Tom Brady's agent fully expects his client to return for the 2018 season.
The "Brady might retire" story appeared mortally wounded mere hours after it arrived in the world, but it now sounds officially dead. Brady forcing the Patriots' hand with Jimmy Garoppolo and then retiring would have been an all-time betrayal. It also never seemed to have an actual chance of happening. Fresh off winning an MVP award at age 40 and throwing for over 500 yards in the Super Bowl, Brady will enter 2018 remaining one of the very best players in the league. Apr 23 - 1:37 PM

According to NBC Sports Boston's Mike Giardi, Tom Brady has continued his normal workout regimen and diet in preparation for the upcoming season, and a pair of Patriots teammates said Brady has never indicated that he plans to retire.

ESPN caused a stir Wednesday morning, reporting that Brady has "not committed" to playing in 2018. It's as if everything needs to be confirmed these days, which Brady did in February. Brady has never indicated he was considering retirement, and as the hours pass, it's looking like a total non-story. Brady is even planning normal off-site offseason workouts with his fellow offensive players. It's a near-certainty that Brady will be under center, health-willing, for New England Week 1.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tom Brady has not committed to playing in 2018.

However, Schefter laces that with an "even though people who know him believe he will be back" statement. This has the feeling of a non-story turned into a story, but Brady is 41 years old and has a family that likely wants him to retire soon. "My money would be on him playing football for the foreseeable future," one person told Schefter. "I believe he's going to be there," another person who knows Brady said. The only other quarterback on the Patriots' roster is Brian Hoyer. New England is fully expected to use an early pick on a quarterback in next week's draft.

ESPN's Jeff Darlington does not expect Tom Brady to be a "regular participant" in the offseason program.

Brady is skipping the start of workouts because he is doing charity work in Qatar, but even after he returns, Darlington expects him to skip portions of the offseason program. "He plans to spend more time with family and body coach Alex Guerrero," Darlington reports. Brady has skipped offseason work before, but his absence will do nothing to quell rumors of an unsettled locker room.

Tom Brady completed 28-of-48 passes for 505 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots' Super Bowl 52 loss to the Eagles, 41-33.

In a track-meet shootout that broke the Super Bowl record for total yards by the end of the third quarter, Brady responded to the Eagles’ offensive barrage with an up-tempo aerial assault. After the Pats scored just 12 first-half points, Brady promptly force fed Rob Gronkowski four times for 68 yards and a touchdown on New England’s opening second-half drive, then found Chris Hogan on a deep slot route from 26 yards out. Brady’s third score went to Gronk on a jump ball over Ronald Darby. Down 38-33 with 2:21 left, Brady was strip sacked by Brandon Graham, then ran out of time on New England's final drive. This Super Bowl loss notwithstanding, Brady continued to keep Father Time at bay in 2017, leading the NFL in passing yards (4,577) with a 32:8 TD-to-INT ratio despite losing trusted slot WR Julian Edelman to a preseason ACL tear. 2018 will be Tom Terrific’s age-41 season, and the 2017 NFL MVP has shown few or no signs of slowing down.
Feb 4 - 10:20 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter report Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are both expected to return for the 2018 season.

There's been speculation that Sunday could be Brady and Belichick's last hurrah, especially following reports of tension within the organization, which owner Robert Kraft essentially admitted were true. However, it appears both will be back in Foxboro for at least one more bite at the apple. Brady has also been pressured by his wife to stop playing, but after winning his third MVP award in 2017, the 40-year-old seems unlikely to comply. If the Patriots take care of business against the Eagles, it will be Brady and Belichick's sixth Super Bowl together.

Associated Press named Patriots QB Tom Brady its 2017 Most Valuable Player.

