It’s safe to say that it’s been one of the craziest days in Tom Brady’s life. First, he began the morning by getting into a serious car accident in Boston’s Back Bay. By the end of the day, he had agreed to sign the richest deal for any quarterback in the NFL, a four-year pact until 2013 with an average of $19 million per season.
SI.com’s Peter King first reported the deal, saying that he had a conversation with Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who said the deal is largely completed and will be submitted to the league for approval on Friday morning. Sources later confirmed that the deal is ready for approval.
Brady will be in a Patriots uniform until he’s 38 years old, giving him a chance to either retire as a Patriot, or play until he’s 40 (like he previously had said) by signing one last contract in 2013.
