Social media and sports websites have been flooded this offseason with articles about Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski and the uncertainty regarding their statuses for the upcoming Patriots’ season. While questions about their future will probably continue throughout the upcoming NFL draft and beyond news broke today that should send some relief to New England as Tom Brady is “expected” to be back for the 2018 season.
Tom Brady’s agent, Don Yee, told ESPN’s Adam Schefter today that Brady is on track to return for at least another year and probably beyond.
“Tom’s intentions have not changed,” Yee told Schefter. “He’s consistently said he’ll play beyond this contract and into his mid 40s, or until he feels he isn’t playing at a championship level. I understand the constant speculation, but this is one point he’s been firm about.”
Tom Brady’s agent, Don Yee, said he expects his client Tom Brady to return for 2018 season. Just last week, multiple sources said they believed Brady would return for 2018, but didn’t know it. One source estimated there was a “75 percent” chance that Brady would be back. He is.

Brady has not reported to the Patriots’ voluntary offseason workout program, but note the key word is voluntary and at age 40 coming off an MVP season and another Super Bowl appearance I have no idea whatsoever why anyone would be concerned about his conditioning.
Rest assured Patriots Nation, the GOAT, will be on the field this season in the quest for ring #6!!
