When you get on the professional level and especially in the NFL. You have to deal with a lot of public relations. The last thing you want to do is make a drastic announcement and have to deal with a wave of backlash. That can make going to work very tough and it would be a distraction for the team you play for. So when Tom Brady was seen in Nashville looking at schools for his children. It was a move that subtly eases the fans into Brady’s transition to the Tennessee Titans. It all makes sense if you step back and look at the big picture. Mike Vrabel and Brady were former teammates and their friendship goes way back. Maybe even more importantly.
Tennessee’s offense has a young superstar receiver in A.J Brown. And if they also retain Derrick Henry in free agency then Tom Brady would have all the help around him that he needs. Look Ryan Tannehill was very good but in the playoffs he came back down to earth. Tannehill had under 100 passing yards against the Ravens and Patriots. So it’s clear he tends to struggle against elite competition and that’s where the Titans believe Brady can be better. Yeah Tannehill deserves credit for getting Tennessee to the playoffs. But you need someone like Tom Brady to take it from here. If Brady goes to the Titans then he’s heading to a franchise that’s trending in the right direction. And he could be the piece that puts them over the top.
