Tom Brady spending time horseback riding ahead of free agency

The entire NFL world may be whipped up into a frenzy over how Tom Brady’s uncertain future, but it doesn’t look like the superstar quarterback is sweating the looming free-agency chaos all that much.

Brady, wife Gisele Bundchen, their family and some members of his inner circle — a group that includes controversial trainer, business partner and confidante, Alex Guerrero — currently are enjoying a much-needed and relaxing vacation.

Dispatches from social media — specifically Instagram stories shared by Brady and Gisele, both of whom are sporting TB12 caps — showcase the crew enjoying a casual stroll on horseback.

The Brady brood getaway immediately precedes his first foray into free agency in his two-decade NFL career. The only thing that would prevent such an outcome is if Brady were to shockingly re-up with the New England Patriots before March 18.

That’s obviously not going to happen, yet that does not mean Brady won’t be joining forces again with Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft in a collective pursuit of the trio’s seventh Super Bowl championship.

There has unsurprisingly been no shortage of speculation and conjecture about what comes next in Brady’s Hall of Fame career. Teams have emerged as potential suitors only to be later dismissed by a contradictory rumor. It’s been a whirlwind, to say the least.

The case can also be made that the social-media savvy Brady has even had a hand in ratcheting up the anticipation ahead of free agency. Either way, the matters at hand will all be resolved soon enough.

So, it makes sense for Brady to decompress ahead of such a potentially life-altering change in his career. And what better way to do so than with a little horseback riding in a sun-splashed setting?
