When you lose a Super Bowl like the New England Patriots did last season people start to wonder if the team's best years are behind them. After all, Rob Gronkowski wouldn't say if he was coming back which led many to think he was set to retire and pursue the WWE, movies, or maybe dirt bike racing.

And then when Pro Bowl Quarterback Tom Brady wasn't a regular participant in voluntary off-season workouts, there were those who thought perhaps The GOAT was ready to step aside. Being a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, I wouldn't mind one bit if TB decided to call it a day and fade off into the sunset with his extremely beautiful wife and perfect kids.

Well take a deep breath Patriots fans, ESPN claims Brady will play for the Patriots next season. He continued to stress he wants to play into his mid-40s. Brady was a little more coy when asked if he feels appreciated by Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick.
