Tom Brady (back) is expected to play Thursday night against the Eagles.
Brady was held out of the preseason opener with a minor back injury, although it is likely he would have skipped the game regardless of his health. Brady would not be playing in the second preseason game if the back was really an issue, so it is safe to assume he is 100 percent. Aug 16 - 10:26 AM

Tom Brady (back) said he "absolutely" expects to play in the second preseason game.

Brady was held out of the preseason opener with a sore back, but the quarterback says he is fine. "I am doing really well," Brady said. "You just always have little things that you’re working through. That is part of football season, but I feel really good." If he suits up on Thursday night, Brady will not see more than a handful of snaps.

Tom Brady sat out Thursday's preseason opener against the Redskins with a sore back.

It's debatable whether Brady would have played anyway, though any injury to the best quarterback on the planet, no matter how minor, is still worth mentioning. Brady has seen fewer practice reps than normal while working through his injury, though he reportedly "ramped up" his activity at Wednesday's session. There's no concern over Brady's status for Week 1 against the Texans.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Patriots added $5 million in "performance-based incentives" to Tom Brady's contract.

It is similar to what the team did with Rob Gronkowski's contract last season. Owed just $14 million in base salary each of the next two year, Brady is making way less than he would on the open market. Schefter reports these incentives will get him closer to the market rate. The future Hall of Famer turned 41 last week.

Tom Brady isn't expected to skip training camp.

Brady was linked to retirement rumors and made some waves for his comments about playing for Bill Belichick this offseason. His training camp status wasn't really in doubt after Brady attended mandatory minicamp. Rob Gronkowski is also expected to report for the start of camp next week.
Jul 20 - 6:02 PM

Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski reported for the start of the Patriots' mandatory minicamp.

Despite all the hand-wringing about Brady and Gronk skipping voluntary practices, this was always when the duo was expected to report for work. This is hopefully the last we hear of it.

Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski attended the Patriots' Fantasy Camp on Monday.

After sitting out the voluntary portions of the offseason program, both players are taking part in the event, which allows fans to experience a day in the life of a Patriots player. Their participation is further evidence they will both attend New England's mandatory minicamp, which begins on Tuesday. Thankfully, our long national nightmare is nearing an end.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Tom Brady will not participate during OTAs this week.

It is not a surprise as ESPN's Jeff Darlington reported Brady is expected to skip a large chunk of the offseason program to "spend more time with family and body coach Alex Guerrero," but that is unlikely to stop the speculation about his future. Brady also whipped up a storm by answering, "I plead the Fifth," when asked if he feels appreciated by the Patriots earlier this month. Despite the offseason storylines, Brady is fully expected to be ready when it matters.

When asked if he feels properly appreciated by the Patriots, Tom Brady responded "I plead the Fifth."

Brady was speaking with longtime confidant Jim Gray at the Milken Institute on Monday. After his eyebrow-raising comment, Brady went on to demur and qualify his original statement but made it abundantly clear he's not getting the love and appreciation he feels he deserves from hard-nosed coach Bill Belichick. "He’s not the easiest coach to play for, but he’s the best for me," Brady eventually said. After 2017 drama and offseason rumor that Brady could be retiring, the most successful duo in NFL history will be back for 2018, likely deep into the postseason.
May 1 - 2:47 PM

Tom Brady's agent fully expects his client to return for the 2018 season.

The "Brady might retire" story appeared mortally wounded mere hours after it arrived in the world, but it now sounds officially dead. Brady forcing the Patriots' hand with Jimmy Garoppolo and then retiring would have been an all-time betrayal. It also never seemed to have an actual chance of happening. Fresh off winning an MVP award at age 40 and throwing for over 500 yards in the Super Bowl, Brady will enter 2018 remaining one of the very best players in the league.
Apr 23 - 1:37 PM

According to NBC Sports Boston's Mike Giardi, Tom Brady has continued his normal workout regimen and diet in preparation for the upcoming season, and a pair of Patriots teammates said Brady has never indicated that he plans to retire.

ESPN caused a stir Wednesday morning, reporting that Brady has "not committed" to playing in 2018. It's as if everything needs to be confirmed these days, which Brady did in February. Brady has never indicated he was considering retirement, and as the hours pass, it's looking like a total non-story. Brady is even planning normal off-site offseason workouts with his fellow offensive players. It's a near-certainty that Brady will be under center, health-willing, for New England Week 1.
Apr 18 - 1:16 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tom Brady has not committed to playing in 2018.

However, Schefter laces that with an "even though people who know him believe he will be back" statement. This has the feeling of a non-story turned into a story, but Brady is 41 years old and has a family that likely wants him to retire soon. "My money would be on him playing football for the foreseeable future," one person told Schefter. "I believe he's going to be there," another person who knows Brady said. The only other quarterback on the Patriots' roster is Brian Hoyer. New England is fully expected to use an early pick on a quarterback in next week's draft.
Apr 18 - 9:27 AM

ESPN's Jeff Darlington does not expect Tom Brady to be a "regular participant" in the offseason program.

Brady is skipping the start of workouts because he is doing charity work in Qatar, but even after he returns, Darlington expects him to skip portions of the offseason program. "He plans to spend more time with family and body coach Alex Guerrero," Darlington reports. Brady has skipped offseason work before, but his absence will do nothing to quell rumors of an unsettled locker room.
Apr 16 - 10:50 AM

Tom Brady completed 28-of-48 passes for 505 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots' Super Bowl 52 loss to the Eagles, 41-33.

In a track-meet shootout that broke the Super Bowl record for total yards by the end of the third quarter, Brady responded to the Eagles’ offensive barrage with an up-tempo aerial assault. After the Pats scored just 12 first-half points, Brady promptly force fed Rob Gronkowski four times for 68 yards and a touchdown on New England’s opening second-half drive, then found Chris Hogan on a deep slot route from 26 yards out. Brady’s third score went to Gronk on a jump ball over Ronald Darby. Down 38-33 with 2:21 left, Brady was strip sacked by Brandon Graham, then ran out of time on New England's final drive. This Super Bowl loss notwithstanding, Brady continued to keep Father Time at bay in 2017, leading the NFL in passing yards (4,577) with a 32:8 TD-to-INT ratio despite losing trusted slot WR Julian Edelman to a preseason ACL tear. 2018 will be Tom Terrific’s age-41 season, and the 2017 NFL MVP has shown few or no signs of slowing down.
Feb 4 - 10:20 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter report Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are both expected to return for the 2018 season.

There's been speculation that Sunday could be Brady and Belichick's last hurrah, especially following reports of tension within the organization, which owner Robert Kraft essentially admitted were true. However, it appears both will be back in Foxboro for at least one more bite at the apple. Brady has also been pressured by his wife to stop playing, but after winning his third MVP award in 2017, the 40-year-old seems unlikely to comply. If the Patriots take care of business against the Eagles, it will be Brady and Belichick's sixth Super Bowl together.
