Tom Brady would have earned himself more than two years in Tampa Bay.
After signing a two-year, $ 50 million deal with the Buccaneers last March, running from the 2021 season, the 43-year-old Brady had his best season since 2015, winning his first Super Bowl win since 2003. Led the team.
Books general manager Jason Licht recently said the organization is now open to expanding Brady.
“It is a possibility. He certainly didn’t seem to have slowed down this year in any way, ” Licht said on “Rich Engine Show”.
“So that’s a possibility and we’ll have to see how it happens.”
Tampa Bay has a large group of free agents to hit the market in March, so they can expand Brady and save up to $ 21.8 million against the salary cap. Considering Brady has expressed a desire to play until he turns 45 – though he said he can play beyond that after the Super Bowl 2021 victory – the Buccaneers could be the team with which he finishes his NFL career are doing.
Brady’s current deal will take him to the age of 44.
“I talk to Tom often,” Lict said. “Probably keep him under wraps for now, but as I said, I know – it appears that he really had a good time winning the Super Bowl this year and likes our organization, likes our coaches Hai, our head coach, owned and we definitely love him. So usually when you are going those two things to each other it’s a match made in heaven. So we would like to continue that . “
How does Brady know when it’s time to retire?
“I think I will know when it will happen,” Brady told reporters. “I don’t know when that time will come, but I think I’ll find out. I’ll figure out that I gave everything I could to get into the game. You put a lot into it. I don’t think That I can go half-ass in this game anytime. I’ve put everything in it.
“So when I put it out and I feel like I can’t do it now, I don’t feel like I can commit to the team the way the team needs me, then I think Maybe it’s time to walk away. “
