New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has said he wants his team to retain Tom Brady. But so far, Patriots coach Bill Belichick has reportedly yet to reach out to the quarterback.

The Boston Herald reported Belichick has not yet “rubber-stamped” — or even discussed — offering Brady a contract worth more than $30 million, contrary to what was rumored earlier this month. 

From the Herald: 

(Belichick) hasn’t rubber-stamped any “excess of $30 million” for the quarterback, as was reported. Numbers haven’t been discussed with the head coach. As of the beginning of this week, Brady hadn’t heard from his coach to get an idea what he may be thinking. Belichick has yet to reach out. That’s what the Herald has been told.

The Patriots are free to negotiate with Brady and can offer him a deal at any time. If the two sides can’t agree on something before March 18, the 42-year-old will then become a free agent. 

The Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers are two teams reportedly interested in Brady if he hits the market.
