Maybe Troy Brown really knew something no one else did.
The prototypical Patriot said last week he thought Tom Brady would be signed before the quarterback stepped on the field for the Patriots’ preseason opener this Thursday. Since Brown said that, Brady and Patriots owner Robert Kraft went golfing together.
Kraft publicly updated negotiations Wednesday: “We’re cooking,” Kraft said.
Two words say a lot. Kraft sounds like a giddy kid who wants to tell his parents what he got them for Christmas. The tenor surrounding the Brady talks has improved to the point that we’d almost be surprised now if a deal isn’t worked out before the season.
Heck, maybe Brown will be right and there will be an agreement in the next 36 hours.
UPDATE: Here’s a follow up, with a quote from a source close to Brady.
