Tom Brady is no longer a member of the New England Patriots, which is painful news for Patriots fans.

I know, because I am one.

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

Brady to launch 199 Productions, work with 'Avengers: Endgame' directors

  Brady to launch 199 Productions, work with 'Avengers: Endgame' directors Tom Brady continues to forge his post-football career path as the sports world awaits the New England Patriots quarterback's free-agency decision. Brady is launching his own content company, 199 Productions, which will develop original projects including documentaries, feature films, and television shows, according to Variety's Mike Fleming Jr. The company's name is a nod to the pick the Patriots used to select Brady in the 2000 NFL Draft. Brady's first project is "Unseen Football," which he'll produce alongside "Avengers: Endgame" directors Joe and Anthony Russo.

Most importantly, Brady ’ s Patriots have won six Super Bowls. He was named the big game’ s most valuable player — Tom Brady (@ TomBrady ) March 17, 2020. Read original story Tom Brady Says He Is Lady Gaga Says She 'Didn't Like' Being Single: 'I Was Actually Having a Lot of Trouble with It '.

Tom Brady is LEAVING New England as the 42-year-old first-time free agent thanks fans, teammates, coach Bill Brady leaves the Patriots ranking second in NFL history in passing touchdowns (541) and 'Our team has always set a great standard in pro sports and I know it will continue to do just that.'

Before Brady took over as the starting QB in New England, the Patriots were just your average NFL franchise that made it to the Super Bowl every now and then but had many, many terrible years in which their games weren't even on local TV because they stunk so badly.

Now the franchise is a dynasty that has won six Super Bowls since 2001, which is insane.

And it's all because of Brady. And Bill Belichick.

The two legends are now broken up, set to go their own ways and take on new challenges that will endlessly be talked about and broken down by everyone who follows the sport of football.

It's something that has been debated for years - can Brady and Belichick still be good without each other? Oh, the drama.

By the way, the answer to that question is yes, yes they can. While this move hurts and came at a really crappy time in the world - and on St. Patrick's Day, of all days for Boston fans - it was the right thing to have happen.

Tom Brady and Patriots Reportedly Not Remotely Close to Deal as Free Agency Nears

  Tom Brady and Patriots Reportedly Not Remotely Close to Deal as Free Agency Nears Tom Brady is eligible to speak with NFL teams on Monday at noon, but it appears his market isn't as robust as originally thought. While earlier reports indicated that the San Francisco 49ers, as well as the Tennessee Titans, were not interested in the 42-year-old, Adam Schefter stated on Sunday night that Brady is far from a reunion with the Patriots as well. "Tom Brady does not have anything close to a deal in New England yet." @AdamSchefterWhile earlier reports indicated that the San Francisco 49ers, as well as the Tennessee Titans, were not interested in the 42-year-old, Adam Schefter stated on Sunday night that Brady is far from a reunion with the Patriots as well.

Tom Brady is out. After officially becoming a free agent and capitalizing on his uncertain future, the longtime New England Patriots quarterback announced Brady ' s statement seemed deliberately vague, and doesn't confirm whether he' s leaving football entirely. But it does paint "Pats Nation" in a

Tom Brady is officially leaving the Patriots -- you read that right . What does it all mean? The Buccaneers are talking like they might be ready to move on from him, which puts him in play, but it ' s pretty difficult to see Bill Belichick as willing to put up with Jameis' turnovers -- not to mention all of the

Brady has earned the right to go play somewhere new in the final few years of his career and see if he can make some new NFL history before calling it quits and maybe going back to eating like a normal person eats.

Tampa Bay is likely going to be his new home, which is perfect for Patriots fans. They can still root for No. 12 because he'll be in the NFC chasing down new dreams with some pretty good offensive weapons on his side. If he came back to the Patriots he'd face another year where only going to a Super Bowl would be considered a success.

The grind of being held to such high standards has to wear on you, even though it is a product of the incredible success that he's had in the past. Brady often didn't look like he was having fun last season as the offense struggled and the injuries on the offensive side of the ball mounted.

He still went 12-4 but the year was considered a bad one because of how it ended and because of how Brady struggled to be the Brady everyone has seen for so many years. Now he gets to go to Tampa where a new set of fans will be pumped to watch as he attempts to go to another Super Bowl, even at the age of 43.

Tom Brady ' s announcement Tuesday morning that his Patriots career is over leaves Bill Belichick right back there the following year, as it tended to be before the Patriots became the AFC favorite Without question, having the greatest QB to ever live covered up a lot of mistakes in trades and

The expectations will still be there - but anything from here on out is just gravy. Also, it will probably be nice for him to have a new boss.

While he and Belichick have seemed to have a good relationship, it can't be easy to work for the same guy for that many years, no matter how much success you've had together. That type of relationship can also grind you down, even though Belichick said some really heartfelt and classy things about his former QB on Tuesday.

Now Belichick gets a chance to use some of the team's money to fill in the numerous gaps that the roster currently has. He gets to either find a new QB via free agency or a trade or work with a young guy already on the roster and try to build a winner when everyone is ready to throw dirt on the Patriots' grave.

Breakups are never easy, but sometimes they have to happen. Especially in sports when Father Time often dictates the length of those relationships. Brady gets a fresh start with house money, as his legacy is already set.

Nobody really cares about what Joe Montana did with the Chiefs or what Joe Namath did with the Rams or what Brett Favre did with the Vikings and Jets. We know those guys are legends. And we know Brady is the GOAT.

Well done, Byron Brown. Thank you.
