New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft spoke with a group of reporters as he left the practice fields behind Gillette Stadium this afternoon, and the subject of quarterback Tom Brady’s contract came up. Boston.com reports: Kraft was asked “anything shaking on the front with No. 12?” He responded, rushing off from the noisy area, “We’re cooking.” And when approached later about what he meant, he went silent and seem even a little confused about the context.
Brady has handled the contract situation like a true professional, and this latest comment from Kraft gives Patriots fans optimism that a deal will get struck between the two sides before the preseason comes to a close. Patriots fans can draw their own conclusions from Kraft’s silence when approached about the comment later.
