Patriots, Brady agree to extension

Super Bowl LI Odds 2/29/15 – Favored Patriots sign Tom Brady to extension

The New England Patriots are continuing their commitment to Tom Brady as their starting quarterback for the near future, agreeing to a new 2-year contract extension on Monday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini are reporting that the Patriots and Brady have agreed to a deal that will keep him as the team’s quarterback through the 2019 season. Brady was working on a deal that had two years remaining, paying him $9 million for the upcoming season and $10 million in 2017. The financial numbers have yet to be released, but they are likely to lower Brady’s $15 million cap hit for the upcoming season.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Patriots remain the favorite to win Super Bowl LI, as they have 15/2 odds. The Steelers and Broncos have the second-shortest odds to win at 9/1 each. You can see more NFL Futures Odds by clicking the link.

They were his best numbers in TDs since 2011 (39) and best in yards since 2012 (4,827). Brady has played for 16 seasons and now has 58,028 passing yards and 428 touchdowns over his career. He was able to lead New England to the AFC Championship last season before losing to the Broncos and won the Super Bowl in the 2014 season.
