-- Patriots fans would do anything to keep Tom Brady with the Patriots next season and local politicians are no exception

Mayor Marty Walsh said he would give Brady the keys to the city of Boston “forever” and issued the quarterback the challenge of another New England Super Bowl appearance. 

“I think this is going to be Tom Brady’s decision, but one thing about Tom Brady is he likes challenges,” Walsh said. “If you’re listening Tom, you got knocked out in the first round, so the challenge is to get back to the Super Bowl next year, so stay in New England.”

State Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo said renaming a town or structure after Brady would be a possibility. 

“For David Ortiz we have a bridge named after him, so maybe we’ll think of something else (for Brady),” DeLeo said. “But I’m not so sure he’s done yet.”

And Governor Charlie Baker said he’s thought about giving Brady an honorary day in December.

“I think 12/12 would be a really interesting day to turn into Tom Brady Day at some point,” Baker said. “If he stays I think that’s great, but he doesn’t owe us anything.”

-- Antonio Brown is as desperate for attention as ever and now finds himself partnering with one of the most irrelevant people ever.

After Brown released his full music video for his new single, “Whole Lotta Money,” he challenged YouTube star Logan Paul to a boxing match since Paul is apparently a boxer now.

But back to the music video, it is really just terrible. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “We’d love to see him back, he’s part of this city and it’d be pretty tough to see him in any other jersey. And I can pretty much guarantee he’d come back to bite everyone in their butts. So hopefully he’s back next year.” -- Brad Marchand, on Tom Brady
