Bruce Arians “wouldn’t be surprised” by Tom Brady extension

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has spent some time talking about the future this week.

Brady said early in the week that he’s given thought to playing past the age of 45 and followed that up by sharing his belief that next year will be better than this one. That year is the second and final one on the deal Brady signed with the Bucs last offseason, but his performance and desire to keep playing has some people thinking about a longer relationship.

One person thinking that way asked Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians if there have been any talks about a contract extension at this point. Arians said that isn’t his department, but has no reason to think they wouldn’t be fruitful ones.

“I think Tom’s real happy where he’s at, and I wouldn’t be surprised,” Arians said at his Thursday video conference.

Given how well this year went for player and team, Arians will likely have plenty of company in that regard if the two sides do come together on another agreement.

  1. This Bucs fan would love to see Brady sign a two or three year extension (and then hopefully another extension after that).

  2. Hmmm wheres that troll Touchback6 to tell us repeatedly how it was Brady holding back the New England offense the last couple years he was there…

  3. Add Tom to the growing list of elite quarterbacks who have zero interest playing for the Patriots, Bill Belichick, and those fans.

  4. there’s going to be two parts to the pro football hall of fame. to your right, you’ll find all of the mortal players inducted to the hall. and, to your left, you’ll find the TB12 wing.

    He disappeared a few weeks ago, He wonder why?

    #GOAT

  6. The Bucs need to do something. Extending Brady kicks the cap can a couple more years in the future.

  7. Arians stays. Gronk stays. AB stays. Brady 2 more He’s not going to let Manning have 4 with Denver and another ring. He’s after 2 more rings. He’s got all the goodies around him now to make it work. Really hard on the Brady haters.

  8. Next year will be better. Brady will get acclimated with the Bucs system, their players, and will be familiarized with his NFC opponent teams. He’s been with the Patriots for 20 years, facing familiar opponents, then the sudden switch with no pre-season priming. Old GOAT learning new tricks and going to the SB. Simply insane.

  9. Now I know Tom Brady is channeling Dorian Gray.

    If it’s something in his water, please send some this way.

  10. With 33 postseason wins, Brady has won more in the playoffs than nearly every FRANCHISE. If he wins Sunday, and then wins the 2022 Super Bowl with three postseason games next year, he will move ahead of Pittsburgh, Green Bay and Dallas, and into a tie with — wait for it — New England. Wow.

    You do know that he played in New England for 20 years, right? He didn’t bail after his rookie deal because he couldn’t handle the team/coach/fans. Something tells me he probably thinks about his time in Foxboro pretty fondly.

    New England is still one of the best destinations of you want to work hard and win. We’re interested in those types.

    As far as Brady leaving, he spent 20 years in NE and became the greatest player ever. He just expressed his love for the fans and his time there.

    Now, you can go back to being misguided…

  13. This guy has been the best QB of his Era for sure, but take the D away and the bought and paid for offensive line and WRs and TEs then you have Brady trying to win with with team with way less talent. There is no chance they can keep that roster together. This was a one and done buy a roster SB run.
    Get out on top Brady. You stick around you will be 8-8 next year.
