Brady: Compromise the key in talks

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hasn't said much publicly, if at all, about his role as a lead plaintiff in the players' antitrust suit against the NFL. Today, as part of an Under Armour draft chat, Brady was asked if he believes there will be a 2011 season.

“I believe it," he responded to host Boomer Esiason in video viewed through UStream. "Certainly I think there are too many players and too many owners that want it. There are a lot of people in the negotiating room and I know players are looking out, not only for ourselves, but for the past players, and the owners are trying to build a business.

"I think with any of that, there needs to be compromise. I know that before now and whenever the scheduled start of the season is – whether it’s training camp or the first game of the season – I think there are going to be a lot of talks that take place, a lot of negotiating sessions, and hopefully a lot of compromise comes from that. That’s business."
