The New England Patriots have indicated they are keen to sign star Quarter Back Tom Brady to a long term contract to prevent him form becoming a free agent after the 2010 season. At age 32 Brady still has several seasons ahead of him and I am not sure that they would risk going with either Brian Hoyer or Jeff Rowe at this stage, especially given the fragile nature of the current offensive line. I would expect New England to offer a 3 year contract extension and despite having a lot of draft picks again this year I would be surprised if they pick a QB given that Hoyer could progress into a starter, although if Tim Tebow is still floating around in the second or third round they may be tempted.
