Tom Brady appears to want a few more shots at winning another title with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 43-year-old has reportedly agreed to a contract extension with the Super Bowl champs.

Brady and Tampa Bay have reached a deal that ties the quarterback to the Buccaneers through the 2022 NFL season, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. It’s technically a four-year extension, though the deal can be avoided to a one-year extension.

Last offseason, Tampa Bay signed Brady to a two-year, $50 million contract in free agency. The extension adds another season onto the original deal.

The move is said to free up $19 million in salary-cap space for the Bucs this year and assist in Tampa Bay’s quest to bring back key components of its championship roster.

Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, Leonard Fournette, and Shaq Barrett are all unsigned for the 2021 season. The Bucs used the franchise tag on Chris Godwin and signed Lavonte David to a new deal.

Brady’s cap hit for next season was set to be $28.3 million. 

With the new extension, Brady is likely to keep playing through his age-45 season. The quarterback has said he would consider remaining in the NFL beyond his 45th birthday.

“Yeah, definitely. I would definitely consider that,” Brady told reporters the Monday before Super Bowl LV when asked if he would play past 45 years old. “Again, it’s a physical sport and just the perspective I have on that is you never know when that moment is. Just because it’s a contact sport and there’s a lot of training that goes into it. Again, it has to be 100% commitment from myself to keep doing it.”

In February, Brady became the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl, breaking the record he set in 2019 when he led the New England Patriots to a championship at 41 years old.

Brady won his record fifth Super Bowl MVP award. He threw three touchdown passes and no interceptions in Tampa Bay’s victory over Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Bucs are among the favorites to win the 2022 Super Bowl.
