With no Bill Belichick around to talk at the NFL owners meeting in Phoenix, it was up to Bob Kraft to speak on behalf of the Patriots. And in typically fashion, Kraft spoke his mind on various topics.

He told reporters that Tom Brady told him just a few days ago that he wants to play another six or seven years.

He told reporters that he hopes Bill Bellichick coaches into his 80's.

And, he told reporters he wants Malcolm Butler to stay in a Patriots uniform.
