There seems to be a real chance that the Los Angeles Chargers sign Tom Brady this offseason, which would change the 2020 NFL Draft significantly.
The Los Angeles Chargers have the massive task of finding the team’s next quarterback to fill Philip Rivers‘ shoes and the man for the job might just be the greatest quarterback of all-time, Tom Brady.
For the first time in his career, Tom Brady is a free agent and he seems to be mulling all of his options. Could this be a ploy before returning to the New England Patriots? Absolutely. But it also could be the end of the most successful quarterback-head coach partnership of all-time.
If Brady does leave New England then the Chargers are right atop the list of potential candidates. First of all, the move to Los Angeles would be a lifestyle change for Brady and one that could open more doors outside of football for him and his family.
Brady has already announced that he is launching 199 Productions in Hollywood with Joe and Anthony Russo, the brothers who are known for their work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
For the Chargers, this would be the best way for the team to sell tickets at the new stadium in 2020, something that is going to be a problem.
Whether or not it is the right thing to do is completely subjective. On one hand, you have the greatest quarterback of all-time who knows what it takes to win. On the other hand, he turns 43 in August and could restrict the team financially in the upcoming offseasons.
Regardless of your stance, signing Tom Brady would make a huge impact on the 2020 NFL Draft. With the assumption that Brady signed with the Chargers, we hopped on FanSpeak’s NFL Mock Draft simulator and conducted an entire seven-round mock draft.
