Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has agreed to a contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2017 season, or when he’s 40 years old, according to a report.
Brady’s deal almost assures he’ll retire a Patriot, according to Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, and will save the Patriots more than $27 million over the next two seasons.
The contract, King reports, will pay him less money over time but allows the Patriots greater flexibility.
Here are the numbers King reports:
- 2013: $13.8 million
- 2014: $14.8 million
- 2015: $13 million
- 2016: $14 million
- 2017: $15 million
Brady will get a hefty bonus for the contract extension, according to King.
