Tom Brady Will Leave Patriots, Texans Trade Hopkins, Vikings Trade Diggs, MLB Delayed, Derby Postponed


Tom Brady announced on Twitter he will be leaving the Patriots. In a post named “Forever a Patriot”, the six-time Super Bowl champion announced he will become an unrestricted free for the first time in his career.

“To all my teammates, coaches, executives and staff, Coach Belichick, RKK and the Kraft family and the entire organization. I want to say thank you for the past twenty years of my life and the daily commitment to winning and creating a winning club built on great values. I am grateful for all that you have taught me- I have learned from everyone. You all have allowed me to maximize my potential and that is all a player can hope for, Everything we have accomplished brings me great joy and the lessons I have learned will carry on with me forever. I couldn’t be the man I am today without the relationships you have allowed me to build with you. I have benefited from all you have given me. I cherish every opportunity I had to be a part of our team, and I love you all for it. Our team has always set a great standard in pro sports and I know it will continue to do just that. Although my football journey will take place elsewhere, I appreciated everything that we have achieved and am grateful for our incredible TEAM accomplishments. I have been privileged to have had the opportunity to know each and every one of you, and to have the memories we’ve created together.”

In other NFL trade news (and a head-scratcher for most analysts and fans), the Houston Texans announced they will trade one of the best receivers in the league, DeAndre Hopkins, to the Arizona Cardinals for running back David Johnson and a 2020 2nd-round pick and a 2021 4th-round pick.

The Minnesota Vikings announced they will trade Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills for a 2020 1st-round, 5th round, and 6th round pick as well as a 2021 4th-round pick.


Major League Baseball delayed the start of their regular season until at least mid-May due to the CDC’s recommendation to cancel or postpone all events involving more than 50 people over the next eight weeks.


The Kentucky Derby will be pushed back to September 5th.
