According to a report from Ian Rapoport via Pro Football Talk, the Colts have met with Tom Brady’s representatives at the combine.
This will certainly stir up a lot of conversation around the Colts.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Darlington, Brady is approaching the spring “under the belief that he will enter free agency to play somewhere other than New England next season.”
With Tom Brady’s return to New England looking doubtful, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that Don Yee expects to meet with the Las Vegas Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers and Indianapolis Colts, among other teams as well.
The strong buzz in Indy this week is that Tom Brady won’t return to the Patriots. Will be first domino to fall in QB musical chairs. #NFLCombine

For a team such as the Colts with Super Bowl aspirations, the allure of signing Brady is obvious.
With six Super Bowl rings to his name, he certainly could benefit from the talent on the Colt’s offensive line and roster.
Also, the Colts certainly could afford to pay Brady a high salary. OverTheCap.com projects the Colts to have around 93M in cap space to spend.
The Patriots still have not reached out to Tom Brady. According to a source, “it’s not looking good”

However, the 42-year Brady has shown signs of slowing down.
In 2019, his 253.6 yards per game were the lowest since 2010.
His 60.8 percent completion pct was also his worst since the 2013 NFL season.
