Robert Kraft compares Brandin Cooks' potential impact to Randy Moss

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft did a Q&A on Monday with reporters, and it seems his franchise quarterback is feeling pretty good almost two months out from his fifth Super Bowl victory.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady doesn't plan on retiring anytime soon, according to team owner Robert Kraft.

Though King declined to comment on the possibility that Kraft has asked for helping in getting back the ring that commemorates his third Super Bowl ring - a ring Kraft said he has an "emotional attachment" to - King did say recovering the ring is a possibility. "Actually, in today's world, it was wonderful to see: The Houston police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Mexican officials all work together". "I see Warren Buffett and Rupert Murdoch in their mid 80s and they're performing well", Kraft added. It's something that he saw the quarterback maintain for his entire career - as far back as the team's first Super Bowl win after the 2001 season. And his 28-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio is record-setting great.

The Patriots and Saints already worked out one trade for Brandin Cooks, and it was believed that Butler's name surfaced in those talks.

As for Belichick, Kraft hopes the 64-year-old head coach has more than a few years in him.

King was shy to say much more on the topic, saying the case of the ring stepped too close "to the whole Russian connection".

The Patriots only traded away a fourth-round pick to Oakland to acquire Moss in 2007. The team extended a first-round tender to Butler, which he has yet to sign. The Patriots owner recently told reporters that the five-time Super Bowl champion and two-time NFL MVP could play well into his 40's. There's a major hold-up at this point, though, as the Saints don't want to sign Butler to an offer sheet and risk their 11th overall draft pick.
