    if he doesn't care about money, he should have no problem playing for the minimum provided the pats spend the 30M on passing targets

    You might be right, but acting like you know for sure is the actual hilarious thing.

    It's also just simple math leading some of us to the opposite conclusion. There's cap space for Brady and not much else. You can only spread cap hits if it's a longer term deal, and the longer the deal is, the less I like it for the team. Therefore, if we keep Brady, it is highly likely we don't have much cap space to work with.

    But yeah, you totally know what's going to happen.

    They pissed him off last year with the deal they gave him. Incentive laden one year deal. Looks like he took it as a sign of disrespect and now he wants to put the screws to them and let them know he can get top dollar if he wanted to.

    Which I think Gruden and Mayock will make a hell of a pitch.

    I'm not sure whether this report is a smokescreen to save face or real negotiations. If you look at what NFL QBs get, $30m isn't ridiculous, even for a 43 y/o QB. Guys like Goff, Wentz, and Big Ben make more than $30m per. I'd rather have Brady, though I don't see how they can "get him weapons" and pay him $30m+.

    The incentive laden deal was prior to 2018, not this one. Presumably he signed it because he thought he’d get his long term deal prior to 2019.

    The 2019 deal wasn’t incentive laden. It provided him with a raise. It just wasn’t a multi year deal. Presumably he signed it because it gave him more guaranteed money and because it included the franchise tag prohibition, which did not exist in his prior deal.

    He signed it because it granted his freedom this offseason.

    Do you think “old ass man” Brady is likely to be a top 5 QB in the NFL next season? I do, and $30m is the going rate for those guys, so I pay it. The issue is just making sure you don’t have a cap crippling dead cap hit if you give him a multi year deal and he declines such that he’s no longer a top 5 QB.

    You sound so sure of this, is there something I missed. I really hope you're right, I just wish we would know one way or another for certain.

    As an aside, I’ll note that last night’s halftime show was a quality one for any old ass-man.

    I don't........he hasn't been a top 5 QB the last 2 years

    his legacy would have been best if he hung it up after beating the Rams

    Actually I just read his daughters comments, and no I did not see the ad till much later on. ( watched it on youtube ).In Canada they don't show the US commercials during SB, they show Canadian ads . Now it makes sense, I just wish the Pats would make an official announcement soon !

    You’d think that, but here were some grumpy people in the GDT that weren’t fans.

    On the other hand, my grandpa is 104 and he liked it! Not for the music though...
