Tom Brady’s day had a scary start, but it’s going to have have a happy ending.
Peter King reported during NBC’s halftime show that the Patriots have finalized a four-year contract extension with Tom Brady that runs through 2014. The information comes directly from Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
Kraft and King didn’t discuss contract terms, but King says it’s “safe to say” Brady is now the league’s highest paid play averaging roughly $19 million a year.
The deal will be official on Friday when the Patriots file paperwork with league office in New York.
Not a bad way for Brady — not to mention the league — to start the season.
