Bucs GM Says Signing Tom Brady to an Extension is a “Possibility”

Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht went on "The Rich Eisen Show" on Tuesday and was asked about signing Tom Brady to an extension.  He certainly made it seem like Tampa was interested in keeping the 43-year-old past next season.

Licht called signing Brady to an extension a "possibility."  He wouldn't reveal whether or not he's already started those conversations with the 7 time Super Bowl champ.

From Pro Football Talk:

“It’s a possibility,” Licht said. “He certainly didn’t look like he slowed down any this year. That’s a possibility and we’ll have to see how that goes. . . . It appears that he really had a good time this year winning the Super Bowl. Likes our organization, likes our coaches, likes our head coach and ownership and we certainly love him. Usually when you have those two things going for each other, it’s a match made in heaven so we’d like to keep this going.”

This is a no-brainer.  If Brady says he wants to play until he's 45 you better sign him until he's 45.  He just took the Bucs to a Super Bowl and walked right through Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

You keep Brady on your roster until he shows he can't play anymore or decides to ride off into the sunset.  It's really that simple.
