Adam Schefter: Tom Brady Still Has Not Committed to Play in 2018

Adam Schefter dropped a doozy of a tweet Wednesday morning when he stated, “Patriots’ QB Tom Brady still has not committed to playing in 2018, even though people who know him believe he will back coming season, league sources told ESPN.”

Although Schefter followed up his tweet with this, “My money would be on him playing football for the foreseeable future, but what goes on away from the football field, I don’t know.” A source told Schefter. “I don’t know.” It’s still sketchy that this is coming out at this point of the offseason — especially after missing the first few days of OTA’s.

One would think that Brady would make a decision by next Thursday’s draft so the Patriots could find his immediate successor, but who knows at this point. The Patriots have been connected to just about every top quarterback in this draft, including Baker MayfieldJosh RosenLamar Jackson and Kyle Lauletta — and they have the draft capital to move up into the first half of the first round.

Bill Belichick needs to clean up the Alex Guerrero situation and make his quarterback happy for the foreseeable future, especially since he traded Jimmy Garoppolo for pennies on the dollar.

Will the Patriots really enter the 2018 season without the greatest quarterback and tight end of all time? It should be an interesting next few weeks.
