Tom Brady to extend his contract with the Buccaneers beyond 2021?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers GM Jason Licht recently featured on The Rich Eisen Show. The host did not think twice before asking Licht about a potential Tom Brady contract extension in Florida, to which Licht replied, “That’s a possibility.

“He certainly didn’t look like he slowed down at all this year. So that’s a possibility. And we’ll have to see how that goes.

“I talk to Tom often okay, but you’ll probably keep that under wraps right now…he really had a good time this year, winning the Super Bowl and likes our organization, likes our coaches, likes our head coach and ownership and we certainly love him.

“So usually when you have those two things going for each other. You can say it’s a match made in heaven,” Licht said on the show.

Brady and his band of speedsters will definitely be one of the favorites to run it back in 2021. Bruce Arians and his revered coaching staff did a fantastic job last season. But do you think they can make it 2-wins-in-2? Tell us in the comments below.
