Tom Brady Is Selling House After New Contract

Billy Woods | August 12th, 2019

During the NBA free agency cycle this offseason, many speculated that forward Kawhi Leonard would join the Los Angeles Lakers, due to his buying of property in the Los Angeles area. Those speculations were half-right, as Leonard signed with the in-arena rivals, the Los Angeles Clippers.

The point is, one can speculate about a player’s future moves based on the intimate details of their personal life, such as buying and/or selling of real estate and where their children are enrolled in school at. It has been reported that after the signing of his new contract extension, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady placed his house on the market.

Brady recently celebrated his 42nd birthday before starting his 20th season as an NFL quarterback. If Brady is able to remain healthy and start all 16 games, he would become the oldest quarterback ever to start a full season. Brady is still optimistic about his ability to play in the NFL until he is 45. Even though new NFL rules favor the quarterback, playing until the age of 45 is highly unlikely. Although Brady has paved the way for quarterbacks to play longer, a mid-40s aged quarterback would be a hazard to any team putting the trust of their season into.

Brady placing his house on the market leads to speculation of him potentially leaving the Patriots, especially since his extension only keeps him under contract through the 2019 season. The image of Brady in another NFL jersey that isn’t the Patriots is a weird thought, and Brady agrees. On a recent talk show, Brady expressed his interest to stay on the team until he retires at the age of 45. He also talked about why his house was put on the open market. Brady states that his house is expensive and will take time to sell and in no way reflects a decision to leave the Patriots.

“You shouldn’t read into anything,” said Brady, “I think it takes a long time to sell a house.” With his recent statements, Boston sports fans can breath a sigh of relief for now.
