Rumors were swirling about the Patriots potentially drafting Tom Brady’s heir apparent this year.
But it wasn’t to be.
Instead, the team is betting on Brady — specifically that he’ll play at least 2-3 more seasons — without a young quarterback behind him for the veteran to groom.
Still, head coach Bill Belichick appears unfazed by missing out on taking a signal-caller in the draft, even though this was one of the most loaded quarterback draft classes in years.
