TOM BRADY agreed to a 3-year contract extension with the New England Patriots on Monday, a person familiar with the contract told the Associated Press. The extension is worth about $27 million and will free up nearly $15 million in salary-cap room. The 35-year-old, two-time league MVP was signed through 2014, and has said he wants to play at least 5 more years. Brady will make far less in those three seasons than the going rate for star quarterbacks.   Noteworthy *  The San Francisco 49ers are in talks to trade backup quarterback Alex Smith, ESPN reported, citing league sources.No NFL trades are permitted until March 12. * Star defensive tackle Star Lotulelei, from Utah, expected to be drafted high in the first round in April, has a heart condition, his agent said, and will undergo more extensive testing.

WHEN THE NFL asked Tom Brady for his cellphone, he should have just said "no. " The league wanted to examine texts the Patriots quarterback may have sent or received regarding the "Deflategate" scandal that ended with him receiving a four-game suspension for the start of the upcoming season. Tom Terrific, of course, was under no legal obligation to hand over the phone. He told investigator Ted Wells he had nothing to do with under-inflating footballs used in last season's AFC Championship Game.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Tom Brady's pass deflected high into the air before floating gently downfield and into the arms of Baltimore linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. The ball - and the rematch - went to the Ravens. A year after the New England Patriots took advantage of a dropped touchdown pass and a missed Baltimore field goal to advance to their fifth Super Bowl in 11 seasons, the Ravens earned a 28-13 victory on Sunday in the AFC Championship Game. "It always comes to a screeching halt," Brady said.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - You again! Ray vs. Tom. Tom vs. Ray. Oh yeah, the Ravens and Patriots, along for the ride. Ray Lewis' last ride, one Tom Brady hopes to cut short on Sunday in the AFC championship game. A year after a brutal last-minute loss in Foxborough, Baltimore is back, looking for a reversal of fortune and a spot in the Super Bowl for the first time since winning it in 2001. If the Ravens fall again, Lewis' superb 17-year career as the NFL's best linebacker of his era will end as he retires.

The National Football League Players Association has added Theodore B. Olson to its legal team in the important fight to prevent quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from starting four games for the New England Patriots in the coming season. A lot must be riding on the outcome, because Olson, a former Solicitor General of the United States who has argued 62 cases before the Supreme Court, doesn't come cheap. He's pretty good, though, having won three-quarters of those cases, and he covered the spread in a bunch of the others.

Giving Tom the thumb That's what  Gisele Bundchen  was thinking of doing back when she was first dating gridiron hunk  Tom Brady , the top model told "CBS This Morning. " And all over some little thing . . . like he got some other girlfriend pregnant. Geez, some people have a low threshold of embarrassment. Just as their romance was starting to kick in, back in 2007, came word that actress  Bridget Moynahan  was carrying Brady's child (and not like in a draw-play kind of carry)

IF YOU'RE not exhausted by the continuing non-dramatics surrounding Deflategate, you're either a Patriots fan, a Patriots hater or an idiot. Insert punch line. The insulting irrelevance of the offense - because that's what it was - is exceeded only by the astounding arrogance of Tom Brady in his pursuit of a degree of exoneration. That's what this really is. Tom Brady believes he is bigger than the system; better than the system. Granted, the system is flawed . . . but no more flawed for Brady than for anyone else.

IT WAS A Saturday to forget for Tom Brady. First, came word that Mariners fans - who no doubt also cheer for the Seahawks - had chanted, "Brady cheated," during a 4-2 loss to the visiting Red Sox at Safeco Field. Is anyone surprised? Brady, who is in the process of appealing his four-game suspension for his role in Deflategate, led the Patriots to a Super Bowl win over Seattle in February. While he may get his suspension reduced, Seattle fans are not likely to ever forgive him. Later that night, Brady was lampooned on "Saturday Night Live," a show that he has hosted.

Kevin Gross has spent much of the last two months enjoying his regular bass-fishing trips to the forests and lakes of the American West, never joining the national fixation on Deflategate and his brother in ball-doctoring, Tom Brady. "I don't watch SportsCenter ," Gross said Tuesday. So he had only a cursory grasp of the details, and he'd never contemplated his connection to Brady's four-game suspension, to maybe the most overblown scandal in sports history. On Aug. 10, 1987, while Gross was pitching for the Phillies, umpires found a piece of sandpaper glued inside his glove and ejected him from a game against the Chicago Cubs.

