If Tom Brady is indeed leaving the New England Patriots, the Anaheim Ducks might have a home for him in Southern California.
The Ducks tweeted at the legendary NFL quarterback inviting him to consider playing for them after Brady announced he wouldn't return to the Patriots on Tuesday.
Brady, a six-time NFL champion who has played his entire 20-season career in New England, delivered the stunning news on Twitter and Instagram. He is also a native of San Mateo, California, located in the northern part of the state.
Brady has been an avid Boston Bruins supporter during his time in New England, especially during their Stanley Cup Playoff runs. The Bruins official Twitter account thanked Brady for his support and spectacular play.
If there is mutual interest, Brady's No. 12 is available. The last Ducks player to wear it was Devante Smith-Pelly in 2015. Others to wear No. 12 for Anaheim include Niklas Hagman (2012), Josh Green (2009-11), Brandon Bochenski (2008), Jeff Friesen (2006), Mike Leclerc (1999-2004), Kevin Todd (1997-98) and David Sacco (1995-1996).
Former Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy, a New Hampshire native who has appeared on NHL Network and NBC Sports as a studio analyst, shared his thanks to Brady on social media.
