Brady holdout speculation dismissed as “foolish”
John Clayton of ESPN has apparently been peddling the notion that it’s a “possibility” Tom Brady could hold out of the start of training camp. In the words of our old pal Tom Curran, now of Comcast Sports New England:
“Last week, ESPN insider John Clayton threw a pile up against the wall wondering if Tom Brady would hold out from the start of training camp,” Curran writes. “We scratched our heads and explained that wouldn’t be happening.”
Clayton repeated the notion today on the radio, but Curran reports that Brady is expected to arrive in Boston over the weekend. The word “foolish” was used to describe speculation Brady would miss any part of camp.
“A ‘possibility’ gives one a pretty good amount of leeway,” Curran writes. “For instance, there’s a possibility the Patriots will invite me to camp to replace Brady if he opted to not show. But it’s a very, very slim one.”
Aww . . . we almost forgot how much we miss Tommy around these parts.
