Brady OK's Contract to Become NFL's Top Player
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the contract says Tom Brady has agreed to a four-year extension that would make him the NFL's highest paid player.

The contract for the New England Patriots quarterback is worth an average of $19 million per year and begins in 2011, a person with knowledge of the deal said Thursday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the paperwork had not yet been filed with the NFL.

Brady is making $6.5 million this season.

The contract was first reported by Peter King of Sports Illustrated during halftime of NBC's telecast of the Minnesota-New Orleans game.
