Patriots owner Robert Kraft was on CNN on Thursday morning and said that he will do whatever it takes for Tom Brady to a one-day contract so that Tom Brady could retire as a Patriot.
“I’d do it tomorrow,” said Kraft when asked of the possibility by hosts Don Lemon and Poppy Harlow. “Not only do I want it, our fans are clamoring for it and to us, he always has been and always will be a Patriot…We’ll do everything we can in our power to bring him back, sign off as a Patriot and find ways to honor him for many years to come. He did so much to bring life and good cheer to our community and he’s a beloved figure and he’s earned the respect and love that people feel for him like no other athlete in our town and we’ve had some great ones.”
Brady announced his retirement on Wednesday morning.
“Tommy, I’m always here for you, you are part of our family,” said Kraft in closing when asked for a final message to his former quarterback. “I just love the guy so much and there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for him and I think he can do a lot of good things for America and reach out to a lot of people. Thank you for the time you gave us and everyone here in the New England region loves you and respects you and wants happiness for you in your life.”
Bring Tom Brady home where he belongs and get the statue ready while they are at it.