Brady led the NFL in yards (4,577) and finished top-five in touchdowns (32), passer rating (102.8), total QBR (70.2), and completion percentage (66.3). Despite losing Julian Edelman to a preseason knee injury, there wasn’t any dropoff in 2017, with Brady leading the Patriots to 13 wins and his eighth Super Bowl appearance. Brady beat out Todd Gurley, who finished with eight first-place votes, and Carson Wentz (2). This is Brady's third MVP award after also winning in 2007 and 2010, tying him for the second most in league history.

Tom Brady (hand) had his stitches removed last week.

Brady needed 12 stitches after injuring his throwing hand at practice days before New England's conference title game, but he looked no worse for the wear in a win over Jacksonville. He's been removed from the injury report and will be all systems go for next week's Super Bowl in Minneapolis.

Tom Brady (hand) has been removed from the injury report.

Brady's hand injury was a non-issue in the AFC Championship. He's expected to get his stitches removed this week. Brady will be 100 percent for the Super Bowl.

Former NFL kicker Jay Feely said Gisele Bundchen asked him to convince Tom Brady to retire after last season.

Feely, a college teammate of Brady's at the University of Michigan, wasn't much help, advising the five-time Super Bowl champ to "play as long as [he] can." It's not the first time Bundchen has expressed this sentiment as Brady admitted his wife begged him to hang up his cleats after defeating the Falcons in last year's Super Bowl. Brady may have hid a concussion in 2016 and has battled various injuries throughout this season, though he still turned in another MVP-caliber year. Despite his wife's wishes, there's no indication the 40-year-old has any desire to call it quits.

Tom Brady said he will get the stitches in his hand removed this week.

The gash did not end up affecting his play in the AFC Championship Game, but it sounds like he narrowly missed suffering a serious injury. "I was fortunate not to tear any ligaments or anything like that," Brady said on the "Kirk and Callahan" radio show. "It turned out to be a lot good luck it wasn't more serious than it was." Brady should be 100 percent for the Super Bowl.

Tom Brady completed 26-of-38 passes for 290 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' 24-20, AFC Championship Game win over the Jaguars.

Beset by a throwing hand injury, ongoing palace intrigue in New England, and the first half loss of Rob Gronkowski to a concussion, Brady and the Pats survived an early onslaught from the Jags' elite defense to rally from a 14-3 deficit and reach the eighth Super Bowl of the Bill Belichick era. Although occasionally skittish in the pocket, Brady mostly stood tall after the break, finding Danny Amendola for the game-winning touchdown with a beautiful throw to the back of the end zone with 2:48 remaining. Neither his hand nor age were an issue. Whoever New England faces in Super Bowl LII will present a defensive challenge just one step down from the Jags' league-best unit.

Tom Brady (hand) is active for the AFC Championship Game.

There was never much doubt he would play, but it is now official. Brady reportedly threw the ball "incredibly well" during Friday's practice, and he was not wearing a glove on his throwing hand during pre-game warmups. Ultimately, Jacksonville's ability to get pressure, especially up the middle, will play a much larger role in Brady's success than this injury.
Jan 21 - 1:36 PM

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Tom Brady will "probably" wear a glove on his injured right hand in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Jaguars.

Multiple sources including ESPN's Dianna Russini have confirmed that Brady will start Sunday's AFC title game despite missing practice time with a cut that required four stitches. Some quarterbacks use gloves for a better grip—Teddy Bridgewater, Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner are notable examples—though Brady has never worn one on his throwing hand. Athletes are creatures of habit and any change to their routine is significant, though most reports suggest Brady looked like his normal self at practice on Friday and shouldn't be limited at all against Jacksonville.
Jan 21 - 9:06 AM

The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe reports Tom Brady's injured right hand is expected to be "just fine" for Sunday's AFC Championship game.

Various other reporters have echoed the same sentiment. It's believed Brady suffered a cut on his hand in Wednesday's practice significant enough that he required stitches, but Howe says TB12 underwent "thorough" treatment the rest of the week, allowing the hand to heal properly. Brady is still expected to sport a glove on the hand in an attempt to prevent any further injury, but he should be near 100 percent versus Jacksonville.
