Report: Patriots willing to make substantial financial commitment to keep Tom Brady
The New England Patriots are willing to basically empty their pockets in order to keep quarterback Tom Brady in Boston.
NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported recently that the Patriots are willing to pay Brady in excess of $30 million per year in order to keep him in New England. That would be an incredible financial commitment for the 42-year-old quarterback.
While spending the money on Brady certainly helps New England’s chances to retain their superstar quarterback, Brady also wants some extra cash to be spent on some playmakers. According to Rapoport, Brady wants more weapons on the offensive side of the football in order to make another run at a Super Bowl title.
It should make the next few weeks and months really interesting for the Patriots.
Brady has spent his entire career in New England, bringing the franchise six Super Bowl championships and playing in nine total. He’s also a 14-time Pro Bowl quarterback.
Seeing Brady in a different uniform would be weird — much like when Peyton Manning left the Indianapolis Colts for the Denver Broncos. But with Brady’s career winding down, the quarterback also wants to add a few more Super Bowl rings to his collection.
The organization that makes that a priority will likely land the future Hall of Famer.
