New England Patriots: Pats fans can breathe a sigh of relief


According to Tom Brady’s agent there is no need to worry. Tom Brady will be under center for the New England Patriots in 2018.

Well it looks like New England Patriots fans nightmares have come to an end. Even though it didn’t seem like a possibility when it was first reported, to hear that Tom Brady playing in 2018 wasn’t a sure thing scared some Patriots fans. I for one am not ready for life without Brady, but thanks to the quarterback’s agent we can all breathe a sigh of relief.

"“Tom’s intentions have not changed,” Yee said Monday. “He’s consistently said he’ll play beyond this contract and into his mid-40s, or until he feels he isn’t playing at a championship level. I understand the constant speculation, but this is one point he’s been firm about.”"

Thank you Mr. Yee. That is exactly what Pats fans want to hear. The Patriots need Tom Brady. Besides his amazing skill, he is an amazing leader. He shows players how hard you have to work to be successful in the NFL. Something that hasn’t changed as he enters his 18th season.

"“He customizes his preparation to each season in order to maximize his performance,” Yee said. “His training methods are always evolving and getting better. The year he missed the first four games — that month of training on his own was particularly efficient."

Brady doesn’t seem to be slowing down as he threw for 4,577 yards and 32 touchdowns last season. With Julian Edelman and Malcolm Mitchell returning he will have some of his favorite weapons back on the field with him.

Also with the Patriots heightened interest in drafting a quarterback it looks like Brady will be a mentor as well. Every quarterback the Patriots and Brady touch seems to turn into a starter so whoever the Patriots draft will most likely be a pretty good QB when his time comes.