WHEN LAST we saw Tom Brady, New England's favorite superhero was wearing a Charlie Brown smile while Jim Gray grilled him gently about the findings in the Ted Wells report. "I haven't had a chance to digest it fully," Brady told Gray and a raucously supportive audience at Salem (Mass.) State College back on May 7. "But when I do, I'll be sure to let you know how I feel about it. And everyone else. " This morning, 47 days later, Brady, his agent and his attorneys will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to share those feelings.

THERE WASN'T one particular thing that killed the 2015 Eagles. They were a dead team walking from the Week 1 opening kickoff. They were a grossly overweight two-pack-a-day smoker with diabetes and a bad ticker and a side order of severe emphysema. Ironically, one of last season's many low points could turn out to be very beneficial to the fortunes of the 2016 Eagles. Early in the second quarter of the Eagles' 45-14 Thanksgiving Day loss to the Detroit Lions, starting cornerback Nolan Carroll suffered a broken right leg that ended his season.

WELL, IT IS DONE! The beloved Eagles picked Carson Wentz from North Dakota State with the second selection in the NFL draft to be their quarterback of the future. They gave up almost a king's ransom in draft choices to get the second pick. Was it worth it? I'm afraid the answer is no. I am afraid, because I hope with all my heart that Wentz turns out to be, if not a Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, at least a Drew Brees or Philip Rivers. I hope I am wrong because if the actuarial tables are right, Wentz could be the Eagles' quarterback for the rest of my lifetime, and, Carson, if you see this, winning the Super Bowl is on my bucket list.

INDIANAPOLIS - The brain and the heart aren't technically muscles, but both organs can grow and get stronger the more you learn and the more you exercise. But every brain and heart isn't the same. Some brains have a greater capacity to learn, and some hearts, metaphorically speaking, are more courageous than others. For Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians, they are the keys to solving the mystery of finding a Super Bowl-winning quarterback. Every year, NFL teams invest mass amounts of time and money in the search, and every year there will be far more misses than hits in the draft.

I WILL BE rooting for the Broncos in the Super Bowl. Not because I have a great admiration for Peyton Manning the player (although this is true). Nor because I have been picking against the Panthers all season and have one last chance to get it right (also true). No, I will be rooting for the Broncos in the Super Bowl because a victory by Denver will be a victory over tyranny. Specifically, the tyranny that playoff victories and Super Bowl titles inflict upon arguments concerning the greatness of quarterbacks.

IT IS NOT so much that the Eagles learned something from Sunday's NFL championship games. They were another affirmation of what the Eagles already knew. The absolute necessity of having a franchise-level quarterback is no secret. It is the most important individual position in any team sport. A legendary quarterback like Tom Brady can establish a dynasty. If an all-world talent like Cam Newton puts it all together, a mediocre team like the Carolina Panthers can register the best regular-season record in the league.

BRING ON the snow and bring on the conference championship games. Sunday's doubleheader is typically fascinating. Four great quarterbacks. All sorts of talented wide receivers. Denver's great defense. Carolina's great linebackers. Just hope the zebras don't get in the way. There are enough story lines in these games for a dozen daytime soap operas. Here are just a few: Patriots (13-4) at Broncos (13-4) Seeds: Patriots, AFC-2; Broncos, AFC-1. When: Sunday, 3:05 p.m. TV: CBS (Jim Nantz, Phil Simms, Tracy Wolfson, Evan Washburn)

THE 17TH EDITION of Brady-Manning is fun, but making some cash off it would be even better. As we dwindle down to three games left in the fantasy gambling season, here are some thoughts. The first is that if you're thinking about putting money on the Pro Bowl, give me a call at 1-800-GAMBLER. Tom Brady has no running game to speak of and could chuck 50 times. Obviously, the personnel varies, but in six games against defenses coached by Wade Phillips, Brady is 5-1, with 17 touchdown passes and four interceptions.

It didn't take long for Tom Brady to test Eric Rowe. On the Patriots' first offensive series two weeks ago, the Hall of Fame-bound quarterback was flushed out of the pocket. Rowe was matched up against Brandon LaFell. The Patriots wide receiver pales in comparison to Detroit's Calvin Johnson, who had gotten the best of the Eagles cornerback in the previous game. But Rowe was making his first career start, and Brady more than compensated for LaFell. It was third down and long, so Rowe didn't press at the line.

Like most pass-rushers, Brandon Graham likes a quarterback who's easy to find. Tom Brady. Eli Manning. Carson Palmer. He'd rather line up across from those quarterbacks, as accomplished and skilled as they are, than he would against one who can scurry and scramble and will abandon the pocket for the sake of saving himself and extending the play. Graham is one of the Eagles' two starting outside linebackers. He's tied for the team lead in sacks with 61/2. He prefers an immobile target.
