TAMPA — Tom Brady is saying goodbye to the New England Patriots after 20 years.
Will he say hello to the Bucs?
In an emotional letter he posted on social media Tuesday, Brady announced he is not returning to the New England Patriots.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Los Angeles Chargers have reportedly offered him more than $30 million per year, and Bruce Arians made an “aggressive pitch” to Brady when the negotiating period opened Monday.
“Although my football journey will take place elsewhere, I appreciate everything that we have achieved and am grateful for our INCREDIBLE team accomplishments,” Brady said.
“I don’t know what my football future holds, but it is time for me to open a new stage for my life and career.”
ESPN’s Adam Schefter says Brady hasn’t made a decision on where he will play.
