The Patriots reportedly are willing to break the bank for Tom Brady, but they might not need to.
New England is comfortable paying at least $30 million per year to retain Brady, according to a report from NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. However, Brady reportedly isn’t asking for that much money, and is more concerned with the weapons around him.

And you thought the Patriots wouldn’t dominate headlines on Super Bowl Sunday.
Additionally, the Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders both are expected to pursue Brady, should he hit the open market. Brand is scheduled to become a free agent March 18.
