Brady on Hernandez to 'The MMQB'
By Mike Reiss
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is featured as part of the "3Q" series on Peter King's new website "The MMQB", in which players answer three questions and the answers are posted at 3 p.m. ET.
Brady was asked his reaction to Aaron Hernandez's murder charge.
"I’ve seen a lot of things over 13 years, and what I have learned is that mental toughness and putting aside personal agendas for what’s in the best interest of the team matters most. My job is to play quarterback, and I’m going to do that the best way I know how, because I owe that to my teammates regardless of who is out there on the field with me. I have moved on," Brady tells King.
"I’m focusing on the great teammates I have who are committed to helping us win games. The only thing I care about is winning. Nothing is going to ever get in the way of that goal. I’m just excited to report to camp and see what we can accomplish as a team. The fate of our season will be determined by the players in our locker room—nothing else."
Brady also talks about wanting to play past the age of 40 and his friendship with Peyton Manning.
