ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday morning Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has yet to formally commit to playing football in 2018, despite those close to him believing he will return for the upcoming season. Patriots’ QB Tom Brady still has not committed to playing in 2018, even though people who know him believe he will back coming season, league sources told ESPN. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 18, 2018 “It’s interesting because the Patriots are still awaiting official word from Tom Brady about his future,” Schefter said on ESPN Wednesday. “But there’s no official word Tom Brady will be back for the 2018 season. He has not yet committed to playing. I think that the people around him and the people inside that organization think that he’ll play, but they don’t know that he will play — and that question lingers as the draft approaches next week.” Schefter’s report is a bit of a mystery — … [Read more...] about Here’s another dose of speculation about Tom Brady’s future

close Video Stormy Daniels reveals sketch of man she says threatened her Stormy Daniels claims man threatened her to keep quiet over alleged Trump affair. Tom Brady found himself unwittingly pulled into another Trump controversy Tuesday as porn star Stormy Daniels released a sketch of the man she says threatened her to keep quiet about her relationship with the president – a drawing that bears an uncanny resemblance to the Patriots superstar. Nobody is actually accusing the famed quarterback of taking time out to harass the adult film star. But media observers and pundits immediately took to Twitter to marvel at the similarities. “It’s all coming together,” conservative radio host Ben Shapiro tweeted, with a photo of the sketch and one of Brady next to Trump.

The visiting New England Patriots were just short of the marker, and now head coach Bill Belichick had a choice. It was fourth down and they were sitting at their own 45 yard line, with just inside of two minutes left, both in the game and in this dispiriting season. If nothing else, dignity was at stake here. The book said to punt. Instead, Belichick looked out at Drew Bledsoe and told his quarterback to stay on the field. Why not just put an end to it with one play here? On the CBS telecast, the announcers perked up.

Tom Brady has yet to sign a contract extension with the Patriots, but owner Robert Kraft says both he and the quarterback are OK with that. “He’ll be 41 when the season starts,” Kraft told The Athletic‘s Jeff Howe. “Neither side has an issue with it. If it becomes an issue, we’ll deal with it.” Brady is currently signed through the 2019 season, but he reportedly would “most certainly entertain” contract negotiations. The five-time Super Bowl champion, who turns 41 years old in August, typically signs an extension with two seasons remaining on his contract. His past deals also often take place before the start of free agency — to lessen his cap hit, which stands at its a career-high $22 million. Kraft told Howe the two sides are ready to mobilize and re-ignite contract negotiations should the opportunity present itself. Although Brady has previously expressed a desire to play through his mid-40’s, the ominous finish … [Read more...] about Robert Kraft shed light on Tom Brady’s contract situation
Despite falling just short of a second straight Super Bowl in February, the Patriots last season ended up defined by the reported growing tension between Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and owner Robert Kraft — a development detailed at length in the bombshell ESPN report released in January. Specifically, the fractured relationship between Brady and Belichick stemmed from disagreements over the involvement of Alex Guerrero, Brady’s personal trainer who co-owns the TB12 Therapy Center. And apparently, those conflicts about Guerrero weren’t limited to just Brady and Belichick. According to the Boston Herald, Belichick “chastised” tight end Rob Gronkowski early last season in front of teammates for continuing to train with Guerrero. ESPN reported in January that Belichick had significantly decreased Guerrero’s role with the team at some point last season, which stoked the flames of the discord in Foxborough. Previously, Guerrero was so involved in the … [Read more...] about Rob Gronkowski using Tom Brady’s trainer got Patriots TE on wrong side of Bill Belichick: report
