Source: Pats extend Brady; QB gets $23M in '19

The New England Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady have agreed to a two-year extension that will pay Brady $23 million this year, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The new contract will make Brady the sixth-highest paid quarterback in the league, a source said, tying him with Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints.

Brady would have become an unrestricted free agent after the 2019 season. He had been set to make $15 million this season.

News of the extension comes a day after Brady celebrated his 42nd birthday.
