Quarterback Tom Brady reportedly agreed to terms on a contract extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that will enable him to reach his goal of playing in the NFL until he is at least 45.

ESPN reported on Friday that Brady and the Buccaneers reached an agreement on a four-year contract extension that voids to a one-year extension.

Brady, who will turn 44 in August, is contractually linked with the Buccaneers through the 2022 season.

The fancy footwork with the contract saves Tampa Bay $19 million against the cap this season. The three voidable years of the deal creates salary-cap room for the team.

Brady signed a two-year deal in free agency in March 2020, exiting New England for $25 million in 2020 and the same amount in 2021.

Brady’s first season in Tampa Bay was an unmitigated success.

He earned his seventh Super Bowl ring last month when the Buccaneers cruised to a 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. He threw three touchdowns while winning Super Bowl MVP honors for the fifth time.

Brady threw for 4,633 yards and tossed a team-record 40 touchdown passes, his second-highest total in a single season in his career.
