As the 2020 league year approaches with one of the most loaded free agent classes in recent memory, there's been one name that has still managed to dominate the conversation.

Tom Brady has spent his entire 20-year career with the New England Patriots, and for the first time it looks like he has a real chance of playing for a new team. But as the opening free agency date of March 18 approaches, Brady's odds of remaining a Patriot have quietly been improving on FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Patriots opened as massive -330 favorites to re-sign their Hall-of-Fame QB, though those odds have moved quite a bit throughout the offseason.

It wasn't long before that line fell, but they sat for a while as big -280 favorites. Those odds had fallen to -180 on February 27th, and then got as low as -125 on March 5 amidst news that the San Francisco 49ers were also in the running to sign him.

Now, on March 12, the Patriots are back at -180, while no other team checks in with better odds than +600.

This is still far from a done deal, as the 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Los Angeles Chargers, Las Vegas Raiders and Tennessee Titans have all been connected to Brady, but the line movement is certainly a good sign for New England.

Stay tuned, though, because with at least six more days to go until Brady gets a new deal done, anything can happen and any new favorite can emerge.
