According to multiple reports on Monday, the New England Patriots reached a contract agreement with Tom Brady that will keep him in Foxborough through 2019.
Brady, who still has two seasons left on his current deal, will add two more seasons to his current deal and in turn, provide New England with cap relief in years to come.
Over the next two seasons, Brady’s cap hit would have totaled a combined $31 million. The new deal will likely lead to a reduction in those numbers.
New England has numerous key players eligible for free agency after the 2016 season including defensive stars Chandler Jones, Super Bowl XLIX hero Malcolm Butler, and linebacker Donta Hightower.
Should Brady play out the length of his contract, he’ll be 42 years old…and would be a Patriot for 20 years.
