Patriots | More on Tom Brady

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady started working with former major league pitcher and quarterback tutor Tom House this offseason, and Brady feels his mechanics are better than ever. "The same way Tom Martinez was always there to watch and give me corrections, Tom House has told me why certain corrections need to be made," Brady said. "Look at a baseball swing and a golf swing. It's all mechanics. Look at how Barry Bonds swings. Look at how Floyd Mayweather punches. Mechanics. When you've got to fit it into the tightest windows, mechanics are crucial."
Brady will be entering his age-36 season in 2013, but he still remains one of the more consistent and successful quarterbacks in the league. At some point, though, we'll see his numbers decline, and this year seems like a good bet for that, especially with Rob Gronkowski (forearm, back) and Aaron Hernandez (knee) banged up heading into the season. Aside from Danny Amendola, Brady doesn't have as many proven weapons in the passing game. Regardless, he'll go as a QB1 in most drafts.
