INDIANAPOLIS -- In three weeks, Tom Brady can become a free agent.
He's already a burning topic.
And the Los Angeles Chargers are one of the teams singed by the rumors surrounding Brady, who widely is labeled the greatest of all time and definitely is considered the most-discussed of these times.
No NFL player's future holds more intrigue than Brady's, the six-time Super Bowl winner perhaps about to leave his longtime home of New England to finish his Hall of Fame quarterbacking career elsewhere.
Maybe in Los Angeles?
"I've been asked the question I can't tell you how many different ways and different times," Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said. "The way I've kind of answered it is this: We're early in the process, way too early to eliminate anything right now.
"Like, we're more in a wide-lens evaluation process to see what fits, what doesn't fit. We'll narrow things down later on. But we'll see."
Asked a more specific question regarding Brady's ability, Telesco refused to answer before offering some generic, innocent praise for a player whose presence alone would bring the Chargers a new degree of relevance.
Besides, Brady isn't free until March 18, and the possibility remains he could resign with the Patriots. So Telesco sees no value in publicly addressing a situation that might never develop.
Yet, Brady and his teetering fate tower over the early portion of the NFL's offseason, the quarterback-needing Chargers reported to be one of his preferred alternate destinations.
