Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hosted a charity flag football game tonight. Afterward, he spoke to the media.
Predictably, he was asked about Michael Silver’s recent report regarding a “growing sense of disconnect” between Brady and the team.
“I don’t really want to talk about it a whole lot because there’s

“Things happen, some are out of your control. You just gotta go with
He then was asked whether he’s disappointed about the pace of negotiations regarding a deal that expires after the coming season. “Really, I haven’t been thinking about it a whole lot,” Brady said. “It’s just part of
the process. I love being out on the field with the guys, playing and
that’s really where my focus is.”
Last time around, Brady gave the Pats a hometown discount. Since then, he apparently has realized that Boston ain’t his hometown.
