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.
