Tom Brady makes it clear he wants to keep playing
Give Tom Brady credit, he’s consistent. The Patriots quarterback has maintained that he wanted to play until he’s 45, and just because he’s going to be a 42-year-old free agent in March, he’s not moving away from that stance. In his weekly interview on Westwood One with Jim Gray, Brady made it clear retirement wasn’t [more]

Gillette Stadium opened in 2002, built adjacent to New England’s former joint Schaefer/Sullivan/Foxboro Stadium. That old place was a forgettable collection of metal bleachers, a testament to ownership that lacked money and stature. Yes, an NFL stadium was actually named after a discount (and now mostly discontinued) brand of beer.
The new place was the product of new ownership, a billionaire playing the NFL’s favorite game of pitting two different states against each other for sweetheart incentives. The Hartford Patriots (or something like it) was supposedly a real possibility.
Titans send Tom Brady, Patriots to earliest playoff exit in 10 years
Tom Brady and New England were dealt a stunning loss in Foxborough. The Titans will move on to face the Ravens in the divisional round.Derrick Henry ran roughshod over the New England Patriots on Saturday night as the Tennessee Titans pulled off a stunning 20-13 upset at Gillette Stadium that could spell the end of the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era in New England. It’s the earliest the Patriots have lost in the playoffs since 2009, which also was the last time they played in the wild-card game.

