It was opening night for the Super Bowl last night and there was plenty of talk about Tom Brady and his future. Tom E. Curran has Jimmy Garoppolo curious about where Brady will end up and that it's hard for him to picture the quarterback in any other uniform other than the Patriots.
Garoppolo also passed along Brady's text wishing him good luck in the Super Bowl. NBC Sports colleague Phil Perry spoke with Charlie Weis who thinks Brady will at least test out the market to see what opportunities might be out there.
Meanwhile, Brady's childhood idol Joe Montana, who knows a thing or two about finishing a career with a different team, thinks Brady should stick with the Patriots. Perry also spoke with Emmanuel Sanders who reflected on the Patriots pursuit of him over the years and posits that he might've been a Hall of Famer had he ended up in New England in 2013.
Wes Welker however doesn't really care where Brady ends up.
Curran also talks with Jacoby Brissett who recounts getting traded by the Patriots to the Colts.
In non-Brady news, Mike Reiss has J.C. Jackson as one Patriot who stepped up for the team in 2019. A second-year corner, Jackson cut down on penalties and will be in the mix to start opposite Stephon Gilmore in 2020.
