The Patriots and Tom Brady agreed to a two-year contract extension that will keep the QB in Foxboro through 2019, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Brady had two years left on his previous deal that would have paid him $9 million and $10 million over the next two years. Brady’s cap hit would have been a team high $15 million in 2016 and $16 million for 2017.
His previous deal was a 5 year extension worth $60 million signed in 2013. It will be interesting to see the numbers for the new deal.
I’m guessing the new deal will open up room for cap space, especially since Chandler Jones, Dont’a Hightower, Jamie Collins, Malcolm Butler, and Logan Ryan are entering into the final year of their contracts.
