One of the biggest problems with the NFL preseason, especially the first and last week, is that fans who pay full fare see precious little of the people they actually want to see.
But in New England tonight, fans will at least get a glimpse of Tom Brady.
Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe reports that Brady will play tonight, even if only a small amount.
The Patriots star didn’t play in last year’s preseason opener, as the lockout left the Patriots line unsettled, and they didn’t want to risk it.
In the 2010 preseason opener, Brady played two series totaling 17 snaps against the Saints.
It’s not much, but it’s something.
