The Quest for 7: Patriots to offer Brady $$$? Gilmore makes history, Seymour snub, Links 2.3.20

Morning! Welcome to The Quest for 7, where volunteer writer, Steven Viner, scours the net for seven Patriots related articles from other sites offering different points of view on the six-time champs. Paid subscribers not only get to read all seven, but they also get to check out his always fiery "Steve's Soapbox" at the end.

1. If you were invited to some random party last night like I was, for some insignificant reason that you didn't pay much attention to, Greg Bedard of Boston Sports Journal can fill you in on this mysterious event with his column on the 49ers' collapse.

2. After a forgetful boring Sunday, Ian Rapoport of came out with the best Patriots' news in quite some time. Boston Sports Journal's own Greg Bedard also weighed in on all of yesterday's Brady rumors. if Kraft is willing to spend this much to bring Tom Brady back, I love our chances of the GOAT returning. Can I gettah Hallelujah to the Amennnnnnn!!!!!!! 

3. Despite Rapoports's big news, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the Raiders are letting it be known that they are interested in Tom Brady if he doesn't return to the Patriots. Great job, Oakland. You just alienated Derek Carr if you can't arrange to transfer the GOAT from Foxboro to your soon-to-be zoo.

4. After Brady's most recent social media post brought all of the magnifying glass holding football sleuths out in search of clues, Adam Wells of Bleacher Report informs us that the cryptic pic is reportedly for a Super Bowl LIV commercial. Too bad no one will ever see it after they canceled the big game due to lack of interest. #I'mNotInDenial

5. Another day, another disrespect card dealt to the Patriots.
