Reports: Tom Brady in car accident

BOSTON -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was involved in a car accident Thursday morning, according to reports out of Boston. An official told The Associated Press that Brady was unhurt.

The accident occurred on the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Gloucester Street in Boston, according to the reports.

A source told ESPNBoston.com that Brady headed to Gillette Stadium after the accident. He did not require hospital treatment.

Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald told The Boston Globe that a sedan and a passenger van collided at 6:34 a.m. MacDonald told the newspaper that a traffic light was also struck.

Sources told The Globe that Brady was driving the sedan and was treated at the scene. Sources told the newspaper that Brady got out of his car but that the "Jaws of Life" had to be used to free a passenger in the van.

Brady has been in the news this week as numerous reports said he was close to finalizing a contract extension with the Patriots.

Contract discussions between the Patriots and Brady escalated Tuesday to the point where a deal could be completed before New England opens its regular season Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, a source close to the situation told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Discussions between the two sides have focused on a four-year deal. The previous two contracts that Brady has signed have been for four years, and the expectation is this one also will be for four.

The value of Brady's new contract is expected to be between $18 million and $20 million per season, which means it likely would be valued between $72 million and $80 million.

Brady deflected questions about a potential contract extension, repeatedly saying his focus instead was on the season opener.


"I don't want to get into it," Brady said during his weekly appearance on Boston sports radio station WEEI on Wednesday morning. "For me, it's the same as it's been. I'm trying to find a way to score some touchdowns against the Bengals. I didn't spend five minutes yesterday thinking about my contract or future."

Brady would like to finalize the deal this week, before the Patriots open the season Sunday against Cincinnati. This is logical. In the Patriots' opener two seasons ago, then Kansas City safety Bernard Pollard rolled into Brady's knee, injuring it and ending the quarterback's season.

"I think everybody on our team would [like to have a new deal before the start of the season], every coach would. That's not the way things work," Brady said.


One source told Schefter he thought a deal could be done this week, but it would not surprise him if it were next week.

In his afternoon news conference, Brady acknowledged that injuries have helped to shape his approach toward the business side of the game. Interestingly, he also acknowledged having four surgeries during his career.

"That's a big part of it," Brady said. "This is a physical game. I've had four surgeries in eight years -- my shoulder and my knee and my groin ... and another one, too. But, pretty much every other year you're having a surgery. Some are major ... all surgeries are major as far as I'm concerned now.

"You count your blessings when you come off the field; I think you have a new appreciation when you do come off the field, win or lose. You're trying to win every time out, obviously. But I think you also pinch yourself every time you walk off the field healthy and say, 'Man, at least I get a chance to go out next week and play also.'"

ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss contributed to this report.




And in other news, the Patriots will get 5 extra draft picks for Tom's stress in dealing with this accident.

"That's a big part of it," Brady said. "This is a physical game..." .

It won't be much longer thanks to his pansy ass.

I've had four surgeries in eight years -- my shoulder and my knee and my groin ... and another one, too...

...involving some rectal tearing and the loss of two of belichick's super bowl rings.

All part of psyching himself up for game day. What a warrior.

so the entire "car accident" was just a ruse to take him to the womens hospital and have the rest of his vagina fully installed?

There was video on TMZ and dumbass Brady just stays by his car although it looks like someone was seriously hurt in the other vehicle.

Go make sure everyone is OK, and then go get a haircut you stupid cheating douche.

i don't like Brady as much as anyone.. but i have no sympathy for people that run red lights like lunatics and wouldn't have gone over myself. it's unfortunate for the passenger laying in the back of the van, but the guy's son clearly isn't capable of driving based on his driving history and shouldn't have been behind the wheel.

The guy made a mistake hence an accident.

Get pissed later, but don't stand around with your thumb up your ass.

The driver who allegedly ran a red light and plowed into the car of New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady has a six-page rap sheet loaded with traffic violations, accidents and license suspensions, the Boston Herald reported Friday.

Ludgero Rodrigues, 21, was driving the van that collided with Brady's Audi S8 Thursday morning. He had racked up so many citations that he was forced to take a driving class in 2008 and had just gotten his license back in June from his latest suspension, the Herald said.

Rodrigues' laundry list of violations included refusing to take a breathalyzer test during a 2009 accident, speeding and driving with a suspended license in 2008 and five citations of driving with "improper equipment" dating back to 2006.
