BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Tom Brady's a six-time champ and, at 41, still says he plans to play until he's 45. But, eventually, the defending champion Patriots will need a succession plan—unless you believe that's Brian Hoyer or Danny Etling.
That may come in the form of a draft pick this spring, or perhaps a trade or free agent signing.
Colin Kaepernick remains a free agent after reaching a settlement with the NFL in his collusion case, claiming the league's owners conspired to keep him out of the league. He hasn't played in the NFL since 2016.
But, the QB's attorney Mark Geragos told CNN over the weekend he believes his client may wind up in Foxborough before long.
"I think you're gonna see within the next two weeks that somebody's gonna step up, somebody's going to do the right thing," Geragos said. "You want me to predict who? I will tell you besides the Panthers, it would not surprise me if Bob Kraft makes a move. That would not surprise me, and it would not surprise me if his former coach, I'll test your knowledge, also makes a move."
Seemingly, Geragos was making reference to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. He preceded Bill Belichick in New England, and he's also the only other head coach Pats owner Robert Kraft's employed, aside from Bill Parcells, but he's been out of that game since 2006.
