Healed and revamped, Texans ready to take on Brady, Patriots

Despite winning five Super Bowls and becoming the oldest player ever to win MVP honors last season at age 40, Brady said he thinks there's another level he can reach.

On Thursday, the Patriots announced their six captains for the 2018 season - Tom Brady, James White, Devin McCourty, Matthew Slater, Patrick Chung and David Andrews. Which is something that's waned a bit in recent years (of continued excellence), as confirmed by the Patriot quarterback.

"My goal is to make more plays than I did a year ago ... improving my sacks and tackles for loss and everything", he said. So there we are playing in a pro-am tournament, where, as an amateur if you hit a bad shot you don't really worry about it, you play the pro's ball anyways, that's what you have him for. It'll be a challenge for me. "Interesting." But I don't think it means a whole heck of a lot, and I don't think it's something that is going to bother him. It's (expletive) going to be hard to do. "I think I'm seeing there's definitely an end coming".

"Once you stop, you're done". And I don't think they really know if they're back. "Different things come up, and decisions are made, that's why you're team is never the same at the beginning of the season as the end". "To be on this team, you've got to be a good football player".

Teammates believe he'll be able to pull it off. "I just want to do that again". Just look at him. He'll join five active National Football League players, including Larry Fitzgerald and Drew Brees, in the vast honor of wearing the Man of the Year patch on his jersey the rest of his career. On Friday, Brady was asked about first about his personal athletic trainer and business partner Alex Guerrero and then about Nike's controversial Colin Kaepernick advertisement. Some of it was my approach. I've been doing it for a long time.




"I've realized there's people that doubt the best players in the history of the game". "I'm just focused on what I want to do, and be a great football player for this team and be a good example in the locker room, provide great leadership. And that's why I'm trying to do". They hope that group is a big difference in getting this season off to a good start. I think a lot of keeping things in perspective, like nothing's that big a deal to me anymore and maybe just caring about things that really matter like my family, like people's health, like life and death.

He was limited in the Texans' OTAs this spring but was consistently available during training camp and now practices as the team gets ready for the regular season.

Offensive tackle Marcus Cannon (calf) and safety Nate Ebner (knee) were full participants.

The Texans have ruled cornerback Kayvon Webster (Achilles) out for the game.

Dont'a Hightower, Rob Gronkowski and Duron Harmon were all captains a year ago, but weren't re-elected.
