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.
