Fanduel Latest Betting Odds On where Brady Will Play Next Year- My Take

The Homie Cast


Joey’s take:

So you could bet $180 to win $100 that he’ll play for New England

Bet $100 to win $750 if he plays for the Chargers.

My gut says he stays in New England where his legacy is.  i think he’d take a couple million less per year to stay with the Patriots but not 5 million or more less.

Only a couple other places other than New England I could see him going would be:

The Chargers because LA would be a cool place for Gizelle and his family and there are offensive weapons.  they’re opening a new stadium and might throw ALL the money at him to fill seats much like the Raiders.

The Titans because of Vrabel and having a great offensive line and Henry the beast running back that would take a lot of defensive attention away from the passing game.

Long shot Vegas…

Bid now Gloucester art at auction | Sotheby’s American Art sale closing March 5 and Doyle sale March 10

I track and bid at auctions because I help people buy art. From time to time I highlight here on GMG a few selections from upcoming auctions, fairs and shows solely because they have some Gloucester (Cape Ann) connection. In the early spring sales at two New York auction houses, artists include: Emma Fordyce MacRae, Gifford Beal, Jane Peterson, John Sloan, Lillian Westcott Hale, Paul Manship, W. Lester Stevens and Martha Walter.
