Patriots owner Robert Kraft insists Tom Brady's new five-year, $60 million contract is a "real deal" the sides aren't already planning to renegotiate down the line.
"Look at our track record," Kraft implored. "We don't do fake deals. The contract we have with Tom Brady is a real contract we will both live by." It strains belief that Brady is willing to play for less than $10 million in each of the final three years of his contract, but Kraft insists that's the case. We're unlikely to get an answer before 2015.
