Brady & Belichick won't reach deal before his free agency — Nick Wright | NFL | FIRST THINGS FIRST

  • Published: 13 February 2020
  • Nick Wright and Chris Canty react to the news coming out of the New England Patriots' camp: There has been no contract talk at all between the free agent and the Patriots' organization. Nick tells Canty why this doesn't surprise him. Plus, Canty tells Nick why he agrees with the recent Pro Football Focus take that the Patriots' poor season had more to do with weak receiving performance than the quarterback himself.

      Tom Brady had the physique and the speed of a 45 year old man, who was in pretty good shape for his age, when he was drafted! Tom is in much better shape and is far stronger and quicker on his
      feet now, than he was, for the 1st 13 years, as a Patriot!!!!
      The icing on the cake, is his experience and that chip on his shoulder!!!

        Lol hey bird man. Brady did succeed with those recievers. He went 12-4. He had a better record than Russell Wilson. With a offense that was way worse.

                Shut up Nick Wright! You give Brady guys like AJ Green, Mecole Hardman, ect Brady would have definitely been Top 10. His receivers led most of the season with drops

                  The Pats should consider Aaron Judge as a possible tight end. He has the reflexes, smarts, speed, strength, height & weight of a Gronk!.

                      I think the Brady/NE deal is already made. They're waiting for the CAP to be expanded to get the contract signed. Then the Pats can get the talents to their offense from the Draft. They may pick up a free agent tight end or wide receiver as well before the cap expansion happens. Brady is back repeat, back.

                        Nick Frost shares a lot of similarities with Max Kellerman, among which is that they're almost always wrong.

                          Drew Brees threw to one guy all year, Michael Thomas.
                          Aaron Rodgers threw to one guy all year , Adams.
                          Mahomes has 4 guys to throw to.
                          Wentz, despite Phillies injuries, still had the third best TE to throw to.
                          Every Qb in NFL has at least One go to guy, Bradys was Edelman who got injured, before it was Gronkowski.
                          You gotta have someone to go to, even with a power running game.
                          Brady is 43 yes, but he's never been athletic not at all, he's cerebral and pocket presence, brains and balls, the arm doesn't ever go, the power of the punch is last thing to leave a boxer, it's his feet, knees, lower extremities that fail you, he's got two years left, he needs an offensive line, and running game to keep defense honest, and a go to route running timing guy, like Amari Cooper,........huh, what da know, he'd be perfect for Dallas and Dallas would be perfect for him, plus Tommy boy loves the limelight and it's the most prestigious QB position in the world. That's so Jerry's style......

                              Of TB12 stays in NE it will be a mistake , just like his decision to accept low pay was
                              He could have went to 3-4 other teams and won a couple titles after he got his 4th

                                I expected more from Sanu, and I dont think tb12 has faith he will have receivers to throw to. Also Jenna rocking the red today, looks amazing girl.

                                  Got to say, and it's not a dis to Tom, that Steeler fans are rather happy
                                  he's not quite the QB he was 10 years ago.
                                  The Pats seem more like a normal team with him now.

                                          Nick for the last time just call it what it is TB12 knows the dynasty is over and he saw it coming a year ago and it has nothing at all to do with $$$ nothing!!! It is about feeling like if i had guys like Amedola and Gronk and a HEALTHY EDELMAN and a good offensive line that got space and there timing was there they would have had a good chance of continuing but BB blew it up!!!! So Tom feel like he has some gas left in the tank for a year or two that is it!!! By the way Patrick Mahomes could not have done much better than just run the ball because TB12 does not have 3 top #1 or 2 receivers and the top #1A or #1B tightend to throw to and a healthy line!!!! The Pats should have beaten the Kansas City Chiefs back in Gillette if it was not for 2 horrible calls with Harry and Gilmore!!!! FACT!!!!

                                                Eric, its hard to make an impact when you're injured the first 9 games as N'Keal Harry was. The rookies running back, give them time. The rookies will make their impact with a 43-year old quarterback.

                                                    all the offensive line and receiver trouble they had the patriots were one win away from home field and a bye , so I don't see any reason to believe they cant b better next season

                                                    nick is an idiot the patriots offense has been all about timing and precision for 20 years, if the receivers cant do the job then what can he do

                                                      Tom Brady has never impressed me, Patriots pass protection OL has and Tom Brady has always had the cleanest pocket in the NFL

                                                        Tom brady doesnt have the same arm talent as the other premier QBs. ON HIS OWN he is not as good a QB than the likes of Brees, Russ, A Rod.
                                                        However Brady's decision making an level head is almost unparalleled.

                                                        I think that Brady is a guy that cant make bad WRs good, but can make good WRs great. If he gets on a team with better skill players he will be great still.

                                                              Brady will retire in new England period

                                                                  Edleman, Harry, henry, moss, green

                                                                          • ReturnoftheBrotha

That team alone will show who was the brains behind NE, if NE cannot make the playoffs and the Bills win the division.

He missed the first 9 games due to injury. You can't compare him to Metcalf at this point. He's a timing route runner in a timing system that started 6 games at the end of the year.

                                                                                • W German
