Tom Brady on no contract extension: Talk to Mr. Kraft

By WEEI 93.7

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady addressed the media for the first time this summer Wednesday following Patriots practice and of course, his lack of a contract beyond this year came up.

The soon-to-be 42-year-old didn't exactly directly answer the questions, but did seem to indicate owner Robert Kraft is the one who will be handling it, not Bill Belichick.

“I don’t know. That is up for talk show debate," Brady replied when asked if he deserves an extension. "What do you guys think? Should we take a poll?

"Talk to Mr. Kraft, come on. Like I said, we have a great relationship, so we’ll see how it goes.”

Some have speculated Brady could be year-to-year at this point.

“We’re all day-to-day if you think about it," he said. "None of us are really promised anything. I am trying to do the best I can do today and let those things work themselves out.”

As a whole, Brady still is happy playing in New England and specifically mentioned Robert Kraft, Belichick and Josh McDaniels.

“I have had such a great experience over a lot of years," he said. "I appreciate this team and the opportunity it gave me in 2000. I play for a great coach in Coach Belichick. Josh and I have a great working relationship. I love Mr. Kraft and his family. Just incredible success. Hopefully we can keep it going.”

Brady will turn 42 on Saturday and has a chance to play out a season in a walk year for the first time in his career.
