Patriots teammates have spoken with Brady about upcoming season

Julian Edelman present for Patriots offseason program

As of this writing (around 1:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday), one of the top headlines on ESPN.com reads, "Sources: Brady has yet to say he'll play in '18". Schefter expects him to return as well, though Brady is now 41 and with other priorities demanding his attention.

Amid rumblings that Tom Brady could potentially be mulling over retirement comes a report that seems to fly in the face of all that noise. He's now away from the offseason program, something he has also done in 2008, "09 and '10. I think that the people around him and the people inside that organization think that he'll play, but they don't know that he will play - and that question lingers as the draft approaches next week".

Brady and Belichick also reportedly had issues with the former's business partner, friend, and training guru Alex Guerrero, who was banned from the team sideline and plane during the season.

ESPN reported today that Tom Brady did not give "official word" that he's planning to be with the Patriots in 2018.

Brady has not attended the Patriots' voluntary offseason workouts, which started Monday.

This will certainly be something to monitor, but it would be shocking not to see Brady as the quarterback for the Patriots next season. 'However, having said that, we're dealing with a human being.

The Patriots own plenty of draft capital (four picks in the first two rounds, including two first-rounders). Star tight end and oft-injured Rob Gronkowski has also not committed to playing 2018. Belichick, however, is averse to players dropping too much weight, according to multiple reports.

While Brady stays away - he was in Qatar over the weekend - New England is carrying on without him.
