Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have begun discussions on a new contract, according to a report from the Boston Heralds Jeff Howe.

A source told Howe on Thursday the sides have expressed mutual interest in a reworked deal. The negotiations were described as very early talks.

Bradys current contract " which is viewed as one of the best bargains in professional sports " runs through the 2019 season. The quarterback is set to make just $1 million in base salary next season and will pocket a $13 million signing bonus, bringing his cap hit to $14 million. Forty-two players have higher 2017 cap hits, including 21 quarterbacks.

In 2018 and 2019, that cap hit jumps to $22 million, with Brady set to make $14 million in salary, $7 million in signing bonus and $1 million in roster bonus each season, according to Spotrac.
