For the first time in the past two decades, Tom Brady's future with the New England Patriots is legitimately in doubt. And given Brady's unrivaled resume, he should have no shortage of suitors should he actually hit the open market.

With that in mind, let's break down which teams are favored to sign the future Hall of Famer, according to odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.

3. Tennessee Titans (+1300)

The Tennessee Titans, who just eliminated Brady from the 2019-20 postseason, currently have the third-best odds to sign the Patriots' signal-caller. While Ryan Tannehill's emergence could certainly be a bit of a roadblock, the idea of bringing Brady into a Titans team that features Derrick Henry, a dominant O-Line and A.J. Brown could be too tempting for Tennessee to pass up.

2. Las Vegas Raiders (+750)

If the Raiders are looking to make a splash in their first season in Las Vegas, signing the greatest quarterback of all time would certainly do just that. Like Tennessee, the Raiders do already have a talented signal-caller at the helm, but Las Vegas does also have the ninth-most cap space in the NFL. Jon Gruden has always seemed to gravitate toward more proven, veteran options and Brady could be an excellent fit in his offense.

1. New England Patriots (-600)

Of course, the likeliest outcome would be Brady returning to New England. There aren't many teams with an open spot at quarterback, and re-signing Brady gives the Patriots' their best chance at contending for a Super Bowl in 2021. Recent reports have indicated New England is willing to shell out a big contract to retain Brady's services, and if the Patriots can re-tool the offense a bit, the odds certainly suggest that he'll will be back with the team next season.
