Tom Brady Futures

Odds Tom Brady retires before the 2018 season: 99/1

The TB12 diet will allow him to play until he’s paying the discount rate at the movie theater, and the drive is clearly still there. The Super Bowl 52 loss only cements the reality that Brady is going to run it back for at least one more year. Plus, you have to think the Pats were confident in getting at least a couple more years out of Brady when they dealt Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers.

OVER/UNDER date of Tom Brady’s retirement: Feb. 1, 2020

If you’re wondering, Super Bowl 54 is on Feb. 2, 2020, in Miami.

OVER/UNDER career Super Bowl rings for Tom Brady: 5.5

The Patriots are going to have to do something about that defense, but the AFC is not exactly a murderer’s row right now. Brady could be playing with the Little Giants’ defense and still beat the Steelers.

 

Nick Foles Futures

Odds Nick Foles is a starting QB in Week 1 of the 2018 season: 3/4

Foles is under contract for 2018, and he showed exactly how valuable a solid (understatement of the century) backup QB is in this league. How badly do you think the Cardinals wanted someone Foles-like when Carson Palmer went down? But, at the same time, Foles’ value is never going to be higher. Philly GM Howie Roseman has a chance to surround Carson Wentz with even more talent than he already has, which is, to be clear, an immense amount. This is how you build a dynasty. If I know that, you can be darn sure Roseman, arguably the best executive in the NFL, knows it a thousand times over.

Odds on Nick Foles’ team in Week 1 of the 2018 season

  • Eagles: 3/2
  • Cardinals: 8/1
  • Jets: 9/1
  • Broncos: 12/1
  • Bills: 12/1
  • Vikings: 19/1
  • Jaguars: 24/1
  • FIELD: 11/2

It’s more likely than not that Foles gets moved, but where he ends up is still a massive question mark.
