Robert Kraft told CNN he hopes to sign Tom Brady to a one-day retirement deal with the New England Patriots.

For the second-straight year, Brady announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday. He insisted that he'd stick with the decision this time around.

"I'd do it tomorrow," Kraft said of inking Brady to a ceremonial contract. "Not only do I want it, our fans are clamoring for it and to us, he always has been and always will be a Patriot. ... We'll do everything we can in our power to bring him back, sign off as a Patriot and find ways to honor him for many years to come. He did so much to bring life and good cheer to our community and he's a beloved figure and he's earned the respect and love that people feel for him like no other athlete in our town and we've had some great ones."
