Are Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on the same page?

Over the past decade or so, no other team in the NFL has been as dominant a force then the New England Patriots. No matter what changes they make from season to season, no matter how old the veterans get, the Patriots always seem to put a competitive football team on the gridiron every single year.

Even though they are still considered amongst the league’s elite teams, the New England Patriots could very well be on the verge of a rebuilding process as it is uncertain how many years future Hall of Famers Tom Brady and Randy Moss have left in them.

Despite Brady and Moss being arguably on the downside of their Hall of Fame caliber careers in the NFL, they are still amongst the best at their best position in the league and can still be a lethal combination for the New England Patriots.

There have been a lot of rumors flying around as of late about the future of the New England Patriots and their superstars, but for the time being Tom Brady and Randy Moss will be in uniform next season for head coach Bill Belichick.

Obviously, this is good news for the Patriots as having Brady behind center and Moss downfield without doubt improves their chances of competing for a Super Bowl title next season, but arguably one of the best quarterbacks of all-time has had trouble negotiating a new contract with the only team he has ever played for in the NFL.

Next season is the last season on Tom Brady’s current contract and even though it is foregone conclusion that he will re-sign with the New England Patriots, for some reason the two sides haven’t been able to agree to an extension during the offseason.

One of the main reasons for a new deal not being agreed upon between the three-time Super Bowl champion and the New England Patriots is that he might be waiting for Peyton Manning and or Drew Brees to sign new deals.

Unfortunately, in this day and age in professional sports, signing new contracts can be a real headache and a very drawn out process, especially in the NFL. Holdouts in other sports like NBA basketball and MLB baseball almost never happen as players are much easier to deal with, but in NFL football, players will holdout throughout an entire season just to get what they want.

Even though holding out is definitely an option for Tom Brady, there is no way the five-time Pro Bowl will holdout as the team just wouldn’t be able to afford playing without him behind center. That without a doubt that works in Brady’s favor as the Patriots might just suck it up and pay the man what he wants, but whether or not he decides to re-sign before Peyton Manning and or Drew Brees remains to be seen.

Reportedly, the two sides are within reach of a new deal, but no terms of dollar amount have been reported just yet.
