FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady has signed his two-year contract extension with the Patriots that will give him a $28 million signing bonus.
Although Brady will earn only $1 million in base salary next season and in 2017, the bonuses will increase his cap hit to $14 million in each of those seasons. His base salary for 2018 and 2019 would be $14 million, with cap hits of $22 million each, although Brady, 38, is likely to redo those deals, too, if he is still playing.
Brady has reworked his contract several times during his career, in which New England has won four Super Bowls.
Brady also could face a reinstatement of his four-game suspension in the deflated footballs saga from the 2014 AFC title game. If that happens, he would lose less than $250,000 in salary.
