Tom Brady/Ryan Mallett 2012 summary:
Ho-hum — another brilliant season for Brady and the NFL’s top-ranked offense even with tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez in and out of the lineup because of injuries. Brady and Atlanta’s Matt Ryan tied for the league lead by completing 40 percent of their passes for first downs. Outlook:
The Patriots recently reaffirmed their long-term commitment to Brady by signing him to a three-year contract extension that will provide him with $57 million guaranteed. Mallett could become trade bait in the 2014 offseason, which is the last year of his rookie contract. —Alex Marvez
