The New England Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady are reportedly closing in on a contract extension with the NFL regular season just around the corner. When asked about the pending negotiations, Brady chose to avoid the topic while holding the Cincinnati Bengals as his number one priority. “The reality is I have a job to do and my job isn’t revolved around worrying about what my future is right now,” he said. “My job is to be the best leader for this team that I can be, and really to get ready to play the Bengals, and play really well. Because of that, I think it’s pretty selfish if I sit here and that’s all I’m worried about — myself.”
Veteran wide-out Randy Moss recently expressed his feelings in regards to contract issues with the Patriots. The 7x Pro Bowler caught 83 passes for 1,264 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. “We’re glad he’s here from the game on Sunday and that’s what we’re worried about,” said team director of play personnel Nick Caserio. “He’s going to help our football team, I’m sure. That’s what we’re focused on right now.” Patriots vs. Bengals kickoff is set for September 12th at 1:00 PM in Foxboro.
