Tom Brady Extends Contract until 2019 as New England Patriots QB

in NFL

Tom Brady is set to complete 20 years with the New England Patriots as a verbal agreement has been reached for him to sign a 2-year contract extension with the team. He is under contract until 2017, with the extension he will remain a Patriot throughout the 2019 season at the age of 42.

Tom will be receiving less than the $9 & $10 million dollar contract in 2016 and 2017 respectively as the team cap space after that is $13 million dollars and a few players are expected to be re-signed — linebackers Jamie Collins, Dont’a Hightower, defensive end Chandler Jones and cornerback Malcolm Butler.

Tom Brady will eventually join Jason Hansen, Darrell Green and Matthew Slater as the only players in NFL history to spend 20 years in a single team.

It is going to be hard to imagine Brady in another uniform nor the New England Patriots without Brady.

The extension would give them 3 more years to develop 2014 second-round draft pick Jimmy Garoppolo.

Mark Jackson Tactics used Ezeli against Team

in Basketball/NBA

Mark Jackson coaching style during his time with the Warriors is borderline unethical and definitely cheap. He should have focused on the X and O of the game supplemented with good motivational speeches to boost the team. However he opted for a more unconventional warrior like approach rallying his team and treating everyone their enemies. That would be fine except that he also used the rest of the warriors organization as an opponent.

In a recent article from Zach Lowe at Grantland.

“When Ezeli was injured last season, Jackson and his staff told the healthy players that Ezeli was cheering against them — so that he would look good, according to several team sources. Players confronted Ezeli in a meeting, and he wept at the accusation — which he denied.

Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob also gave short statement as to why Mark Jackson was let go despite of leading the team to a 51-win season:

“Part of it was that he couldn’t get along with anybody else in the organization,” Lacob said. “And look, he did a great job, and I’ll always compliment him in many respects, but you can’t have 200 people in the organization not like you.”

Mark Jackson have since become an analyst on ESPN and while he has shown more success that most can say, NBA team would think twice about hiring him on his inability to work within an organization.
