Tom Brady, Patriots in Early Talks for New Deal

The New England Patriots and Tom Brady are discussing a new deal.

According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, both parties have had “very early talks” about a new contract but no deal is imminent.

Last year he had signed an extension through 2019, but having just led the Patriots to their greatest Super Bowl, Brady now has a very strong case for a raise.

He was set to earn a base salary of just $1 million in 2017, but, with a $13-million bonus. His cap hit was set to increase to $22 million in each of the next two seasons, but according to some, New England would rather tear up that deal and create a new one.

Brady isn’t in it for the money. If he can restructure his deal in order to keep some of the Patriots key pieces, he’d be the first person to do so.
