Brady gives Buccaneers cap relief, signs an extension

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed quarterback Tom Brady. It’s a unique deal.

It’s a four-year extension. However, it adds just another year onto his package for the 2022 season.

Following the 2022 season, there are voidable years at the backend of the deal. This will allow the Buccaneers to defray the cost moving forward.

This extension also saves the Buccaneers $19 million in cap space.

“When we acquired Tom a year ago, we were extremely excited about the leadership, poise and winning track record that he would bring to our locker room. Since that time, he has proven himself to be the ultimate competitor and delivered in every way we had imagined, helping us capture the Lombardi Trophy,” Tampa Bay general manager Jason Licht said in a statement Friday. “Year after year, Tom proves that he remains one of the elite quarterbacks in this game and we couldn’t be happier to keep him in Tampa Bay as we continue to pursue our goals together.”

This extension allows the Buccaneers — the reigning Super Bowl Champions — to keep the band together for the upcoming 2021 season. Tampa Bay has a handful of key players that they will attempt to re-sign in the coming days.

The Buccaneers have franchise tagged wide receiver Chris Godwin. The team has also re-signed linebacker Lavonte David.

However, the team still needs to sign Shaq Barrett, Rob Gronkowski, Ndamukong Suh, Antonio Brown, Leonard Fournette, and Ryan Succop if they truly intend to keep the entire team together for another season.
