The Tom Brady free agency drama continues.
At Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party, reporters hounded New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft on whether the team will re-sign or let their long-time quarterback test free agency.
Kraft responded to Boston Globe reporter Juliet Pennington with a simple answer.
“You know what I want,” Kraft said.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has remained silent on the matter but Kraft has been more than vocal on what he claims to want above.
“We plan to,” Kraft told TMZ a month ago.
Kraft in a column by NBC’s Peter King, said that he was more than happy to let Brady test the waters.
“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 told King. “You know what I said to myself? That any person who plays 20 years for this team and helps us get to nine Super Bowls, and been really selfless, has earned that right. I love the young man like he’s part of my family. Blood family. Anyone who’s done that has earned the right to control his future after 20 years. And you know, my hope and prayer is number one, he play for the Patriots. Or number two, he retires. He has the freedom to decide what he wants to do and what’s in his own best personal interest.”
Free agency begins on March 18.
