With Car Accident and Contract Extension, Tom Brady Has Eventful Thursday Patriots offensive lineman Stephen Neal said it best during a pre-practice interview with a slew of reporters asking about Tom Brady's car accident early Thursday morning.

"We can't protect him all the time," he said.

Neal also joked that once he knew his quarterback was OK, he asked how the car was.

It was pretty dinged up, considering a Mercury Villager minivan struck Brady's Audi S8 after the van ran a red light in a Boston intersection. However, Brady insisted he was fine and proceeded to head to Gillette Stadium to take part in the Patriots' practice for the day.

The exciting events didn't stop there, as it was reported during the Saints-Vikings game that Brady signed a four-year contract extension worth $19 million per season with New England.
