Tom Brady has time and time again taken team friendly contracts to stay with the Patriots.  The five rings say it’s worked out pretty well for both parties.

Adam Schefter reported on Thursday that the Patriots are working on a new deal that would pay Brady closer to what the top QBs make.  The new deal is expected to be heavily incentive based. 

Those rumors that Brady wasn’t happy with the contract Jimmy Garoppolo landed in San Francisco must be true.  Why else does a deal need to be done now?  

It could also be Brady’s last shot to cash out before retirement.  Which could be coming sooner than previously thought.
