The New England Patriots will add $5 million in performance-based incentives to Tom Brady's contract by this weekend, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN on Thursday.

Brady is currently scheduled to make $15 million this season, and the team is adding the incentives to bring him to closer to the market, the source told Schefter.

The adjustments are similar to what the Patriots did last year with tight end Rob Gronkowski's deal, the source told Schefter.

Brady, the reigning Most Valuable Player who turns 41 on Aug. 3 and is entering his 19th season under coach Bill Belichick,, has two years remaining on his contract.

His most recent extension, in 2016, paid him an average of $20.5 million per season. The highest-paid quarterback in the NFL is currently Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons, who signed a deal worth $30 million per season.
