    Tom Brady Expected To Return In 2018

    Sunday, February 4, 11:30 AM

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick are both expected to return for the 2018 season, according to Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter of ESPN. There has been speculation that Sunday could be Brady and Belichick's last hurrah, especially following reports of tension within the organization, which owner Robert Kraft essentially admitted were true. However, it appears both will be back in Foxboro for at least one more bite at the apple. Brady has also been pressured by his wife to stop playing, but after winning his third MVP award in 2017, the 40-year-old seems unlikely to comply. If the Patriots take care business against the Eagles, it will be Brady and Belichick's sixth Super Bowl together.

    Tom Brady Biography

    Tom Brady is a perennial Pro Bowl quarterback for the highly successful New England Patriots. He has led the team to the Super Bowl in almost every other season of his career. Brady has won three Super Bowl MVPs, 12 Pro Bowl selections and two league MVP awards.

    Many fans bid online for his autographed memorabilia, especially the number "12" jersey.

    Childhood and High School

    Sunny San Mateo, California was where Brady was born on August 3, 1977. He was the youngest of four children and the only son. As was common among boys in the Bay Area, Brady was a San Francisco 49er fan and devoted follower of Joe Montana, their star quarterback.

    Brady was fortunate to actually have been in attendance at the 1981 NFC Championship Game when Montana threw an historic touchdown pass to Dwight Clark, winning the conference title.

    In high school, Brady excelled at both football and basketball. These were the days before power rankings became prominent; however, most experts agree that he would have been a 4-star quarterback.

    Brady was chosen a Prep Football Report All-American, leading many college recruiters to San Mateo to meet him. He had a shortlist of schools comprised of Cal, UCLA, USC, Michigan and Illinois.

    College

    Brady decided to attend the University of Michigan in 1995. The mighty Wolverines were at the top of the NCAA at the time.

    The first two seasons were tough for the young quarterback. The team just had too many other stars. Brady never got to play. When he arrived on campus, Brady was a dismal seventh on the quarterback depth chart. This lack of success actually led him to get psychological counseling. Nevertheless, his team did well, winning the Rose Bowl in 1997 and a share of the National Championship.

    In 1998 things changed for the better. Brian Griese, the previous starter, graduated, leaving Brady to compete for the job with nemesis Drew Henson. Brady started every game in 1998 and was able to set a school record for pass completions. Moreover, Brady led the team to a victory in the Citrus Bowl against Arkansas.

    The next year, despite being team captain, Brady had to initially share quarterback duties with Henson. This platooning would last a total of seven games. Then, Brady began demonstrating a certain knack for pulling out victories from the jaws of defeat. Fans started calling him the “Comeback Kid.”

    Brady ended the season with an overtime Orange Bowl victory over Alabama. In the game, he threw an amazing 369 yards and four touchdowns.

    NFL Draft

    Though he had performed well at Michigan, NFL scouts did not hold Brady in high regard. The Patriots chose him in the sixth round of the 2000 draft.

    At the pre-draft combine, Brady ran a 5.24 second 40 time and leaped 24.5 inches in the vertical jump.

    As a rookie, Brady played only one game.

    2015 NFL Season

    The 2014-2015 season was one of highs and lows for Brady. He was able to win his fourth Super Bowl with a 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Brady was named game MVP for the third time. Nevertheless, the off season was full of controversy, calling into question the ethics of Brady and his team.

    In May of 2015, the NFL ruled that Brady was aware of the deflation of footballs in the previous AFC Championship Game. The deflated balls made it easier for the quarterback to throw passes farther down the field and with increased velocity. The league suspended Brady for four games, a decision later overruled by a federal judge.

    The Patriots performed well most of the year, despite the scandal and various injuries. Brady completed a career high 402 passes during the regular season. The team reached the AFC Title game but lost to the Denver Broncos, led by rival quarterback Peyton Manning.

    2016 NFL Season

    The season began with more lawsuits. The NFL appealed the court decision vacating the four game Brady suspension and eventually won. Thus, for the first four games of 2016, Tom Brady would not start at quarterback for the Patriots, something he had been doing since 2009.

    Things went basically according to script most of the season. The team made it to the AFC Championship again, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 36 to 17. In the game, Brady threw for 384 yards and three touchdowns.

    The Patriots next meet the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas. This Super Bowl appearance sets another league record for the Patriot franchise. No other team has been so fortunate to appear in nine league title games.

    Brady signed a contract lasting to 2019. His salary is now over $40 million.

    Personal Life

    Brady is married to former Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen. The two are fixtures at the annual Carnival celebrations in Rio de Janeiro.
