News Blitz 4/18: Brady 'yet to commit' to playing in 2018

Today’s News Blitz includes increased scrutiny regarding Tom Brady’s playing future in Foxborough.

Tom Brady was not on the start of the Patriots offseason program Monday at Gillette Stadium.

Now, ESPN is at least posing the possibly that Brady may not even play football in 2018.

"My money would be on him playing football for the foreseeable future, but what goes on away from the football field, I don't know," one source told ESPN. "I don't know."

Obviously, the rest of the news surrounding the Patriots pales in comparison to the Brady story.

As New England's special teams captain and a seven-time Pro Bowler thanks to his work in the kicking game, Matthew Slater admits that his oppinions on kickoffs are a bit biased.

But while talking to the gathered New England media Tuesday afternoon at Gillette Stadium about a variety of topics, Slater made his feelings about the growing limitations on kickoffs quite clear.

The Boston Globe says we shouldn’t even suggest eliminating kickoffs to Slater. "I think you take away this play from football, you're taking away … you're changing the fabric of the game," Slater said.

NBC Sports Boston continues to preview the draft by position with a look at tight ends and the possibility that New England could add some “Gronk insurance.”
