PHOENIX -- New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft delivered some disappointing news to AFC East rivals on Monday when he relayed that quarterback Tom Brady told him he's willing to play another six to seven years.
 
Whether Brady actually can pull that off remains to be seen, but this can't be the news that those with the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets wanted to hear. The Patriots have dominated the division since Brady became a full-time starter in 2001, winning every title but two over that span (2002, 2008) and leading some around the division to wonder how Brady's eventual retirement might alter the picture.
 
Brady's 14 division titles are the most for a quarterback in NFL history, followed by Peyton Manning (12), Joe Montana (9), Brett Favre (8), Terry Bradshaw (7) and John Elway (7). If the 39-year-old follows through on possibly playing another six or seven years, he could possibly reach 20.
 
Your thoughts, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross?
 
"Good luck," Ross answered late Monday at the NFL's annual meeting. "I love Tom Brady. He's a Michigan guy. It's OK. I don't worry about them. We have to worry about my team."

Per ESPN.com, NFL owners voted 31-1 to approve the move. The lone dissenting vote? The Miami Dolphins. Curiouser and curiouser...

I like this part . . . "My position today was that we as owners and as a
League owe it to fans to do everything we can to stay in the communities
that have supported us until all options have been exhausted,"
 
For anyone concerned about Ross moving the team, this is good.

That means the Dolphins are safe for what... 3 or 4 years? To whom is
Ross leaving the team upon his death?

I have met people who claimed Ross was in the process of moving the
team. To THOSE people, this is a dose of reality. What Ross' kids will
do is anybody's guess.

Let's see... Ross is a real estate guy... he's just invested $275 mil of his own money in renovations on a stadium HE OWNS (200 mil of it a loan from the NFL). He also signed an agreement with Miami Dade county for $75 mil in tax benefits over 15 yrs for that stadium... which specifically includes having the Phins playing there and generating revenues from such things as Super Bowls. Soooo... unless the "people who claimed Ross was in the process of moving the team" know a way of moving that stadium (along with the best wishes and blessings of several million taxpayers) I would suggest they get their meds adjusted ASAP.

Agreed. And they're allowed to vote

We likely are mostly in agreement. I suspect that I'm just not seeing any need as being so crucial as to negate BPA.
 
And I don't necessarily believe that replacing/up-grading an over paid player in a crucial position quite meets the definition of "irrelevant"... especially with several very good players likely to still be available @ 22.

So here's a tale about a guy who at least used a designated driver. Unfortunately she was just designated to be the one to take the big fall for DUI. No, the bar did not have a drive-up window.
 
====================================
 
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested early Monday morning in Dallas after a car he was riding in crashed into a bar and injured multiple people. According to a Fox 4 News report, a woman driving the vehicle hit four people on a sidewalk and injured a worker inside the bar when her vehicle crashed. Boykin, who was listed on the police report as a passenger, was arrested on related drug charges and public intoxication. None of the people hit in the incident were seriously injured. The report did not indicate what drug was in Boykin's possession. Boykin spent last season as the primary backup behind Russell Wilson. He threw for 145 yards and a touchdown against an interception in five appearances.
 
This is the second time Boykin has been involved in an alcohol-related arrest. He was suspended before the 2016 Alamo Bowl after assaulting a police officer during a bar fight.
