The Quest for 7: Patriots podcasts, Brady tug-of-war, NFL stars likely to be cut, Links 2.13.20

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.

3. If you just woke up from a coma and would like to catch up on the TB12 saga from the past month, Mike Reiss of ESPN answers what will happen if Brady and the Patriots decide to split up ... or stay together. Is the "Dynasty" over?
