Mon, 4 Mar 2013|
Our crew on Sports Sunday explain Tom Brady's new contract extension and wonder why there has been negative reaction by some fans.
Shaughnessy -- Maloney. Standing by here let's his revisit this quickly the Brady contract did he really take one for the team or is -- one of these. Phony baloney add up all restructurings where he didn't really give away much I think he sacrifices time I really do but I'm surprised by the number people who don't feel that way. Down I'm shocked by the by the reaction that you did. The team a big favor you know flat cap year got to reduce that cap for two years they do so this and still make some money writes -- got to raise out of it and tell me 2015 wait and see right he's got -- restructure this thing get his money. Well we don't go to -- seven million but what he did is he giveaways leverage I mean if he's. You know it's not just up to the -- to do the right thing at. You know there's not any unions in America and tell their employees -- just don't leave it up to the good graces of him eligible to the right -- at the end of the day and -- gave -- that -- and to -- that's the sacrifice guys. Never do it he's done twice to I didn't know five that this time I do believe it and again. He doesn't need it the white makes all the -- we know the story but he still players don't do it Drew Brees didn't do it he squeezed every -- he could out of them made him pay. This guy did is I think it is for the good of the team unbiased. You're -- through 2010 -- that last field. The highest paid player in NFL. You know 2010 that like the feeling good that's this one years like that it's not like he's he's always -- -- table 2010 the highest paid player he went is that. Now you have the money on the table in a five and -- and I think putting real. You left this time was again just that leverage to call his shot in two years now he's under contract those years it's really up to the Patriots would wanna keep well. I don't restructure our own -- rays let him sit there and dangle and that's.
