New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady reportedly talked on the phone Tuesday to discuss Brady’s upcoming free agency, per NBC Sports Boston’s Tom E. Curran.
The talks were not particularly productive, per the report, as Belichick entered the approach that Brady is still under contract and will remain with the Patriots.
The Patriots might be feeling the pressure with eight NFL teams interested in Brady and several of them reportedly prepared to make him a contract offer. In fact, the Las Vegas Raiders reportedly plan to offer him a two-year, $60 million contract when free agency begins.
If Belichick doesn’t make the right offer to convince Brady to return, it seems increasingly likely that the future Hall of Famers will part ways this offseason.
