Report: Chargers expected to ‘make a push’ for Tom Brady

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Chargers, fresh off announcing Philip Rivers will not return in 2020, are reportedly in on soon-to-be free agent Tom Brady.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, summing up a huge day for the Chargers, reported live on air that the Bolts are expected to be among the teams that will “make a push” to sign Tom Brady this spring.

Interestingly, this news comes just hours after Brady himself had an eye-opening response to the news Rivers would not return to the Chargers next season. It also follows another report that indicates the New England Patriots actually want Brady to test free agency, rather than re-sign him first.

Needless to say, the Tom Brady sweepstakes appears to be getting off to a roaring start, and we still have another month to go before anyone can sign the six-time Super Bowl champ.
