Brady knows his actions mean a lot, and if the SI article is true and that his dissapearance the last few days was some sort of protest then that will just endear him more to his teammates. We heard how Javon walker was upset because of Favre publically speaking against him, we heard how TO called MCNabb a puppett for the FO. No one can accuse Brady of that. If I was Brady i would be upset too. We heard how when he took his discount how he mentioned he didnt want to take up the cap space so his teamates could get signed. Now here he is, a first class QB, sitting in a 100 degree temperatures throwing to street free agents when his go to guy needs a new contract with 15 mill still in cap space. I love the FO, but sometimes they need a wake up call to avoid alienating the players.
