Latest NFL mock draft has New England drafting Tom Brady’s possible replacement

The 2019 NFL draft is fast approaching. With names like Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa and Josh Allen available, it seems likely we already know how the first few selections of the first round will go on April 25. 

But what about the rest of the picks?

A top-heavy draft class doesn’t mean some diamonds in the rough won’t be found further down in the draft. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, selected No. 199 overall in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft, is evidence of that — and this year, the Patriots may draft his heir apparent.

Packers star Clay Matthews hopes controversial calls in playoffs will spur change

As fans of the New Orleans Saints know all too well, one flag – or a flag not thrown – can completely alter the course of a season.

By now everyone has seen or heard about the blown call during the NFC championship game between those Saints and the Super Bowl-bound Los Angeles Rams. The NFL has admitted that the refs made a mistake and subsequently fined Rams defender Nickell Robey-Coleman for targeting on the play.

However, no amount of apologizing can halt what has already begun – a demand for the NFL to change the rules surrounding pass interference. And unfortunately for the league, that wasn’t the only questionable rule or play that the masses took notice of during championship weekend.

During the AFC championship game, Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones was penalized for roughing the passer after grazing the face mask of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The Patriots were able to continue the drive and score a touchdown.

The call looked all too familiar to Clay Matthews of the Green Bay Packers.

Tom Brady listed as underdog for first time since 2015

On September 20, 2015, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were listed as underdogs going into their game against the Buffalo Bills.

That ends a streak of 67 starts, 174 weeks and 1,278 days as the betting favorite for Brady.

During Sunday’s 24-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reached a milestone he’s been working towards for nearly two decades — 1,000 total rushing yards. 

As is tradition with Brady, he took to Instagram after the victory to celebrate. 

“The only reason I’ve been playing 19 years is to get to that 1,000 yards,” he said in a clip posted to his account Monday afternoon. 

And then, as he climbed into his car, Brady uttered the words that will send chills down the spines of Patriots fans everywhere: “That’s it. I’m out. Time to ride off into the sunset.”

Former NFL coach under fire for his ranking of 10 best quarterbacks since 1978

In the history of professional quarterbacks, Peyton Manning has the most touchdown passes. Aaron Rodgers has the highest passer rating. Tom Brady has the most Super Bowl rings.

But who’s the best player overall?

A group of 10 NFL coaches and executives all submitted their votes for their top quarterbacks since 1978 — but the selection process was not as unanimous as you’d believe.

Exclusive country club finally allows membership to neighbors Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen

You can’t always get what you want — even if you’re Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen.

The famous couple reside in Brookline, Massachusetts, right next door to an exclusive country club (actually called The Country Club), to which they applied for membership in 2015.

The club, however, denied Brady and Bundchen entry. According to The Boston Globe, The Country Club is “famous for understatement and insularity,” and a pair as high-profile as the quarterback and supermodel could cause a problem.

It was suggested that Brady reapply after his retirement from the NFL — which we all know probably isn’t happening any time soon.
