FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — And then there was one.
With the Oakland Raiders telling kicker Sebastian Janikowski that they don’t plan to bring him back in 2018, only one player from the 2000 draft will stay with the team that drafted him. The player: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
And Tom Brady, the 199th decide in 2000, will quickly formally be the one member of that class that is still with his team. https://t.co/DCCWNuvSIP

With that as a springboard, listed below are just a few ideas from the 2000 draft that spotlight Brady’s endurance:
The No. 1 total decide, Penn State defensive finish Courtney Brown, performed his last common-season sport in 2005.
Linebacker Brian Urlacher, the No. 9 total decide, was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame this yr.
The Patriots’ prime decide, Hawaii offensive lineman Adrian Klemm (No. 46), last performed in 2005 and started his teaching profession in 2008.
University of Florida tight finish Erron Kinney, the No. 69 total decide of the Titans, performed his last common-season sport in 2005 and is now the fire chief in Sherborn, Massachusetts, which is about 20 minutes from the place the Patriots play their video games at Gillette Stadium.
Brady’s shut good friend at Michigan, tight finish Aaron Shea, was the 110th total decide (Browns). He performed in his last common-season sport in 2005.
Running again Sammy Morris was the 156th total decide (of the Bills), later joined the Patriots as a teammate of Brady (2007-10), performed his last common-season sport in 2011 and has been volunteering as a power coach with the Patriots in recent times.
