After months of speculation about his contract situation that bled into training camp, it appears that Tom Brady is finally getting his extension, as the 42-year-old quarterback is finalizing a new deal with the Patriots, according to ESPN's Field Yates and Adam Schefter.

Schefter reports that Brady's extension is for two years, which will take him through the 2021 season. The deal also reportedly adjusts his contract for this season, as he will now make $23 million this season -- $8 million more than he was due to make.

Both Brady and Bill Belichick weren't answering questions about the contract situation during the first week of training camp, with Brady never having entered a season without an extension finalized.
