FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Speaking for the first time at the Patriots' minicamp, Tom Brady could have had plenty to talk about had he waited a few hours.
Instead, reports broke later Thursday that one of the New England quarterback's favorite receivers, Julian Edelman, could be suspended for violating the league's performance-enhancers policy.
Brady, who turns 41 on Aug. 3, said he never considered retirement during his time away from the team; he did not attend optional workouts. He was not available to address an ESPN report, using unnamed sources, that Edelman, who missed the 2017 season after tearing his right ACL in a preseason game in Detroit, is facing a four-game suspension.
