Tom Brady agrees to contract extension that will keep him with the Patriots until he's 42

Report: Patriots, QB Tom Brady Reach Two-Year Contract Extension

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have agreed to a two-year contract extension that will keep him on the team through 2019, ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported.

Under his previous contract, Brady had a total cap hit at $15 million in 2016, and a $16 million hit in 2017. While the specifics of Brady's new extension have yet to be reported, as Ben Volin of the Boston Globe noted, Brady's cap hit will likely go down while his cash earnings will rise.

As Schefter said, if Brady plays out the entire contract, he would be just the fourth quarterback in NFL history to play for 20 or more years with the same team.
