Tom Brady extending with Buccaneers through 2022

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed quarterback Tom Brady to a one-year contact extension.

What It Means:

Brady is now signed through 2022 and the move frees up $19 million in cap space for the reigning Super Bowl Champions. The Buccaneers also placed the franchise tag on Chris Godwin earlier this week and Rob Gronkowski is expected to return to play for the only NFL quarterback he's ever known, so Brady should have no problem putting together another successful campaign in 2021. Brady will be 44 by the start of next season.

Brady averaged 21.8 FanDuel points per game during his first year with Tampa Bay and added the seventh-most Passing Net Expected Points per dropback among the 44 quarterbacks with 100-plus dropbacks.
