As I mentioned at the backup blog one of the funniest things I’ve heard concerning the retirement of Andrew Luck is the repeated meme that this was their year for the Superbowl.
The blunt Truth is that until someone in the AFC manages to figure out how to get Past Tom Brady it’s his year and nobody else’s.
But the Luck retirement has opened up one possibility that nobody has talked about. In Brady’s newest contract he is able to become a free agent at the end of the season if he so chooses, if indy is really serious that their team as constructed was only Andrew Luck away from a serious superbowl run why not go all out and try to sign Tom Brady to fill that hole?
Not only would that unite Brady with his Superbowl partner and the only player in the league older than him in Adam Vinatieri but it’s likely that the Colts would offer him a hell of a contract with as much control as he wants.
Now in fairness all of this is dependent on Brady having another big year without injury and the Colts not making another long term move or Jacoby Brissett suddenly breaking out big and I mean REALLY big.
But if I’m the Indy front office I have nothing to lose by going all in on the Brady sweepstakes at worst it’s a short term hit that puts butts in the seats and at best it could mean another super bowl heading to Indy and wouldn’t it be something to see Brady and Vinatieri hoisting that trophy together again?
FYI If I’m the Patriots front office I’m making contract offers to prevent this possibility RIGHT NOW!
