Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti have no intention of working together to replace Tom Brady, who announced he would retire after three Super Bowl titles and a second Super Bowl appearance this week, according to multiple sources.
“I have no plan to work with Robert Kraft,” Bisciuto told reporters Wednesday.
“I’m looking forward to having a long conversation with Tom and I’m excited about going into the future with Tom, and that’s going to be our focus.”
Bisciotti said Kraft, who is a regular on the show, was the only person in the room when Brady was in tears on the sideline at the end of the game and was one of the first people to reach him.
“When Tom was in that state, it was the best thing that could have happened,” Biscei said.
“That was the most important thing that ever happened to him.
And so I just feel like I’m going to try to do what’s best for him.”
Boswell said he spoke to Kraft after the game to inform him that Brady had told him that the time had come to retire.
“Robert Kraft was the one who called me the night before to say, ‘I’m not going to work for you,’ ” Boswell said.
Biscei, who has been with the team for five years and has had his share of injuries, was not aware of Brady’s plans until after the Patriots defeated the Broncos 20-14 to claim their third Super Bowl title.
He said he did not know that Brady was planning to retire until after news of his decision broke on Tuesday.
Bosciuto said he does not know if he will ever get to know Brady again, but he would welcome the chance to have a long talk with him.
Berserkers fans booed Brady’s exit after the Broncos won for the first time since 2009.
Broussard and other fans chanted “Rob Gronkowski” during the Super Bowl victory celebration.
Brees had a big role in helping bring the Patriots to the brink in the Super Sunday game.
His two-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter, his second touchdown catch of the day and his 28-yard run that put the Pats ahead for good in the fourth quarter capped a comeback victory that was almost as big as the Super Bombers victory over the Broncos.
