Giants named as potential Tom Brady suitor

We’ve heard several teams mentioned as potential suitors for soon-to-be free agent quarterback Tom Brady, but we hadn’t heard the Giants, until now.

Michael Giardi of NFL Network reported that the Giants have been named by sources at the Scouting Combine as a potential team with interest in Brady, along with the Titans and Raiders, whose potential interest has been discussed in the past.

The Giants would be a surprise. General Manager Dave Gettleman spent the sixth overall pick in the draft on quarterback Daniel Jones last year, and the team has indicated that Jones is the quarterback of both the present and of the future.

On the other hand, new Giants head coach Joe Judge wouldn’t commit to Jones as his starter when asked about the depth chart this week. And Judge, who spent the last eight years in New England, presumably thinks highly of Brady.

The Giants also have plenty of cap space, about $62 million, so they could make Brady a lucrative offer.

Would Brady want to go to the Giants? If he wants to win, it’s hard to see why he would. Then again, it’s possible that the Giants could persuade him that they’re closer to contending than they look. And it’s also possible that Brady and his wife, model Gisele Bundchen, are thinking about post-football opportunities that could be enhanced by moving to America’s biggest market.

So while this one feels farfetched, it’s worth at least considering the possibility that Brady could play for the franchise that twice beat him in the Super Bowl.

  1. this one makes no sense. also why would judge take this job if jones wasnt his starter? going to spend another draft pick on a qb? signing rivers, tannehill, bridgewater, or winston wouldnt result in enough wins to keep the giants from getting a new coach in 3 years.

  2. The New York/Boston rivalry would explode!
    Look at the Yanks/BoSox…
    Every time a Red Sox player signs with the Yankees, the Boston fans lose their minds.
    NY plays in Fenway, and former BoSox player gets booed mercilessly.
    Would love to see that if/when Giant QB Brady goes back to Foxboro! LOL

  3. Giardi is not that dumb to actually believe that.

    Anyone could win that division but not enough talent in NYG (save Barkley) to make a run.

    TB is not going out in one and done. New England and Tampa are the two best places for him to play.

  4. Er, I’ve said it, right here in PFT comments! I think Brady’s staying put, but if he left then NY or LA make most sense in terms of Gisele (and his) other business, high-life and glamor. And y’all thinking in terms of 1-2yrs, but Brady is prob thinking (rightly or wrongly) up to 3yrs. So a team has just enough time to re-configure for one run.

    Brady must be thinking 3yrs and Belichick thinking 1yr, as that’s the ONLY reason I can see for demurring, seeing as Brady’s never been about the money and Pats are still a contender.

  5. Cowboys, Raiders, Bucs, Titans, Giants, Chargers, 49ers, Pats…..who am I missing?

    March 18 cant come soon enough

  6. It makes TONS of sense for egos as large as Giselle’s and Tom’s. This is the point.

    Their O Line is horrible, their D is horrible, they have a rookie coach, etc.

    There’s no question it’s an option for Ego Tom because of Judge, NY and its business oppos, and their cap space for salar. Rational, reined-in ego Tom that BB has tried to keep reined-in version of Tom Brady, absolutely not, based on what I just typed.

    By the time Judge has a chance to build something there, Brady will be done.

    But, is Brady so concerned about his TB12 brand, he thinks growing it NOW instead of just making it a post-career concentration, is that important?

    Obviously, the average, rational fan is probably wondering why on god’s green earth he is aying things like “i just want to win” and would even consider a team like the awful, rebuilding Giants right now with an inexperienced, new head coach.

    This is the issue for BB: Has Brady’s ego flown so far gone, that his TB12 brand become MORE important than committing to the team?

    If he does leave NE, this will be the answer.

    Thank you.

  7. Michael Giardi of NFL Network must be the most gullible guy on the planet. There’s is no way in hell signing Tom Brady is on the table, it would be the equivalent of Dave Gettleman firing himself for incompetence.

  8. The angle of trying to help their after football careers is ludicrous. Between the two of them, they already have more money than they could probably spend. I believe I read that Giselle still makes multi-millions off of her endeavors, even though she isn’t active modeling. So, why would it matter where she lived? And, everyone knows who Tom Brady is (at least anyone that would matter for any promotional moneys to be earned), so why would it matter where he played? Didn’t they already buy a new home in Florida? I don’t think they view any city as anything needed for after football success.

    All that said, can you imagine the “if you can’t beat em, join em” memes that would explode if TB signed with the Giants?

    Like, skipping OTAs, the only QB to do it. Will he skip OTAs this year? Is that in his contract offer right now as a stipulation, if he gets a contract?

    Of all coaches to think skipping OATs and being part fo the team while lying about WHY he skipped OTAs, can’t sit well with BB.

    BB taking off that headset after the Pick ^ vs Miami with time left in the half, left a huge mark on me. I know why he did that. Do you? Of course you don’t. You see #12 in silver panties and just gush regardless of how he plays in the game.

    You probably also will try to sell us that Buffalo was WORSE than Miami, so it makes sense NE lost to Miami and slapped Buffalo around the week before that. lol

    I love facts. You people are children in Brady Underoos who live in basements who also live in a fantasy world. Your opinions don’t have as much credence as adults’. It’s that simple.

    Have a nice day.

    You would think that, wouldn’t you? You have to understand ego and the world Giselle and Brady run in.

    When Scott Zolak is pumping this idea on 98.5 almost everyday, dropping clues left and right, I tend to lean towards believing it.

    It all aligns with the Facebook Doc, the book, the Guerrero weirdness, etc, etc.

    Tom Brady is a VERY strange person. He doesn’t eat pizza, he doesn’t drink coffee, he is like some kind of an obsessive half man/half robot. Again, strange.

    It’s part of what made him, but what if BB sees it everyday, building and building and building, while seeing it as undermining his GM and coaching work?

    Get it?

    If Brady is more focused on his brand, due to ego, then the whole reason why Brady has become the legend he is, is gone.

    His entire career was built on being one of the guys, a team player, not being a diva, etc.

    Well, what if he is not reachable now, by the coach who made him?

  12. To me, Brady to NY makes little sense. The weather is virtually the same. Cold, windy, snowy winters take a toll on old bones. LA winters are much better, and even Vegas make better sense. Fact, Tom and Giselle don’t need the money. They’re pretty much set for life financially. It could come down to how much the Patriots really want Brady back. I still think it will come down to the Patriots, Chargers, or Raiders. Long shots could be the Dolphins or Bucs.

  13. “I love facts.”

    ===========================

    Absence makes the heart grow fonder, I suppose.

    Brady obviously enjoys winning. And a nice side benefit of winning is it gives free promotion any of his other business ventures. He wants the Pats to improve the offensive talent to keep the run going. Everyone benefits if they do. If they don’t, Brady will utilize his collectively bargained right to explore the market. Nothing nefarious in that.

  14. Preposterous.

    It does not make sense on any level.

    GIANTS are not a Playoff team in 2020.

    GIANTS have the #6 pick in last year’s draft at QB, and he had a promising rookie season.

    GIANTS just moved on from a 39-Year old Franchise QB, they don;t need to move to a 42 Year old one.

    Brady needs to go where he can win now and there is no Young QB starting.

    Literally makes ZERO sense.

  15. Tom to NYG is a done deal according to my sources. Since they are very reliable I am going to take the leap of faith that this is true, and very high liklihood of happening in the next 7 days. GOAT choosing his supplements over Boston, have fun chewing on that bean-eaters, and BB needs to find a new QB stat.
