Bill Belichick isn’t worrying about Tom Brady’s status with Patriots for 2019
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick isn’t concerned at the moment with using his mental energy to think about Tom Brady’s future with the franchise.
There have been plenty of speculation surrounding Brady’s future in the NFL, especially considering that the star quarterback will turn 42 years old before the start of the 2019 season.
So, when asked to share his thoughts on Brady’s potential decision, Belichick stayed true to his values by not speculating on the future.
Here’s what Belichick had to say about Brady’s situation, courtesy of Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk:
“Yeah, well, I mean, right now I think it’s a one-game season here,” Belichick told reporters on Wednesday when asked about Brady’s comments. “So, we’ll just concentrate on the Jets and worry about next year, next year, worry about next week, next week, worry about last year some other year.”
Brady has thrown for 4,105 yards and 25 touchdowns this season, but the New England offense hasn’t been running as smoothly as it has in previous years.
Still, Brady seems convinced that he’ll return to the field next season, and there’s no doubt that Belichick and company would welcome him back with open arms.
But before they get to that point, the Patriots will turn their attention to another possible run to a Super Bowl, as they locked up the AFC East with last week’s victory over the Buffalo Bills.
Next up is the regular season finale against the New York Jets on Sunday.
