ESPN's Adam Schefter cited two people who left open the possibility that Brady would not play this year, though both said they believed he would return to action.
Brady has thus far missed the Patriots' voluntary offseason workout program, as he was recently in Qatar with his family. He posted on Instagram last night after returning home.
"A pair of Tom Brady's teammates tell me they've spoken to the QB this offseason, including discussions about the upcoming season, and he's never indicated he wasn't playing/retiring".
Still, the idea of the Patriots acquiring Foles in the event of a Tom Brady retirement announcement isn't that insane. The 40-year-old has openly discussed the idea of playing until he is 45, hoping that his work with body coach Alex Guerrero will lead to rare longevity.
"He (Brady), when he leaves, if he leaves, this team will be terrible", Cowherd said.

Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said parliament should be consulted before May approved military action. Trump discussed the Syria situation with his national security team at the White House on Thursday.
Currently, Brian Hoyer is the only other quarterback on the Patriots roster. "However, having said that, we're dealing with a human being".
ESPN reported today that Tom Brady did not give "official word" that he's planning to be with the Patriots in 2018.
Brady is coming off another highly productive campaign where he demonstrated that he is still an elite quarterback, winning the third MVP award of his career while leading the Patriots to a third Super Bowl appearance in the last four years.
