Tom Brady: 5 Possible Destinations & 5 Possible Replacements

6 Superbowl Championships, 3 MVP Awards, and 14 Probowls...but is it enough to keep the legend?

Will the last ever pass from Tom Brady in a Patriot uniform be a pick-six? He's said he wants to play until he's 45, but with the loss to the Titans it feels like the end of an era.

He's set to become a free agent, and he hasn't seemed very satisfied with the direction the team has gone with regards to weapons at his disposal. On Saturday, there was no Antonio Brown, Gronk, or Josh Gordon to play Robin to Brady's Batman. Maybe time is up for the Brady-Belichick dynasty.

Here's where we go into unknown territory. Would Brady even want to play for another team, another coach, another city? Do the Patriots begin a re-build, or does Belichick replace another missing part and keep the engine running as he's done with every other position? New England has the 23rd pick in the first round. Will that be high enough to secure one of the 2nd-tier quarterbacks that will be available after Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa are taken?

While we delve into the unknown, it's very likely the two sides are already working on the details to keep Tom in town. But let's have some fun anyway...
