Teams that pursued quarterback Tom Brady in free agency were reportedly “under the impression” that Brady wanted to reunite with free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown, according to reports. 

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport seconded the report and added that Brady and Brown are close despite only playing together for one game last season before the New England Patriots released Brown.
