Tom Brady only wants to play for Patriots
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was adamant that he only wants to play for one team in his career.
Following several reports of tension before a blowout win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Brady spoke his mind.
“I love the Patriots,” Brady said. “I always say it, and I say it time and time again, there is no place I’d rather play, there is no place I’d rather be. I play for the greatest owner and, to me, the greatest coach of all time.
“So, my family is in Boston. We’ve been such a part of this community and we love it. I just want to do the best job I can and the best job for my teammates, my coaches, for everybody that supports me. So that’s where my focus is and that’s where it always will be. So that’s how I feel about it.”
It was noted to Brady that Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and Joe Montana had to play for other teams in their careers.
“Well, everybody’s circumstances are different,” Brady said. “The NFL is very unpredictable, so pro sports in general, they are all unpredictable. If Michael Jordan could end on another team and Joe Montana could end on another team and LeBron James could switch teams, . . . you look at all these phenomenal players that have switched teams.
“Now, my goal is certainly not to do that. But those things aren’t always in my control. I would love to be here for as long as possible. Hopefully through the end of my career. And certainly this year is the only one that matters because that’s all that we have in front of us. That’s the only one we can do something about.”
