Tom Brady Has Entered The Building
Tom Brady has reported to training camp early. The GOAT is coming off an interesting offseason in which he skipped all of the voluntary workouts. Brady has been spending more time with his family and training his own way with Alex Guerrero to be ready for the season. He is likely very happy that Josh McDaniels is back and also that no quarterback on the roster is a threat to take his job. There was question if Brady would holdout because of a contract. But that isn’t happening and he’ll be ready to go.
Retire A New England Patriot?
Brady wants to end his career with the Patriots and Robert Kraft is making sure that happens. The 2019 season will likely be his last, judging by his candid remarks in an interview with Oprah. The “playing until 45” guarantees was a tactic to keep Jimmy Garoppolo at bay and for the fans to celebrate. It’s more realistic to suggest that Brady will be retiring when his contract is up after the 2019 season. He’ll have one year with Josh McDaniels as the head coach.
18 Years Has Flown By
When Brady was drafted back in 2000, he was out of shape and told Kraft the this will be the best decision the organization has ever made. Eighteen years later, Brady has lived up to his word. Drafting Brady 18 years ago was indubitably the best decision the organization has ever made. Brady has won five Super Bowls and helped turn the Patriots into a dynasty for 18 years. He’s made his own brand, started a family, and traveled the world to visit fans everywhere. Brady’s ego may have gotten in the way recently, but that was only because his job was at stake. Once Brady went to Kraft about playing until age 45, Kraft ensured that Garoppolo would be traded.
Brady played much better after Garoppolo was drafted and won two Super Bowls. As his career is coming to a close sooner rather than later, let’s enjoy the last years of Brady in a Patriots uniform and forget the ugly along the way.
