Tom Brady will remain in Patriots blue a little while longer.

Brady and the Pats inked a two-year contract extension, keeping him in New England through 2019, ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Dianna Marie Russini reported Monday morning. Brady will be 42 years old when his contract expires.

The four-time Super Bowl champion answered critics after an offseason marred by Deflategate with a 10-0 start last season before falling to Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos in overtime. The Patriots would lose to the Broncos once again in the AFC Championship game, and Manning would go on to win his second Super Bowl.

In October, Brady said he would like to play another 10 years. “Well, it’s not always up to me,” he told the Associated Press. “That’s what my goals are, so that’s just what I’m hoping. And it will take a lot to achieve that. Obviously, a team has to want you, but I think that’s, you know, I love playing this sport. I love making a commitment to my teammates and my coaches, and hopefully I can do it for a long time.”
