Tom Brady Signs Contract Extension With Patriots Through 2019


Quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have agreed to a two-year contract extension through the 2019 season, NFL sources reported Monday.

Brady had two years left on his contract, paying him $9 million in 2016 and $10 million in 2017. Brady’s salary-cap charge for 2016 was scheduled to be a team-high $15 million, and the extension likely will lower that number. The Patriots have about $13 million in salary-cap space this season.

The deal with Brady is not yet official and may not be for a little while, sources said. Tom Brady turns 39 in August, and the new deal gives him the chance to play into his 40s, something he has expressed an interest in doing.
