By Matt Dolloff,

We still don’t know where Tom Brady will play football in the 2020 season. But we now know that it won’t be in New England.

Brady announced himself via Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday morning that he intends to play football elsewhere moving forward. He will leave behind 20 incomparable seasons with the Patriots, which included six Super Bowl championships and nine total appearances. Now, he will try to get back to the big game in another uniform.

“Although my football journey will take place elsewhere, I appreciate everything that we have achieved and am grateful for our incredible TEAM accomplishments,” Brady’s post reads, in part. Read the full post below.

Brady also shared a post thanking Patriots fans for their support over the past 20 years. “I don’t know what my football future holds but it is time for me to open a new stage for my life and career,” it says. Read that entire post below.

And now, with a return to the Patriots officially off the table, the discussion will center around which new uniform Brady wears in 2020. Some teams previously believed to have interest – the Titans, 49ers, and Raiders among them – have gone in different directions. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Chargers and Buccaneers have each made strong offers already. It appears that Brady will continue to take his time on a decision, especially now that the deadline is passed with the Patriots.
