1. The G.O.A.T.

The man needs no introduction. Quarterback Tom Brady needs two hands to wear his Super Bowl rings. What does that tell you?

Last season, the greatest quarterback of all-time earned $23 million, which wasn’t even top-five quarterback money at the time. And yet, Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. answered “father time” in 2019 with over 4,000 passing yards, 24 touchdowns to eight interceptions, and a 12-4 regular-season record.

As you already know, he tossed aside the Cowboys last year at Foxborough. The quarterback turns an astonishing 43 in August.

Is Tom Brady heading to Dallas? Doubtful. But who knows. The Dallas Cowboys will spend nearly $33 million on a franchise tag for Prescott, so why not hand those dollars to Brady and his deep résumé.

Jerry Jones loves to make a big splash. A Tom Brady free agent signing would probably break the internet over and over. Just imagine all the eyeballs on America’s Team in 2020. Brady and his ‘TB 12’ ways would change Dallas; he would change the city as well.

Obviously, if this transaction went down, the G.O.A.T. would have to phone Roger Staubach. I’m sure Captain America wouldn’t have a problem with Brady wearing no. 12. Jerry Jones wouldn’t mind either.
