ATLANTA -- There will be a number of big storylines this offseason with the Patriots.

One of those will be Tom Brady's contract.

The 41-year-old is signed through next season, but has a cap hit of $27 million. It would seem likely the team will extend him and spread out the number since $27 million is incredibly high for one player.

Appearing on NBC Sports Boston's Boston Sports Tonight Tuesday, Robert and Jonathan Kraft spoke on the matter.

"We're still in the season before, so he's not in the final year of his deal," Jonathan said. "That's really the answer to that, and let's see what happens when training camp starts."

Robert added: "I think we've done an OK job keeping things together. We're blessed to have the GOATs at each of their positions, and our intent would be that they keep doing it."

The elder Kraft also appeared to take a shot at the media for the perceived notion that there is friction within the organization.

"We have something pretty special," he said. "It's got to get refreshed in certain ways because you've got to stay relevant, but I think we're all mature. We've gone through adolescence and we've done something that I don't think any other organization has done, both in terms of performance but also in the sense of continuity.

"And we all like each other, regardless of what some of your friends in the media say of what's going on. You have daily jobs, but let's hope it keeps going for a while."
