Tom Brady and the Patriots have reached agreement on a contract extension through 2019, according to CSN New England's Tom E. Curran.
The news was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The deal will significantly lessen Brady's salary cap hit for 2016, which would have been about $15 million. He was due to make $9 million next season, plus a $6 million bonus, and $10 million in salary in 2017.
Brady, 38, has often redone his contract to help the Patriots' cap situation. The four-time Super Bowl champion has said he plans to play well into his 40s. The extension would allow him to do so in New England.
