    The guy has had one serious injury in his entire career and put up big numbers last year despite being nicked up with the finger, ribs, etc.  No long term injury worries with #12 whatsoever.

    I'm not saying you need to follow him around with a stretcher, but I do think he's has shown enough on the injury front to at least merit some concern with regard to the length of a deal.  That's all I'm really saying.  Yeah, I'm aware he had his 2nd best year stat-wise last year.  It's why I hate stats.  Personally, I think Brady's best year was in 2006.  Crazy, right?

    19 mil per season is a nice deal for both sides, just wish it was for longer than 3 years.  Tom and Belichick walk away after 2013?

    I don't know about Tom, but 2013 could be a candidate year for BB.  The Pats are setting themselves up for another run in the 2011-2013/15 seasons.  If he were to retire about then, and he has won one or two more SB's, he will go out in style and setup the next guy for success.  Personally, I hope he stays much longer.

    The reconstructed joints are generally stronger than the original joints.  Unless he sustains the same type of injury there is no need for caution, especially since he now wears knee braces. 

    He can either walk away after 4 years or more likely get another deal in 2014.  It's most likley in his best interest.

    Mr Kraft is a great businessman but he should put that side to rest for a moment. C'mon man !  Brady should be looking at least six years 120 million. Three years for a Hall of Fame QB in the prime of his career ? C'mon Man!

    Yeah, I'm guessing the 3 years is Brady's thing.  This way he can scale it up if the market bears it.  Plus, it three years PLUS his current year, so a 4 year deal.

    I might add that you are all assuming Tom wanted something longer than three seasons. At 36-7 years, barring injury and still performing, he could get MORE money than he is now, and still be considered "nice" about it.

    Its a four year deal.  The new money doesn't kick in until after this season.  3 years $58 mil.

    The new deal would be 3, but he'd be a Pat for 4 years.

    That d is going to have to have a shutout every night to try to make up for the horrible offense.  And please, get a clue - Sanchez is awful.

    Brady needed to be extended Revis was already under contract. Pretty lame move of the Jet FO to pull a Farve and kiss Darelle's backside.

    Sanchez isn't awful he's just not ready to lead a championship team.  It's the Jet offense that's awful.  The offense they generated late last year left the building.  The two top RBs and one of the best running OGs all gone and replaced by wet behind the ears RBs and OG.

    They extended nothing but give Revis more money, on what is essentially a 4 year deal. What exactly has Greene done?  He was supposed to be the guy last year and wasn't.  He has a worse OL and has yet to do anything for any length of time. 

    Then again who cares about the 3rd best team in the AFCE, this thread is about Brady and his new deal.

    In Response to Re: Brady and Pats Close to Deal? : Yeah, you are right on.  That was so lame to extend a contract of the best corner in football.  It was equally as lame to do the same for Mangold & Brick.  Now the Jets stuck with these team friendly contracts and great players.  Seems that you think that Shonn Greene is no longer on the Jets.  He is.  I think you'll be impressed by the way he runs forward when they hand him the ball.

    Team Friendly? You guys just paid a cornerback quarterback money. Sounds like your front office is confused. You know how this is called a "Quarterbacks  League" now? A Quarterback gives you the best chance to win. A cornerback can take away 1 player of the opposing team.

    I wasn't the smart guy who said this. Gil Brandt(The God Father) was as he shredded a Jets fan on Sirius the other night.

    In Response to Re: Brady and Pats Close to Deal? : They extended nothing?  I didn't realize Revis was already under contract for 4 years.  You are really on top of things.  Not only did they give Revis QB money, but they gave him LB money, DE money, WR money, T money, and NT money, all of which positions have players paid more than Revis, including Wilforks nearly 19 mil this year.  Seeing he has to go up against Mangold twice a year, that is probably money well spent.  Greene was suppose to be the man last year as a rookie 3rd round pick? It wasn't suppose to be TJ?  Wait a minute... is this Griswold? The way you are making stuff up is very familiar.  Do you know who else hasn't done anything for any length of time?  Maroney.  But if your biggest issues are with the running game of the NFLs best rushing team and with the guy who led the NFL in the playoffs in rushing, you have a pretty weak case.

    Couple corrections here Rex. Revis was on his 4th year of a 6 year contract so in fact they only actually extended realistically 1 extra year while spending an additional 25mil over what they owed him. So they essentially extended him 1 year for an extra 25mil. When you actually break down his contract it's averaging 11.5mil a year of which the majority is guaranteed.

    It's true Wilfork will get paid 19mil this year but that includes signing bonuses which is typical in the first year of a deal esp in an uncapped year. When assessing a contract you need to look at average over the length and guaranteed money in which it only comes out to 8mil, far less the Revis.

    When dealing with the 3 larger contracts the Jets gave out they won't hinder them if a couple of things happen:

    1: The new CBA drastically increases the cap space
    2: There is no cap in upcoming years
    3: That's all the big money they spend (hence Brady's suppose new contract, Wilfork, Moss are the Pats big contracts currently with a number of mid contracts and a bunch of lower contracts)

    other wise they are going to be in big trouble in a couple years when Sanchez comes looking for more money and they can't afford to spend it on a QB.

    As for team friendly. Any large guaranteed money is never team friendly. Being the highest paid C in the league is not team friendly. Neither is being paid as a top 3 of anything (Ferguson and Revis), however, saying that I would place all 3 in the top 3 in their positions so it's not like they didn't deserve to get paid as such. But, calling what they got as team friendly is nuts. Much like calling what Wilfork got and what Brady's about to get as team friendly.

    Just a different view on positional value really. The Jets put their highest value on a T, C, and CB (all top 3 easy) and Pats put highest value on QB, NT , and WR (only Moss being arguably not in top 3 though his numbers are hard to question that he isn't).
