Robert Kraft had three words on the Patriots’ plans to keep Tom Brady. The quarterback also had three words for fans who left a simple message for him in the snow.
Speaking with TMZ on Tuesday, the Patriots owner made it clear he hopes to keep the soon-to-be free agent in New England.
“We plan to,” Kraft told the site.
In a previous interview with NBC Sports’ Peter King, Kraft discussed Brady’s future, noting the six-time Super Bowl champ has the right to pave his own path after 20 seasons.
“Before the season started, it was very important to Tom that he be free to do whatever he wanted at the end of the year,” Kraft said. “You know what I said to myself? That any person who plays 20 years for this team and helps us get to six Super Bowls, and been really selfless, has earned that right.”
While Brady’s recent relocation to Greenwich, Conn. has fanned the flames that he’s essentially done in New England, lawmakers and fans alike are going to extreme levels to convince the 42-year-old quarterback to stick around.
On Tuesday, Brady took notice of a recent effort, in which “Stay Tom” was written in the snow. He replied via Instagram: “Love you All.”
