Is Tom Brady Done After This Year?
I just read a news story about "The Goat" on espn.com and his new contract extension. It was everywhere all weekend and today that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had agreed on a two-year extension for like 70 million dollars.
But after reading the article it's clear to me that 2019 is his last year.
No question what Brady is doing is unheard of at 42 years old and still starting in the NFL, 20 years with one team. The Patriots are only tied to him for this year, which is kinda odd considering he did say he wanted to play till he's 45.
According to espn.com, here is a quote from Tom Brady: "I'm going to go out there and do the best I can this year and see what happens."
I'm trying to figure out if this was his doing or the Patriots said let's see what happens? Because they will have to do this whole contract thing again next year, which, according to espn.com, they will do.
Brady also says that the NFL is a tough business, and it's production-driven, which is all true and that he's really just looking at this year.
Someone asked him if he was excited that the contract stuff is over, he said in the article: "It is what it is, I have one year to go, we'll see what happens."
