Wednesday. If you ask Brady, he will say that he doesn’t judge Brown on his
drama with the Oakland Raiders.
“You don’t judge anything,” Brady told Jim Gray. “I’m not judging anything before I have a chance to go out and practice and prepare.

as quickly as possible, and the clock is ticking on us right now. This is not
the offseason program. This is about real games that count and we are going to
try and spend as much time as we can together and really get up to speed and
lock in with what are roles and responsibilities are.”
