Report: Tom Brady’s future with Patriots a ‘wait-and-see’ situation
Tom Brady conceivably could be playing his final game with the New England Patriots on Sunday, and sources say that there is no clarity to how both the team and the quarterback are dealing with the uncertain situation.
Reporting from Patriots headquarters, ESPN NFL reporter Mike Reiss indicated during an appearance Friday on “Get Up!” that a source said the involved parties as taking a “wait-and-see” approach to how things may play out once the Patriots’ season concludes.
Further, Reiss adds in his report that there have been no contract talks between the Brady and the Patriots since the parties reworked his deal ahead of the season.

Brady is set to become a free agent for the first time in his two-decade-long NFL career in the coming months. While nothing is off the table, many NFL insiders believe Brady’s legendary tenure with the Patriots will end this coming offseason.
That said, there certainly remains a chance that Brady is back with the Patriots next season despite all the conjecture suggesting otherwise. Brady said he was taking things “day-by-day” when it comes to his future, and later declined to set any limits on how long his NFL career would continue.
Both Brady and Bill Belichick declined to get sentimental or nostalgic about the situation when asked about the situation this week, instead taking a business-as-usual approach to the Patriots’ AFC Wild Card Round showdown with the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
