Tom Brady wants to give MVP truck to Patriots teammate


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2015) Tom Brady was named MVP of Super Bowl XLIX, but the Patriots quarterback wants to reward a teammate that saved the game. 

Brady's MVP honor included a red 2015 Chevrolet Colorado truck. Since he wouldn't have won the game or his third Super Bowl MVP honor without a game-saving interception by defensive back Malcolm Butler, Brady wants to share the wealth.

"I I would love to give him the truck," Brady said on Boston's WEEI radio, Tuesday morning. "I would love to do that. I’m going to figure out how to make that work." 

Butler made an interception on the Patriots' goal line in the final minute, preventing the Seahawks from scoring a game-winning touchdown. 


Four-time Super Bowl champ Brady not thinking about retirement


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2015) Before the 2015 NFL season kicks off, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will celebrate his 38th birthday on Aug. 3. After winning his fourth Super Bowl on Sunday, it was just another milestone added to a Hall-of-Fame career, and leaving many to speculate if Brady is considering going out on top and retiring after 15 NFL seasons.

Well, Brady has said before he wants to play into his 40s, and it doesn't seem his outlook has changed.

"I love doing it so I don't want it to end anytime soon," Brady said, per CSNNE.com. "A lot of the decisions I make in my life are how to sustain it. It takes a commitment in and of itself. You gotta put it in the bank as coach always says so that it's there when you need it.

"I'm still kind of in the midst of my career so I just love the game. I love playing. I love representing our team."

Brady completed 37 of 50 passes for 328 yards and four scores during the contest. Brady had some struggles during the contest, but was able to overcome. He threw two early interceptions, but remained strong as the game went on. With the Patriots trailing by 10 points, Brady was able to lead his team back in the fourth quarter.

For his efforts, Brady was named the Super Bowl 49 MVP. 


LOOK: Brandon LaFell scores first touchdown of Super Bowl 49


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2015)

The Patriots methodically matriculated their way down the field to grab a 7-0 lead over the Seahawks with 9:47 left in the second quarter.

Picking on replacement cornerback Tharold Simon, Tom Brady threw an 11-yard slant to Brandon LaFell for his 50th career postseason touchdown pass. It was Brady's 10th Super Bowl scoring toss, second only to Joe Montana's 11.

Simon was playing for Jeremy Lane, who hurt his arm after intercepting Brady in the end zone. Simon also gave up Julian Edelman's 23-yard gainer on the drive.

LaFell, by the way, was a 12-to-1 long shot at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook to score the game's first touchdown.

Tom Brady on Peyton Manning: 'I certainly hope he comes back'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) While the football world anxiously awaits official word from Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning about his playing status for the 2015 season, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady -- and longtime Manning rival -- said Thursday he hopes the five-time NFL MVP will continue his career.

"What a great player he's been for this league," Brady said Thursday, per NFL.com. "He's a great competitor, and I've been fortunate to play against him a bunch of times. I certainly hope he comes back, 'cause the league will miss him if he doesn't. But those decisions are up to him. I'm sure it's up to whether he's mentally and physically -- that's what he wants to do. But I certainly hope he's back."

Archie Manning, Peyton's father, told NFL Network on Thursday that his son hasn't made a decision yet.

"Well, Peyton evaluates things; he's pretty good at that," he said. "I can't tell him what to do, and he hasn't told me what he's going to do. But I do know that he's really giving a lot of things a lot of thought. He's thinking about where he is physically, he wants to see how he can do this some more, trying to get over an injury."

Archie added starting over with new Broncos coach Gary Kubiak will not be an issue for Peyton, if he decides to return next season.

"Yeah, but he loves Gary. He likes Gary," Archie Manning said. "He liked John Fox. He liked Adam Gase. All those things, I think, are considered with. But my deal is he's always made good decisions; he's pretty thorough. He's going to evaluate a lot of things, and I think he'll make a good decision."


Patriots QB Tom Brady expects to be 100 percent by Super Bowl


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who has been dealing with a cold for about a week, said Thursday he is feeling "pretty good." Brady is still expecting to be OK for the Super Bowl.

