Player reactions to Tom Brady’s announcement that he’s leaving the Patriots
This is really happening.
Tom Brady is actually leaving the New England Patriots after 20 seasons, nine Super Bowl appearances and six rings.
The quarterback many consider the GOAT (greatest of all time) announced his intentions on social media Tuesday morning, and almost immediately players, current and former, started posting their reactions.
Since Brady indicated he had not decided where he will be continuing his Hall of Fame career, many of the players chimed in on where they thought his next stop should be. Some lobbied for their own teams, while some offered predictions.
And some from around the NFL just offered their appreciation. Even a local hockey team chimed in with an unlikely plea for Brady’s services.

@TomBrady good morning! Heard the news. Just making sure you are good? Asking for my friends..— cordarrelle patterson (@ceeflashpee84) March 17, 2020
Practice against Tom Brady everyday was like playing on the 92’ Dream Team. He brought that much intensity to the practice field. Which ever team he lands I’m sure he will continue his legacy of playing a great brand of football. #TB12 pic.twitter.com/Y6tKUOapIk— Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) March 17, 2020
