Tom Brady is under contract with the Patriots until he’s 42 years old.
Brady and the Patriots have agreed on a two-year contract extension that locks him up through the 2019 season, Adam Schefter and Dianna Marie Russini of ESPN report. Brady is 38 now and will turn 42 in August of 2019.
There’s no immediate word on the financial terms of the deal. Brady is currently scheduled to cost $15 million against the Patriots’ 2016 cap and $16 million against the Patriots’ 2017 cap. When veterans agree to contract extensions, it often lowers the cap hit in the first year and pushes more money down the road.
Although Brady is getting on in years, he’s still playing well and has said he wants to play into his 40s. It’s not often that a 38-year-old has four more years on his contract, but there aren’t many pairings like Brady and the Patriots.
