Despite the fact that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is still without a contract extension, The New York Times has an article this morning on Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who told the newspaper yesterday that “one way or another” they'll find a way to make sure Brady stays with the team.

“He’s going to be here,” Kraft said yesterday. “I love the guy. We’re so lucky to have him. I have an emotional attachment because I remember him coming in as the fourth quarterback, being a skinny beanpole of a kid.”

Despite reports of the possibility of Brady holding out, the veteran quarterback arrived in Foxboro last Sunday and has been working with the team ever since - just as he always has. Recent reports have said that talks were progressing toward a new deal, and Kraft said that while it's "complicated", he expects they'll find a way to keep him here.

“In my mind, he will be,” Kraft said. “One way or another. I believe he wants to be here. We want him here. We have a complicated situation we’re dealing with. There are a lot of forces at work. One way or another it will work out.”
