Tom Brady will likely finish his NFL career having played for two different franchises. The six-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback spent his first 20 seasons in New England. The next one or two (or more) are expected to be spent in Tampa Bay.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter provided a Wednesday night update on Brady's contract negotiations. He's expected to finalize his contract within a day or two.

"Contract language more challenging this off-season than any time in recent memory. No problems foreseen with Bucs-Brady, but no deal yet," he reports.

Only one quarterback in NFL history has started games in both New England and Tampa Bay (according to Jeff Carlson, anyway). Carlson had a Wednesday message for Brady, who should become No. 2. "Great city to settle down," he wrote.

Brady, 42, is reportedly seeking a two-year commitment from Tampa Bay worth roughly $60 million. He's expected to get just that on Thursday or Friday.
