Tom Brady Hasn't Committed To Playing In 2018 Yet

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has not yet committed to playing this upcoming season, at least, he hasn't told the Patriots his intentions, according to ESPN.com's Adam Schefter.

Sources claim the belief is that Brady wants to continue playing, but he also desires more time with his family and there are people around him who hope to see him retire. He posted on Instagram last night after returning home. But ESPN has to know that publishing a story like this and treating it as if it's big news does little more than delude fans into thinking Brady's retirement is a greater possibility than it was. The five-time Super Bowl champion and three-time NFL MVP has talked about wanting to play until he is 45, and the Patriots believed in him so much that they traded quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers last October. 'However, having said that, we're dealing with a human being. All of that might factor into why he has not committed to playing in 2018, but a fatter contract could change his mindset in a hurry. "But there's no official word Tom Brady will be back for the 2018 season".

Guerrero's involvement has previously infuriated Patriots head coach Bill Belichick but the organisation's moves in the transfer market suggest they have no intention of cutting Brady loose - even if he does miss all of pre-season.

Brady has done this numerous times in the past, and according to ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss, he and Julian Edelman were already putting in some work at Gillette Stadium ahead of this week's offseason program. He hasn't missed part of the offseason program since 2010, and he's never seemed too bothered by making a bit less money than other top quarterbacks. The report has added more drama to the Patriots' offseason.

Guerrero has also worked with current Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman and former New England pass rusher Willie McGinest.
