Some of the NFL’s best quarterbacks are set to become free agents on March 18. Tom Brady, Dak Prescott and Drew Brees are all unsigned for the 2020 season, sparking tons of speculation regarding their futures.

The latest rumors suggest Brady might consider leaving the New England Patriots for the Las Vegas Raiders or Los Angeles Chargers. Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys appear unlikely to come to terms on a multi-year contract anytime soon. Brees is contemplating retirement after 14 seasons with the New Orleans Saints.

Despite all the different possible scenarios, each signal caller is more than likely to sign a new contract with their current team.

Brady is expected to test free agency for the first time in his career. After years of taking discounts to help New England win, the six-time champion might be looking to make sure he becomes one of the NFL’s highest-paid players in 2020. 

According to’s Ian Rapoport, the Patriots are willing to pay Brady upwards of $30 million per year. If New England is ready to match (or come close to matching) any offer that Brady will get on the open market, it’s hard to see him playing elsewhere.

Even after a wild-card round playoff exit, the Patriots give Brady a better chance to win than either of his top suitors. Derek Carr played fairly well in the 2019 season as the Raiders went 7-9 with a below-average defense. Los Angeles certainly has a more talented group of playmakers than New England, but Brady probably isn’t taking a last-place team with a bad offensive line to the Super Bowl at this point in his career.

The Patriots had the NFL’s No.1 defense and 12 wins in the regular season. With the greatest head coach of all-time still at the helm, New England is in a position to be among the AFC’s best teams.

In Dallas, there is little concern that Prescott is headed elsewhere. The Cowboys are expected to use the franchise tag on their quarterback if the two sides can’t agree on a long-term contract.

Prescott and Dallas can still negotiate a deal if the quarterback is tagged in March. Jerry Jones and the Cowboys seem to want Prescott to be their franchise quarterback for years to come. They should eventually come to an agreement, much like how Dallas gave Ezekiel Elliott a $90 million contract to end the running back’s holdout in September.

“It’s been urgent for us [to sign Prescott],” Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said last month, via The Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We certainly want to get that done. That’s our No. 1 priority as we go into the off-season is to get his contract … hopefully find some resolution to it and get that done.”

The Saints don’t have to worry about Brees playing for another team. The 41-year-old will either return to New Orleans in 2020 or call it a career.

Maybe Brees will decide to retire, but he appears to have plenty left in the tank. Before a poor performance in New Orleans’ first-round playoff loss, the quarterback had a 116.3 passer rating with 27 touchdown passes and four interceptions in 11 regular-season starts.

The Saints have gone 13-3 in consecutive seasons with three straight NFC South titles.
