Tom Brady expected to play at least four more years

New England Patriots quarterback has said he’d like to play until he’s 50. He’s also said that he wants to play, “until I suck.”

Based on the future Hall of Famer’s play last season, it doesn’t look like he’ll suck anytime soon.

Today, ESPN reports that the 38-year-old quarterback has agreed with the Patriots on a two-year contract extension.

With two years remaining on his current deal, the extension would take him through the 2019 season, which puts him at age 42 when it ends.

The deal is not yet signed, but it’s great news for Patriots fans, who can look forward to at least four more years of rooting for one of the best players to ever play the game.

Also, if he does complete the entirety of the four year extension, it would make Brady just the third player in NFL history to play 20 years for the same team.
