As New England Patriots fans are wrestling with the possibility that Tom Brady will soon come back to Gillette Stadium in a different uniform, owner Robert Kraft is looking forward to the reunion.
“Excited to have him,” Kraft told TMZ Sports Thursday.
We asked Kraft how he envisioned the big game, and he said — “We ought to have a fun night!” — but I’m looking forward to Week 1 when we play in Miami.
While Kraft certainly feels excited to see Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 3, the Patriots have other games to play before they face the former quarterback.
Of course, Tom Brady will come back to Boston following Week 4 of the 2021 NFL season — the first time he will be playing at Gillette Stadium in a uniform other than a Patriots’ uniform.
Conversely, the Patriots hope for a rebound, having missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008 following a 7-9 record last season.
