Here are some of the highlights.

— It started with clips of Brady and his family in Qatar. The quarterback explained why this offseason was different for him, as he spent more time with his family instead of attending the voluntary workouts.

“I needed something different this year," Brady said. "My family needed something different this year.”

He added it was important to him to show his kids how much he cares about them, noting how much time he spends away from them during the season.

— Brady continued the narrative that things have changed in Foxboro and the organization.

"The last couple of years, a lot of parts of football weren’t enjoyable when they should have been," he said. "Some of it was my approach and then any time you are together with people for a long period of time relationships ebb and flow.”

It's worth noting he says this because the Patriots won the Super Bowl two years ago, and lost in the Super Bowl last year.

-- Clips of sports radio shows (specifically, Lou Merloni and Mike Mutnansky) discussing Alex Guerrero were played, and Brady seemed to indicate he doesn't care what people say about him anymore.

“They wanted to talk about a lot of drama. I'm sure a lot of teams have things like that, but ours is just to the 10th degree," he said. "You learn to deal with it better. I still just don’t give a [expletive> anymore about anything. I think a lot of keeping things in perspective. Nothing is that big of a deal to me.”

Brady added: "To worry about a lot of [expletive> that people may think or feel, I really don’t care anymore.” 

-- Lastly, he reiterated he wants to play until he’s 45 years old.

"It'll be a challenge for me. I don’t think it’s going to be easy," he said. "It's going to be hard to do. I think it’s going to be very hard to do, but I think I can do it.”
