New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says that his quarterback Tom Brady is so special to him that he considers him to be a fifth son. He also had high praise for Brady when it comes to ranking the best quarterbacks of all-time.

"I think that Tommy, with all due respect, is better than Joe Montana," Kraft said to "I know that's a leap, but I really think he might already be the best of all time. I watch how involved he is, how driven he is. He's like (Bill) Belichick, he's into the details. And he's got a skill that makes him so special, he can process all of it so quickly. ... And then, he's just got that quality. Certain people have that sincerity. He's a very genuine guy. People can relate to him. People can trust him."
Brady is 35 years old and has won three Super Bowls and two regular season MVP awards. According to Brady's father, he believes the quarterback wants to play six to eight more years.
