Tom Brady has yet to commit to playing '18 season for Pats

Tom Brady has taken less money for years, but maybe his attitude has changed. reports that Tom Brady has yet to commit to playing the 2018 season, though those close to him expect him to in fact return.

"I believe he's going to be there", a source said, as reported by ESPN. "I think the people around and the people inside that organization think that he'll play, but they don't know that he will play".

So New England find themselves in a spot where they now have one of the league's best-ever quarterbacks under contract for next season, but also the required capital needed to draft an elite quarterback that could replace Tom Brady. This year could be more important than usual given that they don't have Danny Amendola nor Brandin Cooks in the mix. "I didn't like practicing in the snow, I didn't like practicing in the rain, but that was going to make us a better football team, and that was going to make me a better football player".

Another star Patriots player, tight end Rob Gronkowski, also hasn't indicated positively whether he'll return. The action added fuel to the fire that there may be discord between the quarterback and coach Bill Belichick. perhaps stemming from Brady's relationship with body coach Alex Guerrero.

Bayless said he's convinced that Brady wants to play three or four more years with the Patriots, but not under Belichick.

Tom Brady hasn't committed to playing the 2018 National Football League season, according to a report.

Amendola and Lewis both said the contract offers they received from the Patriots were not in line with what others offered, and they didn't feel particularly wanted.

This will certainly be something to monitor, but it would be shocking not to see Brady as the quarterback for the Patriots next season.
