Licht: Buccaneers open to giving Brady a contract extension

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are open to giving Tom Brady a contract extension.

General manager Jason Licht reiterated Wednesday that the Super Bowl champions would like to keep the 43-year-old quarterback in uniform for as long as Brady wants to play. Licht declined to characterize any conversations the team's had about that prospect.

"We don't typically talk about those discussions publicly," Licht said during a video conference call in which he and coach Bruce Arians discussed free agency and efforts to retain several potential free agents instrumental to the team's championship run.
