Report: Tom Brady extension is imminent

It looks like Tom Brady won’t have to play in his contract year without the security of a long-term deal.

The Boston Herald is reporting via Karen Guregian and Ron Borges that a contract extension between the Patriots and Tom Brady is “imminent.”

The parameters: A three-year, $58 million extension.  (His 2010 money would apparently stay the same at $6.5 million, making it a four-year, $64.5 million deal.)

The paper cautions that the deal isn’t formally agreed to by Brady’s camp (sorta a big part of the equation), but a deal “could be in place within the next 24 hours.”

It’s hard to evaluate the money terms without knowing more but a relatively short-term, big money deal makes a lot of sense for both sides. 

UPDATE: The radio station WEEI also reported the imminent deal.  Tom Brady and Robert Kraft reportedly spent time together in Cape Cod this weekend.

  1. Both sides wanted to get this done before the season. Tom is healthy and wealthy and is going to have a monster year.

  2. Hopefully he’ll get enough money so he can get a haircut and stop trying to be a justin beiber look-a-like.

  3. Four year 64.5 million dollar deal, but how much is GAURANTEED MONEY. That is really the only number that really matters in an NFL contract. Hope Brady got atleast 30-40 million gauranteed or the Pats low balled him again.

  4. Where is Nate is Gay for Brady on this post? I figured he would be dying to get on here and tell us he wants to tune Tom Brady’s meatwhistle.

  5. UPDATE: The radio station WEEI was first to report the imminent deal. Tom Brady and Robert Kraft reportedly spent time together in Cape Cod this weekend.
    ==================================
    massaging their ego’s and sharing some lobster over a bottle of white wine……….

  6. Mrs. Kraft has spoken so Tom gets his extension and rightfully so, now if only we can work out a nice short term extension for Moss

  7. The Patriots should put a clause in the contract that he gets a haircut. I’m a Steeler fan…and I’m embarressed for Pats fans… I can imagine how they feel.

  8. It doesn’t make it a “four year 64.5 million deal”. It is a 3 year $58 million dollar deal that starts next year and works out to $19.3 million annually.
    From the Herald:
    “While this could be portrayed as a four-year, $64 million deal, that’s not the reality of it, according to the source. Brady would not accept a deal that pays him less per year than Eli Manning, who is making $16.4 million per season.”
    Get your facts str8 dude and don’t make stupid assumptions. Brady’s deal is going to be the new bar for Elite QB’s such as Manning, who will be signing soon. Calling it a 4 year $64MM deal is inaccurate and irresponsible for a journalist that supposedly knows a thing or two about football.

  9. UPDATE: The radio station WEEI also reported the imminent deal. Tom Brady and Robert Kraft reportedly spent time together in Cape Cod this weekend.
    Not that there’s anything wrong with that. . . .
    I hope his new contract includes a clause prohibiting Tom from looking like Justin Beiber.

  10. Actually I heard they got the deal done on ACK. To match his new hair style, Brady headed to Murray’s to pick up some Nantucket Reds and a new Madras Blazer. Rumor is that he was at the White Elephant and got tossed because the staff thought he was some Deerfield kid spending daddy’s coin. He then hopped in a Defender with an oversand permit and tons of stickers.

  11. What…I though he was going to Frisco, or he and Moss wanted to go to the Vikings……….
    Come on we all knew this was gonna happen sooner or later.
    Its about time.

    What do you care? If Brady is happy, that is that.

  13. Should we be worried that notorious Kraft/Belichick hater Ron Borges is involved here? It could be a practical joke to embarrass the Pats!
    Hey, Borgie, what color is the hair this week???

    So….just so I’m clear…. stupid Steelers fan that has a QB that rapes chicks in bathrooms and get’s “De-captained” by his teammates is embarrassed for us over Brady’s haircut??
    LOL
    Save your sympathy dude. Brady can grow his hair down past his behind and we’ll all love him just as much as we did when he has one every meaningful game against the Steelers in the last decade. How bout we’ll be embarrassed for you for the 2001 and 2004 AFC Championship debacles (hope you weren’t one of the idiots that had already paid for your hotel room in New Orleans back in 2001).

    Yeah, I’d rather have a rapist at QB rather than a guy who hasn’t had a haircut in awhile. Thank you for pointing out my shame, Steeler’s fan.

  16. Steeler fans have a QB whose a sexual predator and a drunk and they’re embarrassed about Brady and his haircut?? ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

  17. That’s why I didn’t see either of them at the pro golf tournament near Foxboro this weekend. Hopefully it is enough money to take care of his baby mommas and babies.

  18. Flake: You’re right…Tom’s hair is much more embarrasing, than you know…say, raping someone.
    Just sayin’

  19. “The parameters: A three-year, $58 million extension. (His 2010 money would apparently stay the same at $6.5 million, making it a four-year, $64.5 million deal.)”
    NOT.
    That’s a pretty liberal use of writers priveledge. Why not go back another year or two…
