Brady’s fire still burning. Veteran maintains enthusiasm
By Jeff Howe

FOXBORO — Quarterback Tom Brady [stats] had plenty of clout in the Patriots [team stats] locker room by the end of the 2001 season. He’s really never had to worry about his standing with the team.

But now, his veteran status is unparalleled across the NFL. Brady, who turns 35 this week, is participating in his 13th training camp with the Patriots. There isn’t another projected starting signal-caller in the league who has been with their current team for longer than 10 seasons.

It doesn’t seem like it was all that long ago when the skinny kid from San Mateo, Calif., was walking into the huddle for the first time against the Jets, seemingly in way over his head. Now, he’s in a position where many of his peers grew up watching him.
