ESPN's National Football League insider Adam Schefter dropped a bit of a bombshell Wednesday morning, reporting that Tom Brady had not yet committed to play during the 2018 National Football League season.
The question lingers as the draft approaches next week where the Patriots are expected to select a quarterback, the eventual successor to Brady, who turns 41 in August, but is coming off one of the best seasons of his career.
This seems to fly in the face of Brady saying he wants to play until he's in his fifties, but who knows. 'However, having said that, we're dealing with a human being.
While he hasn't reportedly committed, it is believed that he will be playing next season.

Brady has thus far missed the Patriots' voluntary offseason workout program, as he was recently in Qatar with his family.
The five-time Super Bowl champion and three-time NFL MVP is planning to spend more time this offseason with body coach Alex Guerrero. Last offseason, Brady reiterated that his goal was to play until he was 45 years old. A month later, New England lost Super Bowl LII to Philadelphia.
Meanwhile, it assures that Brady is committed to at least playing another season, and it should silence the chatter that he could be stepping away this year.
Most are still optimistic that Brady will play but acknowledged that it is still up in the air.

Currently, Brian Hoyer is the only other quarterback on the Patriots roster.
