Curran loves to pile it on when things aren’t going well with the Patriots.
I would say 98% of media/ nfl want the Patriots to fail and wants Brady to retire or go to a different team.
That being said Brady isn’t worth 30m a year.
Sentimental or not 30m for a 43-44 year old QB is absurd.
Edit to add: This team is never going to invest in big money on the WR position, I think in some ways Brady is tired of it.
There’s been a presumption that Brady won’t ever be anything but a Patriot because – in the end – Robert Kraft won’t let that happen.
But Brady’s response when asked about a contract extension at the end of July was interesting because he – with a smile – invoked Kraft’s name when discussing it.
Only if they flame out in the playoffs with a frustrated Brady, I see him going to the LA Chargers. They have a ton of talent and he can make LA sign AB as well.
On the other hand, I don’t see him abandoning Jules.
If true, that's weird. I think Tom values winning above all and having the highest-paid WR's does not appear to correlate well with accomplishing that. Looking at this list, how many of these teams are SB bound?I don’t know if brady is looking for 30 million at this point of his career. It’s hard to judge his year because of the personnel. He started off well then the injuries with the OL. I would love him back but he might be fed up with this year and just move foward.

NFL's highest paid wide receivers (average salary per year):
- 1. Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr.: $18 million
- 2. Raiders WR Antonio Brown: $16.7 million
- 3. Buccaneers WR Mike Evans: $16.5 million
- 4. Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins: $16.2 million
- 5. Rams WR Brandin Cooks: $16.2 million
- 6. Vikings WR Adam Thielen: $16.2 million
- 7. Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins: $16 million
- 8. Browns WR Jarvis Landry: $15.1 million
- 9. Bengals WR A.J. Green: $15 million
- 10. Packers WR Davante Adams: $14.5 million
What is the team suppose to do if Brady wants to be a top 5 highest paid QB in AAV & guarantees? That’s three years 100 million+ to a 43 year old QB.
On the other side, should he really re-sign for anything but that for a team that left him with Edelman, rookies & next to nothing at TE?
Tom has 5-7 games left in his pats career IMO. He has a chance to break Peyton Manning’s TD record in his last regular season game & win a 7th ring in his last game.
AB was on a one-year prove-it deal at that point. Cooks became a top-paid WR when we traded him to LA.They had Cooks and AB. Cooks helped them get to a super bowl and then had is bell rung.
As for AB we won’t know what could have been, as our owner prematurely ejaculated over a few texts and a civil lawsuit.
TB is the GOAT, but he knows his success is also at least partially (I personally think more than just partially) attributed to the HC, owner, organization, system, and supportive cast of coaches. He's the GOAT partially because of the organization, not despite of it. I don't see him going to another non-current playoff team (say the Chargers like mentioned here), and takes them to the Superbowl. The supporting cast of coaches, system, and principals are nowhere to be found outside of NE, so good luck to him trying to get another championship with another team that does not already have a championship caliber QB.
If you exclude high-flying teams such as Chiefs, Ravens, Niners, Seahawks, Saints, Rams, Packers, who are you left with really?
The next tier is mid-level teams but have QBs being groomed as we speak... Bills, Cardinals, Texans, Browns, Bears, etc.
So who are you left with? Chargers? Raiders?Broncos? Colts? Giants? Panthers? Buccs? Redskins? Jets? Dolphins?.... please.... Brady as GOAT as he is, he ain't winning 5hit with any of these circus teams. Simply because it's a team sport, and not even the GOAT himself can carry a team to a championship on his own shoulders.... as a very attractive woman once said: "My husband can't throw the ball AND catch it..." - let alone run and coach the whole team.
So Tom.... I LOVE YOU! You are the GOAT! But if you think you're going to win anything with any of these QB-desperate bottom feeders dumpster fires..... good luck. No Belichick, no Patriots way, no assistant coaches and coordinators who buy into the system, no owner who would fly 2 goddamn 767s just so the players don't get each other sick.... Yeah, good luck with that. Thanks for everything you've done for this organization, but you ain't winning anything with any of those 5hitshows. I'm willing to bet my nut sack on that.
Brady's father remarked a few years ago that Tom's career in New England wouldThere's no doubt in my mind someone is feeding Curran this info which is similar to what Schefter hinted it a few weeks ago.
The question now is how legit is this info they're receiving and where it's coming from?
