New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

End of an Era; QB Tom Brady Says He’s Leaving the Patriots to Play Elsewhere

The glimmer of hope that Patriots fans were holding on to when it came to a return under center for quarterback Tom Brady can officially be extinguished.

The six-time Super Bowl winning quarterback announced early Wednesday that he is leaving the place he called “home” for 20 seasons, looking for a new challenge and a new team.

Brady put out a heartfelt message on Twitter about leaving New England and going out to find a new team to play for, something he’s never had to do before.

In a pair of statements posted on Twitter and Instagram, Brady first thanked his team and his coaches in a tweet labeled “FOREVER A PATRIOT.”

The beginning of NFL free agency is set for today at 4PM ET, and since 12PM ET on Monday, teams can legally “tamper” with pending free agents by contacting their agents.

Already a number big name players have announced they are leaving their teams to play elsewhere. Monday tight end Austin Hooper announced he was taking his talents from Atlanta to Cleveland.
