The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made it no secret that they want to keep Tom Brady on for a much longer time, which is why the team wants Brady to sign a contract extension with them.
Now it seems the team might just get what they want according to NFL insider Josina Anderson. It was stated that the team is ”getting closer” to finalizing a deal with Tom Brady.
“I’m told the Bucs are ‘getting closer’ to reworking Tom Brady’s contract, per source. Tom Brady will be 44 in August. Brady has said he’d ‘consider’ playing beyond 45 years old.”
Brady is currently in the final season of a ludicrous $50 million contract with the Buccaneers that he signed last offseason. Should Brady stick with the team, it will give the Buccaneers more options regarding which key free agents to re-sign.
Anderson also had the following to say:
“From what I heard, the team has a fairly ambitious list of their own guys to work through keeping. Will be interesting to watch the cap gymnastics play out for that endeavor and to see how much- the final structure on Brady’s reworked deal aids the team’s ability to do that too.
We will have to see whether Tom Brady ultimately decides to stay with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or not.
