If Bill Belichick is out of here in a year or so, which has been reported that he might be "year-to-year", should Josh McDaniels, who might be the heir apparent to take over after Belichick, take over as impromptu GM?

Ron Borges of the Boston Herald published a story late last night stating that Tom Brady want to get paid like Jimmy Garoppolo just did or he will skip OTA's in the summer. Just this morning that story has been taken off the internet and is wildly reported as false now. Jones and Joe Murray in for Cattles have some fun with the failed story that would have set New England in a frenzy.
Only 3 and a half months after the Patriots trade Jimmy Garoppolo for 1 2nd round pick, the 49ers and QB Jimmy G have agreed to a five-year, $137.5 million contract. That is the biggest deal in NFL history on a average-per-year basis. $90 million will be heading his way in the first 3 years. Cha-ching.
