Pats Not Anxious to Give Brady a New Deal?

ESPN reports that the Pats are in no hurry to give franchise QB Tom Brady a new deal:

The Patriots might not feel a 100 percent urgency, from a timetable standpoint, to strike a deal with quarterback Tom Brady because of the potential changes ahead with the collective bargaining agreement. One factor could be Robert Kraft and the challenging position he is in since he is a leading voice among owners in labor talks. He must balance the NFL’s interests and the Patriots’ interests and that is a fine line to walk in this negotiation. If he signs off on a record Brady deal that is similar to what Matthew Stafford received as the No. 1 pick in 2009, or Bradford is expected to receive as the No. 1 pick in 2010, he must consider how that might affect his standing as a leading voice among owners in the labor battle.