The New England Patriots quarterback and the team's coach, Bill Belichick, talk about the They have lost far more than they won, endured more agony than ecstasy and been lampooned for everything Brady and the Patriots were down for much of Sunday night, but they reappeared in the fourth quarter.
Gillette was a palace built for royalty — luxury boxes and a giant lighthouse in one end zone. When it was constructed, however, no one knew who the king would be.
Then along came a sixth-round pick out of Michigan, who closed the old place in a playoff snowstorm (with help from the tuck rule) en route to winning this once woebegone franchise its first Super Bowl.
Gillette has never really known a quarterback other than. There was one year Matt Cassel filled in due to a Brady knee injury, but otherwise it’s been Tom’s playground, especially on dark January nights like Saturday when his host Tennessee in the AFC wild card round.
It also might be Brady’s last game amid the tall pines of Foxborough.
If New England can get past the Titans, it’ll travel to Kansas City, where they’d have to upset the Chiefs and then enjoy a slew of upsets for the AFC championship game to return to Foxborough.
Report: Brady won't give Patriots hometown discount
If Tom Brady returns to the New England Patriots, he does not want to sign a hometown discount with the team as he's done in the past, reports FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. Though Brady is considered one of - if not - the greatest players to ever play in the NFL, he's seldom been paid as such. He signed a four-year, $72-million extension in 2010 then restructured his salary in 2012 to clear cap room for the team. He signed a restructured $27-million extension in 2013, then inked a two-year, $41-million extension in 2016. Finally, the star quarterback was given a restructured $30-million deal in 2018 then signed a one-year, $23-million contract in 2019.
Brady is friends with President Trump. So are the Patriots’ owner, Robert Kraft, and Coach Bill Belichick. No sports team has been more closely One enduring reason the Patriots are constantly being asked about their Trump connections is that the new president is hardly shy about reminding
CLEVELAND — Tom Brady looked at no one , spoke to no one , nodded at no one as he stalked toward the New England Patriots’ locker room early Sunday morning. One fan said, “Go, Blue,” referring to Brady ’s alma mater, Michigan. Nothing . Another said, “Go, Browns.”. Not even a chuckle.
After that is anyone’s guess. The 42-year-old is a free agent at season’s end, which means he may retire or choose to leave the only franchise he’s ever known. Or could, perhaps, return for another shot, too.
Perhaps not even Brady knows for sure.
Saturday will be his 152nd game (playoffs included) at Gillette. He’s 115-19 during the regular season and 14-3 during the playoffs. Not only has no other quarterback ever won so many games in a single stadium, he’s the only quarterback to even reach 100.
The memories are endless. Brady to Faulk. Brady to Welker. Brady to Moss. Brady to Gronk. This has just gone on and on and on. The Patriots starting right corner for Brady’s first game at Gillette (Otis Smith) was born in 1965. One of his current receivers (N’Keal Harry) was born in 1997.
By the start of the 2020 season, only 17 current NFL Stadiums will be older than the Brady-Gillette marriage.
On many game days, opposing teams would pull up to the stadium through a police protected back route that slips through neighborhoods and forest and be done before they even got off the bus.
Tom Brady: “I’m motivated to get back to work”
The Patriots aren’t used to being free this time of year, and free agency’s an equally new experience for quarterback Tom Brady. So you’ll have to pardon him if he doesn’t have many answers yet. Brady made it clear to Peter King of NBC’s Football Morning in America, however, that he did plan to keep [more]
New England and Brady survived losing their top receiver, Rob Gronkowski, to a concussion in the first half on a brutal helmet-to-helmet collision Patriots in the red zone. Jacksonville then tightened things up considerably, and a sack on 3rd-and-goal from the 12-yard line forced New England to send
NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 31: Quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots leaves federal court [+] after contesting his four game suspension with the NFL on August 31, 2015 in New York City.
Eight times he posted unbeaten regular season records at home. Dallas, Chicago, Minnesota, Philadelphia and the New York Giants, among others, never beat Brady there. He’s 6-0 against Pittsburgh (playoffs included). He’s 16-1 against Buffalo, the lone loss coming when he was subbed out in a final week game to rest for the playoffs. His current nine-game home win streak against the New York Jets includes a three-game stretch where the Pats won by a combined score of 105-12.
It’s during the postseason that he’s been particularly haunting. He’s equally famous for late-game comebacks (against Baltimore and Jacksonville) and early game blowouts (over Indianapolis and Denver) that make the night feel hopeless. He hasn’t lost a home playoff game since Jan. 20, 2013, when Ray Lewis and the Ravens stunned them.
He didn’t build the place. He just made it his own like no other player in the history of the National Football League.
And that’s why Saturday will feel different than any of those previous starts — the real sense that when he charges out onto the field pregame and sprints all the way into the end zone, imploring the fans to roar, it may be for the last time.
Robert Kraft: ‘My hope and prayer’ is Tom Brady remains with Patriots or retires
There have been numerous signs this season that Brady may be on his way out of New England, but that could just be a matter of an impending free agent not ruling anything out. At the end of the day, it would be better for both sides if Brady came back for another season with an improved supporting cast. It’s unlikely that a 43-year-old quarterback — even one as decorated as Brady — is going to step in with a new team and lead them to a championship.
- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady entered Thursday night's game against the New York Giants There is nothing you can accomplish in football without everybody else doing their job. Brady reflected on being interested in records as a baseball fan growing up in the Bay Area, following
O’ Brady ’s culminating effort joined some of the most remarkable achievements in polar history, including expeditions led by Norway’s Roald Amundsen and by Robert Falcon Scott of England , who battled Amundsen to become the first to reach the magnetic South Pole.
Or that the inevitable “Brady, Brady” chants from the stands will echo around but perhaps never return.
“I’m not much for nostalgia,” Brady said Thursday, when asked about this possibly being his last game at Gillette. “I’m pretty focused on what I need to do. This week felt pretty much like every other week for the last 20 years. Just focused on what I need to do.”
Yeah, well, of course he’s going to say that. He probably even means it. You can’t put up these kinds of numbers without staying in the moment and focusing on the minutiae.
Let’s see how he feels when he’s driving to Foxborough on Saturday, or strolling in through the Gillette loading dock or getting dressed in the locker room.
“I haven’t thought about those things,” Brady said. “I wouldn’t be thinking about those things anyway.”
There is plenty to work on. The Patriots are leaking oil as they enter the playoffs, fresh off an infuriating loss to lowly Miami Sunday that cost them a bye and a divisional round home game.
Brady doesn’t lack for accolades or appreciation, but in some ways New England’s relentless domination of the NFL has hindered some perspective. After nine Super Bowl appearances and six Lombardi Trophies, there is only one goal for the quarterback and the franchise.
Anything other than everything is not enough.

Tom Brady doesn’t want you to know who he voted for. The election is over and at least one person doesn’t want to talk about it any more , even though he’d promised Just speaking with my family, it’s just a bad idea. I know, you guys, I told you I would, then after I told you I would, I changed my mind.”
Brady left for a minute, then returned with a plate of almonds and water in two blue bottles. In effect, Brady is bent on nothing less than subverting the standard expectations of how long a Soon after we met in New York, Brady embarked with his family on a pre-training-camp vacation in the Bahamas.
Yet here on another January Saturday Night, all eyes turn once again to Foxborough to watch Tom Brady lead the Patriots.
Win or lose against the Titans, that is something to behold, something to appreciate, because there’s never been a single player more dominant in a single place in the 100-year history of the league.
One more for Tom and Gillette. After that … nothing promised.
