FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Tom Brady isn't focusing on his contract after quarterback Philip Rivers signed a lucrative deal with the San Diego Chargers.
Brady said Tuesday he's thought about the status of his contract, which expires after the 2010 season. But he's more concerned with preparing for the New England Patriots season after missing the last 15 games in 2008 with a knee injury.
The NFL's 2007 MVP is in the fifth year of a six-year contract worth $60 million. On Monday, Rivers signed a six-year contract through 2015 worth $93 million with $38 million guaranteed. Eli Manning of the New York Giants recently signed a six-year, $97 million extension with $35 million guaranteed.
Brady said contract negotiations always work out, one way or another.
