Via their Twitter account, the Patriots just released the following statement: "Caught up with Brady briefly between meetings. Reports that he's OK." That statement is their second of the day regarding the car accident Brady was involved in this morning, with the first coming at 9:21 and reading: "Patriots QB Tom Brady was in a car accident this morning. He was not hospitalized and is expected at Gillette Stadium today."

 

Speaking on his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan Show, CBS NFL analyst Boomer Esiason said that if the terms of Tom Brady's impending contract extension are accurate he believes it is, "kind of embarrassing," suggesting that the rest of the NFL players are looking to the Patriots quarterback to get a deal befitting perhaps the best player in the league. "I hope Tom gets it done, and I hope he is compensated for who he is," Esiason said.

Sources have told the Dennis & Callahan Show that Tom Brady was involved in a car accident near his home at the corner of Commonwealth and Gloucester in Boston Thursday morning.

Season finale of "Hard Knocks" and HBO is promising a twist ending. As a TV junkie I've been trying to figure out what it is. My best guess?

FOXBORO -- In keeping with last year's tradition of taking Wednesday's off during the regular season, Randy Moss was not spotted during the open portion of Wednesday practice on the lower practice field at Gillette Stadium.

 

Additionally, Terrence Wheatley, Nick Kaczur and Quinn Ojinnaka were not spotted at practice either. Meanwhile, Julian Edelman and Laurence Maroney were on the sidelines in sweats. Ojinnaka is not eligible to practice this week as he is serving a one-game league-mandated suspension for a domestic issue involving his wife in May 2009.

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady said Wednesday that a history of four surgeries has impacted his thought process as he attempts to hash out a contract extension with the Patriots.

 

“That’s a big part of it," Brady said. "It’s a physical game. I’ve had four surgeries in eight years,” Brady said. “Pretty much every other year having a surgery. All surgeries are major as far as I’m concerned.”

 

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning, in the wake of reports that he is about to sign a new contract with the team. Brady refused repeated requests to discuss the status of his negotiations but made it clear how he feels about the team.
