Breathe easy, football fans. If you're watching tonight's preseason exhibition between the Patriots and the Saints, you can expect that the main attraction will be there, and he will play.
According to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe, Tom Brady will suit up and play tonight against New Orleans. The Globe's report did not specify how much Brady would play, but it's safe to assume that it won't be much.
Brady skipped the preseason opener last season against the Jaguars, and in the 2010 preseason opener against the Saints, he played just two series, 17 snaps total.
For those itching to see New England's offense, and in particular Brady's connection with new receiver Brandon Lloyd, they probably won't see as much as they'd like, but it will be better than nothing.
