hit the market in a year unusually flush with available veteran passers.

Yee, speaking with reporters Thursday prior to an agent’s meeting at the Indiana Convention Center, declined to share what discussions, if any, have been held with the Pats with regards to a new contract.
