This NFL offseason could be one of the wildest in recent memory, with an unusual number of starting quarterbacks potentially looking for new homes.

The name that really highlights this list is Tom Brady, who had previously never seemed like anything less than a lock to stay with the New England Patriots in any given offseason. But now, after 20 years with the Pats, there's a very real chance he finds himself playing elsewhere in the 2020 season.

With that in mind, here are the three biggest favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's odds, to sign Tom Brady this offseason.

Tom Brady Free Agency Odds

3. Las Vegas Raiders (+650)

The Las Vegas Raiders have a starting quarterback on the roster, but there's a real chance Derek Carr also finds a new home in 2020. Jon Gruden has always been enamored with veteran players, and the Raiders could be looking to make a big splash in their first year playing in Vegas. Brady could instantly bring the Raiders into contention in the AFC West, and with two first-round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Raiders have plenty of ammunition to add some more solid pieces to support a 2020 playoff push.

2. Tennessee Titans (+550)

The last time we looked at the odds for Brady's destination, the Tennessee Titans were third at +1300. This is a huge jump, and recent reports have emerged that there could be some interest on this front. Ryan Tannehill is set to become an unrestricted free agent, but most of the other pieces that brought Tennessee a deep playoff run are still in place, and Brady could reunite with former teammate and current Titans' head coach Mike Vrabel to see if the pair could conjure up more Super Bowl magic in a different city.

1. New England Patriots (-180)

The New England Patriots are still the favorites, but their odds have tumbled from a peak of -600. That's a drop of over 20 percentage points in implied probability. Even in what felt like a down year, Brady and the Pats put together a 12-4 regular season record, and with the Brady and Belichick combination intact, it seems that they will always be in playoff contention. The most likely result of this drama is still the least exciting one — that Brady is wearing the same colors in 2020 that he always has — but it's certainly notable how drastically the odds of that happening have fallen.
