Tom Brady's frustration in New England

Posted on: July 5, 2010 9:31 pm

For a quick, rock-solid view of how the Patriots organization operates, what the NFL's uncertain labor negotiations mean for superstar players’ contracts and how it could all be leading Tom Brady to frustration in New England, read Albert Breer’s extra points cT. Brady (US Presswire)olumn.

Brady is reportedly not thrilled with his slow/non-developing contract negotiation. He has spent an unusual amount of time in California (i.e. away from Foxoro) this offseason. Pro Football Talk, adding to Breer’s article, says:

One point of frustration, we're told, comes from the manner in which the team has used Brady's willingness to take less than top dollar in the past as a tool for leveraging others in the organization (players and non-players alike) to do the same.  As we hear it, Brady never intended his decision to provide the franchise with a blueprint for squeezing his colleagues.

San Fran. / Oakland would love to have a QB like Brady.
He could even go to Arizona and be right next door to Cali.

Third place in a not so good division.....dude are you kidding me! Im a huge pats fan and hate the jets and the fins, but you have to give credit when its due. I do think the jets made it to the afc championship games if im correct. Adding marshal to the fins was huge for them. They are a grea running team and now they have a deap threat .....they will be tuff to beat. Jets have the best defence in the league and a not to bad offence either....any of these 3 teams can go 10-6....thats pretty dam good my freind...and yes the bills suck but spiiler going to be fun to watch.

I vote RickyP640 to write Sportsline articles from now on.  More accurate and engaging and showing better analysis than the self-fulfilling creations these Sportsline pseudo-journalists imagine up and try to pass as news.

This guy deserves a max contract from the Patriots, if for no other reason than his expertise in locker room reach arounds...

Tom Brady's frustration in New England

Without making this a really long post:

Tom Brady has been at most of the OTA and was at training camp this year, so what if he spends more time in Cali in the offseason.  Brady isn't a guy that needs to learn the system and can build his chemistry with the newer guys when they have organized practice sessions.  He hasn't been the super committed guy he was when he was younger, but as a proven veteran he doesn't need to be, he was there working out before OTAs and will be fine.  This West Coast issue in the offseason is a bunch of BS, because Brady is still around when need be unlike all the guys holding out this offseason.

Brady's contract frustrations is more BS.  The guy deserves to get paid, but as any knowlegable football fan knows Brady's base salary this year is $3.5M and can only jump by 30% over any given year, that means a huge signing bonus this year.  Kraft's probably have no problems with it, but any good business person would want to spread it out over several years than giving it to him in a year when there is potential of no Football the next year.  The CBA is the sole factor on why none of these big names (Brees, Manning and Brady) have signed yet and post likely has minimal to do with the teams ownership to give them the dough.

As for Richard Seymour being moved last year, he was gone after 2009 anyways, cause his contract was up and his negotiations were tough when they initially resigned him earlier this decade.  The Pats played is smart and got a 1st round pick for him when tehy knew they werent' going to sign him since they also had to work on Wilfork's deal, Mankins deal(which they did offer him a nice deal), Brady's contract and Bodden's deal. 

As for BB success.  The Krafts are a better ownership than anything he had in Cleveland, so you cannot really compare those records.  Kraft is no cheap in any way, he went out and got Parcells went to a SB, got Carroll who is not an NFL coach and we will see that the 3rd time, and then he went out and got BB.
