Brady explains extension

500x305-brady20120118Tom Brady does weekly interviews with WEEI radio during the season as part of the station’s Patriots Monday coverage. As such, the familiar Dennis & Callahan guest was invited to come on the show this week to discuss the three-year extension he signed with the New England that appears to be a very team-friendly deal.

Brady declined the invitation to appear on the D & C show, but did offer some insight into his thinking in an email response to the station.

“I don’t want to talk about this on the radio or anywhere else for that matter,” Brady told host John Dennis in the email. “Athletes are always talking about money at a time when everyone else is struggling so badly to make it. We all make way more than our fair share. And I just think it reflects poorly on myself and my teammates. I really do just want to win, and that has and will continue to be the reason that motivates me and is the biggest factor in my decision-making process.”

Brady reached a reported three-year, $27-million extension this week that could keep him in a Patriots uniform through the 2017 season, when he’ll be 40 years old. It also opened up some $15 million in cap space for New England over the next two seasons.

    I think that sums up Tom Brady who is a class act and is someone who is sincerely dedicated to his team. Tom truly loves the Patriots, their fans and the New England community. I’m proud to be a Patriot fan. Tom Brady is the best in the business. Way to go Tom.

    Tom Brady is a living legend and is still active and
    strong. Think about that sentence. Kind of simple and straight forward. The beauty of it all: It’s true to life. We got arguably the best National Football
    Leagues’ Quarter Back maybe of all time up into 2017 where he will turn 40
    years young and presumably retire as one of the greats in New England Patriots
    history. And one of the greatest NFL’s
    Quarter Back for that matter of course. Lots of time between here and 2017. TB, in my very biased opinion, will be known
    in our life time as the greatest to ever play the Quarter Back position in the
    National Football League. I bet I am not
    alone on this one.

    Side Bar: 2001 –
    9/11. America was attacked. Patriots owner Bob Kraft said after the franchises first
    Super Bowl victory that,” Today – we are all patriots.” That I thought was very profound and somewhat
    underrated in terms of media awareness based on that very sentiment and obvious importance.
