Tom Brady talks contract, explains why we 'shouldn't read into' home sale

Tom Brady talks contract, explains why we 'shouldn't read into' home sale

Tom Brady's house is still on the market. It'll cost you a cool $39.5 million if you're interested in the Brookline property. If you're not, then there's not much reason for you to be worried about the pending sale, Brady told WEEI on Monday morning.

Speaking to WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show," Brady said we shouldn't read much into his house being available.

"I certainly hope not," Brady said. "You shouldn't read into anything. I think it takes a long time to sell a house. My house is a little bit of an expensive one so it doesn't fly off the shelf in a couple weeks. 

"I think I'm at a point in my life where there's a lot of considerations that go into playing. I have a very busy professional life. I have a very busy personal life. Any decision that's made has to consider everything. I'm certainly at a place, where I've been in the same place for a long time, and I love playing for the Patriots. I have such a great relationship with Mr. [Robert] Kraft, coach [Bill] Belichick and our team. We'll just worry about that when that happens. This isn't the time to worry about it."

Brady has, of course, acknowledged that there is plenty uncertainty surrounding his new contract beyond this year. He has the ability to become a free agent next spring. As good as his relationship might be with the team, he was asked if he thinks about the possibility of not finishing his career with the Patriots and said, "You control the things you can control."

"Things that are out of your control," he added. "You just have to go with the flow. I think I'm in a great mental, emotional place to approach the season. Again, this isn't the first time around. There is no point in worrying about things like that. There are so many hypotheticals . . . This is where I want to be. This is the team I want to be a part of and leading. I'm really excited about doing that. There's really not much to read into it than that."

Report: Patriots expected to re-sign Nick Folk on Saturday

Report: Patriots expected to re-sign Nick Folk on Saturday

It's no longer a mystery who will kick for the New England Patriots vs. the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The Patriots are expected to officially re-sign Nick Folk on Saturday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Folk was released by the team and replaced with Kai Forbath prior to last week's game vs. the Houston Texans after undergoing an appendectomy.

In three games with the Patriots this season, Folk has made seven of nine field goals and all three extra-point attempts.

Patriots vs. Chiefs Week 14 injury report confirms Tom Brady's toe is fine

Patriots vs. Chiefs Week 14 injury report confirms Tom Brady's toe is fine

Tom Brady apparently wasn't lying when he suggested his toe injury is nothing to worry about.

The 42-year-old quarterback wasn't listed on the New England Patriots' final injury report Friday ahead of their game against the Kansas City Chiefs after popping up on Thursday's injury report with toe and elbow injuries.

The Patriots officially ruled out center Ted Karras (sprained MCL) and defensive lineman Byron Cowart (head) for Sunday's game, while the Chiefs will be without running back Damien Williams and cornerbacks Morris Claiborne and Rashad Felton.

New England listed six players as questionable for Patriots-Chiefs, including wide receivers Julian Edelman (shoulder) and Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (illness).

The good news for the Patriots is the flu bug appears to have stopped spreading; backup quarterback Cody Kessler wasn't on Friday's injury report after appearing on Thursday's report due to illness, leaving Cannon as the only player still under the weather.

Here are the full injury reports for both teams entering their Week 14 matchup at Gillette Stadium.
