Kraft: 'No issue' with Brady's contract right now

It appears Meek Mill had a couple more famous supporters pay him a visit while behind bars on Tuesday.

"He's an wonderful young man", Kraft said outside the State Correctional Institution-Chester, via NBC10 Philadelphia. Kraft was there with his friend, entrepreneur Michael Rubin, to advocate for the release of Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams.

"Every time I see him, I just come away more impressed", Kraft said.

Following their visit, Kraft spoke to reporters outside of the facility, where he praised Meek's character while also calling for criminal justice reform. Athletes like Colin Kaepernick, Julius Erving, and LeBron James have all signaled their support for Mill, and the Philadelphia Eagles shouted, "Free Meek!" following their 2018 Super Bowl victory. "I know how I'd feel if were in the situation he is. I think Coach has been wise, and he's told players and people that you don't make any decisions, or go public, with feelings in that few weeks after the Super Bowl loss".

"He'll be 41 when the season starts", Kraft said, per The Athletic. "It's just wrong and we have to find a way to correct it and also help the community help themselves". It's just sad. This guy is a great guy.
