Patriots to adjust Brady's contract with added incentives

Final wet prep for preseason opener

"Speak for Yourself" host Jason Whitlock on the fallout from the NFL national anthem protests.

Brady is now scheduled to make $15 million this season, and the team is adding the incentives to bring him to closer to the market, the source told Schefter.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did not play in New England's preseason opener against the Washington Redskins because he is dealing with a sore back, the Boston Globe's Jim McBride reported late Thursday evening.

The adjustments are similar to what the Patriots did past year with tight end Rob Gronkowski's deal, the source told Schefter.

Recently retired tight end Martellus Bennett, who played in the National Football League for a decade, spent his final season as teammates with the two best quarterbacks now playing: Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.

Brady, the reigning NFL MVP, is signed through the 2019 season.

In the last several years, quarterback Tom Brady has been willing to take a pay cut with his contract for the betterment of the team to help bring in more talent to the team.

Even with his salary likely to sit at roughly $20 million, Brady will be a bargain among quarterbacks of his calibre. Ten other quarterbacks have a higher salary cap value than Brady, who is slated to earn $15 million in 2018.
