Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Comments On Tom Brady's $72 Million Extension

Patriots owner Robert Kraft confirmed to Peter King of NBC on Thursday night that they were close to finalizing a four-year extension with quarterback Tom Brady.

The Boston Herald reports the extension is worth $72 million and includes $48.5 million guaranteed.

Kraft said there were doubts that a deal would get done at times.

”You’re never sure because it’s hard,” he said. ”You’ve got two sides. You’ve got agents, but everyone’s trying to help, but it gets complicated, but now, please God, he’ll be the quarterback here for 15 years. which is unusual.”

Brady's extension will keep him in New England through 2014.
