Tom Brady knows a little something about being a unanimous MVP.
TB12 was the first and only unanimous NFL MVP when he won the award back in 2010.
This week, Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry became the first unanimous MVP in NBA history, winning the award for the second straight year as the leader of the defending champions.
CSNNE.com reached out to Brady for comments on Curry's achievement. The Patriots quarterback and Bay Area boy responded via email, in part, “He is such a dominant player and so much fun to watch.”
Elseswhere, the business of the NFL is in focus. Using Danny Amendola's recent contract restructure with the Patriots as a jumping off point, the Boston Globe *looks at how the teams have all the leverage when it comes to NFL contracts. According to the *Globe, Amendola took a $4.4 million pay cut to remain in New England.
The Globe also looks at the versatility that rookie offensive lineman Joe Thuney brings with him to his new job in New England.
Patriots rookies will meet for the media in New England face to face for the first time this week in Foxborough, but prior to that the Boston Herald has a first-glance look at the entirety of the class.
Speaking of Amendola, the *Herald *notes that he hosted 18 Cathedral High students at Autodesk in South Boston on Tuesday for a preview of the Autodesk BUILD Space, which will help streamline the process of design and construction for all, including students.
ESPNBoston.com also breaks down the Patriots rookie class prior to the player's first in-person meeting with the local media.
ESPN has Football Outsiders projecting the Patriots to go 10-6 in 2016. Classic case of media disrespect for Bill Belichick's squad.
WEEI.com has Alabama radio broadcaster Phil Savage – the former Browns GM who also runs the Senior Bowl – talking up Patriots second-round pick Cyrus Jones. WEEI.com also breaks down Brady's comments to ABC, with the quarterback saying, “When you’re one of the leaders of the team, there are no days off.”
CSNNE.com takes a closer look at Amendola's pay cut and wonders if the receiver got “hosed?"
NFL.com strangely says the Redskins are the least-vulnerable defending division champion, while ranking a Patriots team that's won seven straight division titles as middle of the pack in the potential to be unseated. The ranking is apparently based almost solely on Brady's potential four-game suspension.