"I've been through it plenty of times," Brady said of having a cold, per NFL Network. "But I'm glad it happened early in the week. I expect to be 100 percent by Sunday."

Brady is 3-2 in five Super Bowl appearances. He has completed 127 of 197 passes for 1,277 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions. He also has a 93.8 quarterback rating and hasn't had lower than a 86.2 quarterback rating in five Super Bowl starts.

As of Thursday, the Patriots remain 1-point favorites for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.


Pats QB Tom Brady fighting a cold


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who's been battling a cold for nearly a week, said he expects to be fine for Super Bowl 49 on Sunday. Brady sniffled often during his news conference Wednesday.

Patriots' Tom Brady on Deflategate: 'My feelings got hurt'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) If you have been out of the loop for the last week, then you might be unaware the Patriots have been under a lot of scrutiny since the AFC title game due to improperly inflated footballs used against the Colts. The media hoopla has transformed the controversy into what we know as Deflategate.

If you haven't been out of the loop, then you are well aware of the nonstop coverage it has received the last week and despite the Patriots pleas for it to go away, it just won't.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has had to deal with the backlash from Deflategate, and he found himself talking about the subject again Monday morning during an interview with WEEI.

“It’s all speculation,” Brady said. “I’ve tried to wrap my head around it, too. I’ve done that and I’m trying to move past that, because I continue to try to rehash things. I personalized a lot of things and thought this was all about me, and my feelings got hurt. Then I moved past it, because it’s not serving me. What’s serving me is try to prepare for the game ahead. I’ll deal with whatever happens later. I’ll have my opportunity to try to figure out what happened and figure out a theory like everyone else is trying to do. But this isn’t the time for that. Honestly, I’m not interested in trying to find out right now, because we have the biggest game of our season ahead.”

One topic Brady didn't have a problem addressing was the speculation coach Bill Belichick threw him under the bus during a press conference on Thursday. But Brady came to the defense of Belichick, who has won three Super Bowls as the Patriots coach.

“I’ve never once felt that we’re not on the same page,” Brady said. “He’s a great coach. He’s the only coach I’ve ever played for; he’s the only coach I’d ever want to play for. There’s a lot of people over the years that have criticized him, but I’d say there’s not one player who’s ever played for him who’s not had an unbelievable amount of respect for him and how he prepares and his diligence and his preparation."


Patriots' Tom Brady meeting with NFL after Super Bowl 49


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady doesn't expect to meet with the NFL until after Super Bowl XLIX, according to NFL.com.

The Patriots have been in the headlines all week due to Deflategate, and it appears the situation won't be resolved until after the season. "I believe they're going to do [a meeting] after the season," Brady said. "So we'll deal with it after this game. I think everybody is locked in, ready to go for the Super Bowl." Both Brady and coach Bill Belichick have held separate press conferences during the week to deny the team's involvement in deflating their footballs. 

The Patriots are subject to punishment from the NFL if the league finds any wrongdoing during the investigation. 


Tom Brady the lone full participant for Pats in Thursday's practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) was the only full participant in Thursday's practice in preparation for the Super Bowl on Feb. 1 against the Seahawks, according to 710 AM ESPN Radio in Seattle.

Cornerback Brandon Browner (knee), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive tackle Chris Jones (elbow), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe), defensive lineman Sealver Siliga (foot) and center Bryan Stork (knee) were all limited participants.


Tom Brady: 'Didn't alter the ball in any way'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady told a jam-packed room of reporters he "didn't alter the ball in any way" for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Colts.

"When I pick the footballs out [before the game], at that point to me they're perfect," he said. "I don't want anyone touching the balls after that. ... That's what I expect when I show up on the field."

Brady said he would "never do anything outside the rules of play" and had "no knowledge of any wrongdoing" by anyone on the Patriots' staff. Brady said he likes the footballs inflated to 12.5 pounds per square inch of pressure, the minimum of the legal 12.5-13.5 range.

