New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady sparked some controversy last week when he and Gisele Bundchen listed their Brookline, MA home for sale. The listing made many believe that Brady's time in New England may be coming to an end much earlier than expected.
Brady responded to the rumors on WEEI's "Greg Hill Show" Monday morning when asked if Patriots fans should read into Brady listing his house.
“I certainly hope not. You shouldn’t read into anything,” Brady said. "I think it takes a long time to sell a house. My house is a little bit of an expensive one, so it doesn’t fly off the shelf in a couple weeks. I think I’m at a point in my life where there’s a lot of considerations that go into playing. I have a very busy professional life, I have a very busy personal life. Any decision that’s made has to consider everything.
“I’m certainly at a place where I’ve been in the same place for a long time, and I love playing for the Patriots. I have such a great relationship with Mr. Kraft, coach Belichick and our team. We’ll just worry about that when that happens. This isn’t the time to worry about it.”
Brady's response doesn't exactly put the controversy to rest. If he were to leave New England in 2020, now would be the perfect time to list his house.
One can't expect Brady to go into more detail than he did on WEEI, so this scenario will have to play out for us to see what the 42-year-old's agenda really is.
