Tom will earn a salary this season of only $3,500,000, after a recent $3 million roster bonus. It is the last $3.5 million owed to him under his current contract. Tom has lost his best wide receiver, Wes Welker, and the Patriots have made no attempts to find a replacement in free agency. This only a year after letting Jabar Gaffney leave without a proper replacement. Brady's top two tight ends have been let go as well, again without replacement. At this point the team will most likely try to find Brady's receivers and/or tight ends with rookies, through the draft. This all in a uncapped year. ( If the Patriot adjusted cap from 2009 was still in place, the Patriots would be $21 million dollars below it. ) Is it possible that Tom Brady's absence at the opening of offseason workouts today was a message to management? A message that, if the front office won't make a commitment to the team, or to Brady, then he won't either?
