Tom Brady has a message for the media, and fans, as the Patriots continue their offseason of free agency.
As he heads into his second season with the Patriots, Brady said that he wants a little more than the team he left for.
“The biggest thing for me is I want to be a free agent,” Brady told reporters at the NFL owners meetings.
“I want to play somewhere else.
I’m not trying to do this to get money.
I want something good.
I don’t want to do that to make myself better.
That’s why I’m here.
I wanted to do it this year to be better, but it wasn’t enough.
I think I’m ready to go somewhere else.””
I want the opportunity to do something that is good,” Brady added.
“Hopefully I can be better than last year.”
Brady’s agent, Robert Kraft, and the Patriots are expected to be active for free agency, but with a new head coach and new ownership, it remains to be seen if the organization will be able to retain Brady.
The Patriots have already made a big push to re-sign quarterback Tom Brady, but the process has been slowed by Brady’s injury history.
In March, Brady suffered a torn ACL, MCL, MEL and MCL/fibula in his right knee.
Brady said at the time that he had been cleared to play, but he did not practice all season because of the injury.
In the past, Brady has struggled with the injury and hasn’t been able to make it through the season.
Brady’s agent did not return a request for comment.
With the Patriots likely looking to sign some free agents to replace Brady, the team could be looking to resign the quarterback.
It will be interesting to see if the Patriots make a move for Brady if the free agency period continues.
