There has been a lot of talk lately about the reasons why Brady decided to leave the Patriots after 20 years but this may have not been a quick decision.
In 2017 the 49ers approached the Patriots about a Jimmy Garoppolo trade but Bill Belichick had other ideas.
When the 49ers called, Belichick wanted to keep 25-year-old Jimmy G to keep his dynasty alive and instead offered Brady to go to his hometown team...but Patriots owner Robert Kraft shut the entire thing down.
When Tom found out he decided to turn his game all the way up and took the Patriots to 2 more Super Bowls but also reconstructed his contract so that he was able to become a free agent.
Something tells us that Brady has known for a long time he wasn't coming back to New England and if you want to play the blame game Belichick may be the winner.
