Tom Brady reportedly cleaned out Gillette Stadium suite, moved out of Massachusetts
Tom Brady is scheduled to become a free agent for the first time in his NFL career in just two short months, and the quarterback continues to make decisions in his personal life that have New England Patriots fans panicking.
WEEI’s Greg Hill, who conducted a weekly interview with Brady during the season, shared some interesting information on Tuesday morning about Brady seemingly distancing himself from the Patriots. According to Hill, the suite Brady’s family typically occupies at Gillette Stadium has been “cleaned out in a way that perhaps it has never been cleaned out before.” The 42-year-old has also reportedly already moved out of his home in Brookline, Mass.
Brady and his wife Gisele listed their Brookline home for sale back in October and have since purchased a home in Greenwich, Conn. Hill was told the Brady family has already moved into the new home. Brady urged people several months ago to not read too much into his real estate transactions, but nothing has transpired since then to convince fans in New England that he will be back with the Patriots next season.
In fact, there have been more signs that Brady is setting the stage to leave the Pats. In addition to selling his Massachusetts mansion, the six-time Super Bowl champion also recently stepped down as the regional ambassador of his favorite local charity.
Things can change in a hurry, and Brady could be making all of these moves for posturing. He could also be preparing for retirement, even if retirement is still a few years away. Brady has so much money at this point that he could take a private helicopter to Gillette Stadium for work every day, so the location of his primary residence doesn’t mean a whole lot.
While some think Brady is trying to finally get a market value contract from the Patriots, we believe there is a different reason he is playing hardball with the team. Does he really want to start fresh somewhere at this point in his carer? It seems highly unlikely, but it’s a story we have seen in the NFL before.
