The New England Patriots have been one of the most successful franchises in the NFL over the past decade or so as they have three Super Bowl titles and arguably one of the best quarterbacks of all-time in Tom Brady. Not only do the Patriots have one of the biggest offensive threats in the league behind center, but they also have arguably the best head coach in the league with Bill Belichick.
A few seasons ago, the New England Patriots were by far the best team in the NFL as they had an offense that could outscore any opposing team in the league and a defense that could maintain those huge leads.
Unfortunately, the Patriots were unable to win the Super Bowl in that history making season as the only loss on the season came against the underdog New York Giants in the Super Bowl which resulted in an 18-1 NFL season.
This was a huge disappointment for the Patriots, but the consensus was that New England would be arguably the best all around team in the league for quite some time as Tom Brady seemed unstoppable with two Pro Bowl wide receivers at his disposal in Randy Moss and Wes Welker.
Despite the entire league preparing for another season of domination by the high powered offense of the New England Patriots, Tom Brady went down with a season-ending knee injury in the first game of the year against the Kansas City Chiefs. Since that time, nor Brady or the Patriots have been able to dominate like they did in the 18-1 season, but this upcoming season they might have one more shot at winning a Super Bowl, but they will first have to agree to contract extension with their superstar quarterback.
Even though the Patriots will almost certainly give their perennial Pro Bowler a contract extension before the upcoming NFL regular season, three other big-name quarterbacks are set to sign contract extensions as well in Peyton Manning (Indianapolis Colts), Donovan McNabb (Washington Redskins) and Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints).
With these three quarterbacks set to sign extensions as well, the dollar amount for all of them will be measured by which quarterback signs first and even though it has created somewhat of a waiting game, it seems that Brady will be the first primetime quarterback to do so.
Terms of Brady’s deal have not been disclosed or discussed in the media, but many people are saying that an agreement between the five-time Pro Bowler and the New England Patriots is within reach.
