Tom Brady is expected to be among the highest paid players in the game after he and the Patriots figure out a contract extension. The deal, however, won't be an easy.
Brady briefly spoke about his situation at the Tom Brady Flag Football Challenge at Harvard's Stadium, according to Albert Breer of the Boston Globe.
“I don’t really want to talk about it a whole lot because there’s nothing anyone can solve, other that the team & myself,” Brady said. “There’s a lot of guys on my situation. So really I just wanna focus on what’s coming up this week and I’m just excited to be. Back on the field with the guys. Things happen, some are out of your control. You just gotta go with the flow.”
The reason a lot of players want long-term extensions is because the possibility of an injury always exists. If Brady has another injury like he did to start the 2008 season then his future with the Patriots would certainly be in doubt.
“Really, I haven’t been thinking about [an injury] a whole lot,” Brady said. “It’s just part of process. I love being out on the field with the guys, playing and that’s really where my focus is.”
