Tom Brady agreed to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a creative contract extension, per CBS Sports.
It is a four-year contract that includes three voidable years, essentially locking him in for only an extra year. Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht will certain take it, considering it secures Brady through at least 2022 and provides much-needed cap relief in the process.
The move lessens Brady’s coming cap hit in 2021 from the heft $28.38 million that was set to land, and will allow more movement as they attempt to re-sign players like future Hall of Fame tight end Rob Gronkowski.
Having already shattered a slew of records in his illustrious future Hall of Fame career, the competitive fires within the 43-year-old have not waned one bit and it’s possible he’s eyeing an even more incomprehensible mark: to own 10 Super Bowl rings.
