Report: Giants and Colts not expected to pursue Tom Brady

If we know anything for certain about Tom Brady, it’s that he seems to like attention (while deliberately pretending not to).

Of course, that’s almost all we can be certain about regarding Tom Brady, as the Patriots quarterback has kept a tight loop around the information about his pending free agency.

But the general theme that has emerged is that he’s willing to listen to non-Patriots teams, and that created another wave of speculation about who those teams might be. And who they might not be.

According to Albert Breer of SI.com, the Giants and Colts will not be among the suitors if Brady leaves the Patriots in free agency.

The usual suspects remain the Titans, Chargers, Raiders, and a return to the Patriots, but the Colts and Giants never seemed as logical a destination.

The Giants chose Daniel Jones (we’ll say his name even if Joe Judge won’t) in the first round last year, and have enough other problems that adding Brady wouldn’t necessarily fix.

The Colts have been linked to Chargers free agent Philip Rivers, who would bring more kids but less drama.

It’s not a stretch to suggest that neither would have made sense to Brady either, in terms of proximity to contention. But this is what we’ll be dealing with for the next two-plus weeks, as the biggest domino in the NFL market continues to stand.

  1. Brady relishes the attention for sure. My guess is he has no intention whatsoever of leaving the Pats.

  2. TB12 was never going to the Colts. His history with them is to deep. Why would you want to work for the team that ratted you out?

  3. Aw, what a shame.
    Can you imagine how the Pats fans would react if Brady signed for either New York or Indianapolis?

    They’d probably swallow their tongues!

  4. Gotta love the media. They hound the guy, follow him everywhere, write story after story, then say he loves attention. I don’t remember him giving an interview or speaking on the topic at all up to this point.

  5. It is certain that Brady needing attention is far from a certainty. The Giants and Colts were never serious considerations. The Titans, Chargers, Raiders, Bears, Broncos, Bucs and even possibly the Cowboys or 9ers are possibilities, among others.

    Naw. Life would simply go on like it always does.