The NFL found 11 of 12 game balls the Patriots used in the first half against Indy were significantly underinflated after being deemed legal before the game, according to ESPN. The league is investigating and has yet to release its findings. Brady said he had not been contacted by the NFL.

Although the refs replaced the underinflated footballs for the second half, Brady insisted he didn't notice any difference. "From the first half to the second half, I didn't think twice about it," he said. "Once I approved the ball, that's the ball I expected out there on the field."

Earlier Thursday, coach Bill Belichick said he was shocked to learn of the allegations Monday morning and that he had "no knowledge of the situation whatsoever." Belichick said Brady would be in better position to address the issue.

"Tom's personal preferences on his footballs are something that he can talk about in much better detail and information than I could possibly provide," Belichick said.

NBC News reported Brady met with teammates Thursday afternoon, told them he prefers footballs "a certain way" and urged them to remain focused on the Super Bowl. In his news conference, Brady declined to say what he told his teammates.

And how the footballs got underinflated, he said, is a mystery to him.

"I'm not a conspiracy theorist. I don't know what happened," Brady said. "I have no explanation for it."


Patriots C Bryan Stork would have missed practice Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) The Patriots released a hypothetical Wednesday practice report during the bye week, with center Bryan Stork being listed as a DNP due to a knee injury.

Quarterback Tom Brady also appeared on the report with an ankle injury but would have participated fully in practice.

Five players would have been limited if the Patriots would have held practice Wednesday, including wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder, toe), defensive linemen Chris Jones (elbow) and Sealver Siliga (foot), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) and cornerback Brandon Browner (knee).

New England is a 1-point favorite against Seattle in Super Bowl XLIX after opening as an underdog.


NFL aims to complete deflated ball investigation in 2-3 days


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Troy Vincent, the NFL's executive vice president of football operations, told Pro Football Talk the league wants to quickly wrap up its investigation into whether the Patriots overly deflated one or more footballs in Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

"We're hoping to wrap that up in the next two or three days," Vincent said. "The team is in place in New England now interviewing staff members.

"We obviously want to get that on the table, get that behind us so that we can really get back to the game itself."

Vincent added fans "want to know that everything's equal. The integrity of the game is so important."

The Colts detected something unusual after linebacker D'Qwell Jackson made a second quarter interception. Jackson gave the ball to a member of the team's equipment staff, and the staffer noticed the ball seemed underinflated.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick says the team is cooperating fully with the investigation but has not elaborated on the allegation. Quarterback Tom Brady laughed off the controversy. However, in 2011 he told WEEI he likes the way the football deflates following a vicious Rob Gronkowski spike.

"... When Gronk scores -- it was like his eighth touchdown of the year -- he spikes the ball and he deflates the ball," Brady told the radio station. "I love that, because I like the deflated ball. But I feel bad for that football, because he puts everything he can into those spikes."

Patriots' Tom Brady throws for three touchdowns on Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

He was able to turn in a strong game despite Julian Edelman missing half a quarter with an injury, and Rob Gronkowski not catching his first pass until the third quarter.

Brady will take on the Seahawks in the Super Bowl.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"At this time of year, everybody’s banged up," LaFell said. "So when you think about sitting out, you think about all of them hard days you put in in camp, OTAs and you’re like, ‘I didn’t do all of that work six-to-seven months ago to sit out now.’ So no matter what injury (anybody’s) got in this locker room, they’re going to play through."

Defensive lineman Chris Jones (elbow), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) and cornerback Brandon Browner (ankle) were also limited in practice Thursday. Quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) was able to practice in full.

New England is a 6 1/2-point favorite for Sunday's home game against Indianapolis.

Report: Tom Brady restructures deal to free up $24M for Pats


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has restructured his contract to give New England $24 million more to spend in the offseason, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Under the new deal, which was submitted to the NFL on Monday, Brady changed the $24 million in "skill" guarantee to only "injury" guarantee, meaning Brady would get the guaranteed money only if he were injured.

Brady can now also be released from the Patriots without any liability, but he then would become an unrestricted free agent.
