ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that league sources say that Brady hasn’t committed either publicly or privately, but they expect he will play.
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.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 18, 2018
One source reportedly tells ESPN: “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.”
Brady has been absent from the beginning of the team’s offseason workout program, having been abroad in the Middle East for charity work. He posted on Instagram last night after returning home.
Although back in Massachusetts, there are reports from earlier this week that Brady wasn’t expected to be a “regular participant” in team offseason practices.
Aside from Brady, the only other quarterback on the Patriots active roster is Bryan Hoyer, who just inked a three-year deal with the organization last season.
