Report: Details of Brady’s Contract Emerge

The fine print of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s new contract has been released.

NFL insider Ian Rapoport detailed the stipulations in the contract which renders the team unable to franchise tag the six-time Super Bowl champion.

What this means is that Brady cannot be franchise tagged when his contract expires in 2020. The minute the league year begins in 2020, teams can make their calls to the quarterback. The Patriots have two only options when it comes Brady. Either hand out a new contract or let him walk.

The team infamously used the franchise tag on one of the 42-year old’s all-time favorite targets Wes Welker in 2012. Belichick ultimately let him walk in 2013. The Patriots used tags as well on Stephen Gostkowski, Asante Samuel, Logan Mankins, Tebucky Jones, Adam Vinatieri, and Matt Cassel.

The three-time NFL MVP seemingly does not want to go through the headache of the tag like his former teammates.

What matters most right now to Patriots fans is that the Michigan alum is not focused on renegotiating yet another contract in 2020.

“I’m excited for this team and this year,” Brady told Willie McGinest. “It’s a tough journey man and it’s a long haul, there’s a lot to learn, we’re trying some new things.”
