CBS Sportsline’s Pete Prisco offered up another Tom Brady contract story on Monday night, but the good news is – this time around it’s to tell everyone that he doesn’t think Brady’s going anywhere.
Brady’s in the final year of his contract, as is Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, and most published reports expect his deal to likely end up being comparable to Manning’s when a deal for the Colts QB finally comes to fruition. After Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports reported that there may be a “disconnect” between the two sides last month, Prisco has since spoken to one AFC general manager who thought the concept of New England letting Brady walk was one of the dumbest things he’s heard in a while.
“That’s one of the dumbest things I’ve heard in a long time,” one AFC general manager said. “They would let Tom Brady walk? Yeah, right.”
Prisco also writes that “Owner Bob Kraft is a smart man, and no smart man in his right mind would let a franchise passer, arguably the best in the NFL, walk away.”
