It doesn’t appear that Tom Brady has any plans of retiring anytime soon. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Brady has signed a four-year contract extension with the Buccaneers, which voids to a one-year extension that keeps him in Tampa through 2022.
The extension saves the Buccaneers $19 million against the cap this year and locks in Brady with the team for the next 2 years. Brady has always said he wants to play into his mid-40s, and this extension will get him to his age-44 season. With Chris Godwin locked in with the team’s franchise tag and extra spending cash, the Bucs are primed to get back to the Super Bowl the next two seasons.
The new deal is voided following the 2022 season, it is done to spread money out to help Tampa sign key players to help maintain a championship lineup, much like Brady did in his time in New England.
Tom Brady reached agreement with the Buccaneers today on a four-year contract extension that voids to a one-year extension that locks him into Tampa through the 2022 season, sources tell ESPN.
