Disconnect in Brady contract talks?

Last week, Patriots owner Robert Kraft addressed the contract status of quarterback Tom Brady with us down in Dallas.

And now, we have a less optimistic view of it.

Yahoo Sports! NFL writer Mike Silver reports of a "growing disconnect" between the Patriots and their franchise quarterback. Here's the important part of Silver's story:

Entering the final year of the $60 million contract he signed before the 2005 season, Brady would seem to be in line for a lucrative extension that would make him one of the league’s highest-paid players. Yet three months before the start of the 2010 campaign, and less than two months before training camp, there have been no substantial talks between his agents (Don Yee and Steve Dubin) and the Pats’ front office, and there’s a growing sense of disconnect between the two camps.
I do know (and have been told repeatedly) that this will be a somewhat complicated negotiation, and the uncertain future of the NFL that lies ahead plays into that.

But a report of "no substantial talks" between the sides is a pretty significant development.
