Hours after Tom Brady made his move to Tampa official on Friday, details of the legendary quarterback’s contract with the Buccaneers began to surface — and they might include a hint about Brady’s future plans.
It is a two-year deal worth a guaranteed $50 million, according to ESPN.
Those terms are in line with what previous reports suggested the contract would look like after Brady revealed on Tuesday he would be leaving the New England Patriots after 20 years and six Super Bowl championships.
The 42-year-old’s contract also includes up to $9 million in incentives while preventing trades and free-agency tags being placed on Brady.
The tag restriction could mean Brady is thinking about playing beyond this contract. In the past, Brady has said he wants to play until he’s 45, despite all of his successes on the field and the $235 million he made from the Patriots.
Brady, who will be 43 when he makes his Bucs debut, said in a statement Friday he was “hungry” to get going with his new team, which is filled with plenty weapons on offense as it tries to end a 13-year postseason drought.
