Robert Kraft and Tom Brady are both confident their mutually beneficial relationship will continue.

Albert Breer notes Robert Kraft is confident a Brady deal will get done, but the two sides are not working with a timetable or a deadline.

"We’re very lucky to have him as our quarterback and we want him to be our quarterback for a long time into the future," Kraft said. "Everything he represents is pretty special. He’s a winner. We’re privileged to have him a part of the New England Patriots organization."

Mike Reiss reveals what he'll be watching in upcoming OTAs.  Here are just a couple:

Who are the rookie error repeaters? As former Patriots linebacker and current ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi has previously said, one thing a Bill Belichick-coached player does not want to be labeled as is an "error repeater." The rookies received an introduction to the playbook in their minicamp April 30/May 1, and this week marks the first time they are back on the field since that time, so coaches will be gauging which rookies studied their playbook during their time away.

Brandon Tate’s progress. The second-year receiver could be a big part of the team’s plans at receiver and in the return game, and Wednesday should provide a better barometer as to how far he’s progressed since being placed on injured reserve (knee) in November after playing in two games. Is Tate a full participant in drills? Is he still working his way back into shape?
