New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said everyone reported to minicamp on Tuesday, including quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski. It caused a stir when both Brady and Gronk skipped voluntary workouts this spring, especially after both considered retirement after their Super Bowl loss. Everything is now fine and dandy in Patriot land, and both will be elite fantasy options heading into the 2018 season. Brady showed no signs of slowing down last year and Gronk is still one of the most productive tight ends when he's healthy.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will not be present for the team's organized activities, according to a source. After reportedly contemplating retirement this offseason, Brady plans to spend more time with his family and his body coach before training camp this summer. Even at 40 years old, Brady hasn't slowed down much and should still be considered a safe QB1 heading into what could be his final season.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady expressed his discontent with the team's coaching staff during a live interview with Jim Gray on Monday. When Gray asked if Brady felt gratitude for his accomplishments, Brady said, "I plead... the Fifth!" "The answer may incriminate me. The answer isn't easy to utter. Many people don't feel fully appreciated at work and I am one of them. But they believe they get the best results at my place of employment when they make you feel wholly replaceable no matter what you've done. So I'm going to live with that." It's not surprising for there to be some hard feelings for a quarterback and coach combination that have been together for so long, but that dynamic has worked, so it's hard for Brady to complain. However, with Brady nearing the end of his career, he's likely growing more tired of head coach Bill Belichick's tough love. In the grand scheme of things, this is just a side story in the offseason. When the pads come on and the Patriots enter the regular season, not many will remember this non-story. Brady remains a strong QB1 option heading into 2018.
