Tom Brady: Don’t read anything into putting my house on market

Shortly after Patriots quarterback Tom Brady agreed to a new contract with the team that provided a path to free agency in 2020, there was word that he put his Brookline house on the market for $39.5 million.

If one wanted to connect the two things, one could find that Brady was preparing for a future that didn’t have him spending time in Massachusetts. During an appearance on WEEI on Monday, Brady was asked if people should be making those kinds of inferences about his real estate maneuvering.

“I certainly hope not. You shouldn’t read into anything,” Brady said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. “I think it takes a long time to sell a house. My house is a little bit of an expensive one, so it doesn’t fly off the shelf in a couple weeks.”

When Brady signed the new pact, he said that having an uncertain future was part of the life of an NFL player. On Monday, he said there’s “this isn’t the time to worry” about 2020 because there are “a lot of considerations” professionally and personally that “go into playing.” For now, the focus is only on this season and keeping that frame of mind has worked pretty well for Brady over the years.

  1. The salty mountain of hate can’t wait for him to quit! But maybe he wants closer to Foxboro! Or is trying to keep Gisele happy with a Westchester mansion & helipad for her work in NY while he plays a few more years. Or it means nothing, but they do need a bigger trophy room.

  2. The more interesting question is where else would he want to raise his kids? He may want to be closer to his son and his own family on the west coast. His wife may want to live closer to her family and to places to revive a career she has held in abeyance.

    Boston is a short flight to New York, it’s the closest major city to Europe, but, it is far from Brazil and California.

  3. This is most likely for Gisselle, who wants to be closer to the NYC fashion center and her work.

  4. Obviously when a guy is saying the future is uncertain, refers questions to the owner, is actually slated to be a FA after this season for the first time in his career and has put his house on the market 7 months before he would be a FA, it is reasonable to expect that he may be elsewhere next season. I’m thinking Mike Vrabel might like his old friend to juice up the TN offense to go along with a good young D, and make a run or two.
