Will Tom Brady join another team towards the end of his career similar to Favre and Manning? (AP Photo/Steven Senne) Over the past five years, NFL fans have seen Hall of Fame quarterbacks, Brett Favre and Peyton Manning leave their respective teams for another team towards the end of their careers. Eventually, the Packers and Colts decided that it was time to move on from their franchise quarterbacks. One has to wonder if, eventually, New England will look to move on from Tom Brady. With another NFL off-season approaching, questions are being asked about Tom Brady’s future in New England. While it seems crazy that the Patriots would ever let Brady join another team, there may come a time when Brady’s production levels are not worth keeping him on the team. Patriots owner Robert Kraft spoke on Brady’s future on Friday. “”I’d love him to be here as long as he’s productive and feels he wants to play,” owner Robert Kraft told Tom Curran of CSN New England on Friday. Kraft’s opinion looks to be the same as those in Denver and Green Bay towards the end of Favre and Manning’s tenures. Will a time come when Brady’s production level is not worth keeping him on the team? Kraft spoke about the possibility of Brady signing with another team, towards the end of his career. At some point, however, the desire to not have the quarterback play for his long-time team outweighs the desire that he not play for another one. “[E]verything is a dual decision,” Kraft said. It definitely would be interesting to see the media and fan’s reaction to Brady signing with another team. In Green Bay and Indianapolis, the team had a franchise quarterback to step in and take the reigns. Without a franchise quarterback to replace Brady, you would have to believe New England will never let Brady sign with another team.
