Bucs open to a Brady extension
TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht reiterated Wednesday that the Super Bowl champions would like to keep the 43-year-old quarterback Tom Brady in uniform for as long as Brady wants to play. Licht declined to characterize any conversations the team’s had about that prospect.
“We don’t typically talk about those discussions publicly,” Licht said.
Brady threw for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns to lead the Bucs to their first playoff appearance since 2007.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion signed a twoyear, $50 million contract in free agency last March following a historic 20-season stint with the New England Patriots. He’ll turn 44 in August and has said he’s liked to play until he’s at least 45.
