The smoke-filled free agency future of Tom Brady continues to fire up the internet and talk radio.

Listen to your team news NOW.

There have been plenty of reports that TB12 will indeed test free agency and could very well move on to a new team after two decades in New England.

ESPN ramped up that rhetoric on Thursday with a report that it’s “more likely than not” that Brady will move on from the Patriots this offseason.

“Often times when I talk about Tom Brady leaving New England - ‘He’s not leaving New England’ - because people can’t wrap their head around the idea of him leaving. It’s time to wrap our heads around the idea of Tom Brady leaving New England because it is a very real, VERY real possibility,” ESPN’s Jeff Darlington told the Golic and Wingo Show. “It’s more likely than not that Tom Brady leaves the Patriots. That’s not saying that he couldn’t still stay with the Patriots, but it is more likely than not that he leaves the Patriots.”

Brady is set to have his contract void and hit free agency for the first time in his career on March 18. He negotiated into his reworked deal last summer that the Patriots could not use their franchise tag or transition tag him this offseason.
