Actual information or posturing for negotiating purposes?

That’s the question Thursday morning as a flood of #BradyWatch news hit the public.

The Chaos started on ESPN’s Get Up, when insider Jeff Darlington gave his ‘informed opinion’ that Brady is likely to move on from the Patriots.

Darlington said that while those close to Brady have been told he is going elsewhere, they still don’t believe it. He later doubled down on Twitter.

Later in the morning, Boston Herald Patriots reporter Karen Guregian followed up with a similar report.

Brady’s agent Don Yee is in Indianapolis for the agent seminar at the NFL Combine. It was reported yesterday that Yee and the Patriots were expected to meet during the week for initial conversations surrounding Tom Brady’s deal. When speaking with reporters Thursday morning, Yee declined to comment on the negotiations.

Brady’s contract officially expires March 18. The Raiders, Chargers, Titans, and Buccaneers are among the favorites to land the 42-year-old QB if he decides to leave the Patriots.
