The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ general manager appeared in “The Rich Eisen Show” on Tuesday and spoke about the possibility of signing Tom Brady for an extension. The extension will keep the veteran quarterback around for more than the two-year contract he had previously.
After winning his seventh Super Bowl, Tom Brady’s N.F.L. career seems poised to extend beyond the two seasons for which he has signed in Tampa Bay. The question is already posed to Jason Licht, the general manager, considering an extension for G.O.A.T.
What Licht has to say for the private extension of Tom Brady?
Licht conveyed on the Rich Eisen show, “I will be keeping this conversation with Tom Brady private. An extension is one option.”
Licht conveyed, “That is a possibility. He certainly did not look like he slowed down any this year. So, that is a possibility. We will have to see how it all goes.”
He also conveyed, “I talk to Tom often. Probably keep that under wraps right now. It appears that he had a good time this year, winning the Super Bowl. Likes our organization, likes our coaches, likes our head coach and ownership. And we certainly love him. Usually, when you have those things going for each. It is a match made in happen, so we would like to keep this going.”
Why does Licht want Brady to stay?
Licht repeated on Wednesday his desire for Tom Brady to stay.
Licht via N.F.L. Network’s James Palmer conveys to the reporters, “We would love to have Tom play here, I can speak for [head coach] Bruce [Arians] I think, as long as he continues to want to play. If that comes to fruition at some point, then we would be elated. Besides, I would like to keep those conversations private that we have right now.”
Moreover, the Rich Eisen Show tweets, “Couldn’t talk to #GoBucs GM Jason Licht without asking him directly if he’s already working on a contract extension for @TomBrady: # N.F.L.”
Brady enjoyed this season in Tampa Bay, including his wish to play past 45 years old, will command the future. Besides, he decided he wants to check out free agency once again next year after relishing his first venture on the open market.
TB12 is set to earn $25 million this season, with a cap number of $28.375 million.
With a batch of Bucs players heading to free agency, Tampa could use an extension. This extension keeps the Q.B. in town after this season and frees up cap space in the short term to make a run at Brady’s eighth Lombardi.
