The Patriots are expected to make major changes to their uniforms after two decades of sticking with their current color scheme and look, per multiple sources, and will announce them on social media shortly in April (along with their new enemies in Tampa Bay).

Brady clearly wants to chart his own path, but we're guessing he wouldn't mind following in his idol's footsteps: Montana missed five games due to injury during his first season in Kansas City but went 8-3 as the Chiefs' starter and guided the club to the AFC Championship Game. "He knows our offense very well", he said on the podcast. Relationships are what matter most to me. "But at the same time, for me the next jersey I'm wearing, I'm prepared to give them every bit of commitment that I've had my entire career to be the best I can be to help this team be the best it can be". In his introductory conference call, Brady was asked whether he agreed with Kraft's assertion that he wanted out. They haven't made the playoffs since 2007 and dosn't have a postseason victory since winning their only Super Bowl title 17 years ago.

Brady was an expert in New England at deflecting controversial questions, and he clearly hasn't lost his touch.

"I thought I had to leave New England to find what I was looking for".

"Football to me is about throwing the ball to the guy that's open". And if he's open short, you throw it there. "If he's open inside, that's where you throw", Brady said. "I think he'll bring experience and knowledge, and if he has to go out there and play, he's going to compete at a high level. That's part of the challenge".

Coronavirus: Global death toll climbs over 16,500
Italy suffered the most deaths from the disease, which stood at 6,820 as of Tuesday afternoon, according to the CSSE. Of the total number of cases, NY state tops the list with nearly 17,000 people having contracted the virus.

The 34-year-old began his career as Brady's backup in New England in 2009 and has spent time with seven National Football League teams during his 11-year career.

So, it's fair to wonder how Brady feels about doing the same thing to Patriots fans as his childhood hero did to him, and if the 42-year-old relates to Montana finishing his career elsewhere. "I'm so grateful to Mr. Kraft, and the organization, and coach Belichick and all the coaches and obviously all of my teammates".

"I'm not responsible for how other people will say certain things", Brady said. "What won't be different is my approach to the game, my approach to what my role and responsibilities are".

"There's going to be competition on our team throughout", McCourty said.
